Leicester City vs Norwich City betting tips: Premier League match preview and predictions

Leicester vs Norwich prediction: Leicester 3-0 Norwich

Leicester just can’t stop winning.

They broke a club record last weekend and look simply unstoppable at this moment in time.

Thus, this is an incredibly daunting trip for Norwich City and they will need a miracle if they’re to leave the King Power Stadium with anything?

Will the home side be simply too strong in this one?

Leicester City vs Norwich City: Who will win?

Unsurprisingly, Leicester are overwhelming favourites, odds on at 1/4 to win this match.

Norwich City meanwhile are massive underdogs at 10/1 to win this one.

Even a draw would be a surprise and that is 5/1.

Over 2.5 goals is 2/5.

Both teams to score no is 5/6.

Leicester City to win and over 2.5 goals is 8/15.

Jamie Vardy is one of the most in form strikers in world football right now. He is 9/5 to open the scoring and 4/11 to score yet again.

Kelechi Ịheanachọ has also been amongst the goals lately. The Nigerian is 4/1 to score first and 6/5 to score yet again.

Teemu Pukki meanwhile is Norwich’s main man for goals. The Finn is 13/2 to break the deadlock and 2/1 add to his tally.

Todd Cantwell could also be a threat. He is 14/1 to score first and 9/2 to net anytime.

Both Ịheanachọ and Vardy to score is 9/4.

Both Youri Tielemans and James Maddison to score is 12/1.

Both Onel Hernández and Teemu Pukki to score is 28/1.

Leicester are simply unstoppable right now.

Last weekend, a brace from Jamie Vardy as well as goals from Kelechi Ịheanachọ and Jonny Evans saw them demolish Aston Villa 4-1 at Villa Park.

In truth, it could have been seven or eight if Leicester had taken all of their chances.

That means the Foxes have now won their last four away league games by an aggregate score of 17-1.

The only other time they have won four away matches on the spin was between October-December of their 2015/16 title winning season.

Overall, Brendan Rodgers’ side have now won their last eight Premier League games in a row; their best-ever winning run in their top-flight history.

That means they are second, eight points behind league-leaders Liverpool and a crucial 14 points above fifth placed Manchester United.

Their next three fixtures are a Carabao Cup quarter-final at Everton followed by league matches against Manchester City and then Liverpool.

Those games will show just where this Leicester team is.

Will they go into those with another win?

That seems the likely outcome.

Can Norwich cause a massive shock?

Norwich meanwhile are continuing to struggle to life back in the Premier League.

Last weekend, despite taking the lead through captain Alexander Tettey, the Canaries were beaten 2-1 at home by Sheffield United.

That means Daniel Farke is yet to see Norwich keep a clean sheet in his first eight home Premier League games, only one manager has a worse record.

Overall, that was another disappointing defeat just four days after a 2-1 defeat at Southampton.

The Championship Champions are currently second bottom, four points from safety having only won one of their last 11.

They are certainly not dead and buried just yet but are unlikely to enhance their survival hopes here.

Can Norwich contain one of the league’s in-form teams?

Brendan Rodgers had been picking a 4-1-4-1 formation up until last weekend.

However, after a devastating demolition of Villa, they’re likely to stick with the 4-4-2 diamond from that game.

Kasper Schmeichel will continue in goal; his tally of seven clean sheets is the most in the Premier League.

Ahead of him will be a settled back four.

Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, Çağlar Söyüncü and Ben Chilwell never miss a game at the back.

Despite the change in shape, Wilfred Ndidi will continue to anchor the midfield.

Ndidi has made 69 tackles in the league this season, only Ricardo has made more.

Playing a diamond does allow Dennis Praet to join Youri Tielemans and James Maddison in midfield.

Harvey Barnes, Demari Gray and Ayoze Pérez, who have been playing out-wide, are the casualties.

Up front, Jamie Vardy is, arguably, in the form of his life and that’s saying something.

He has now scored in eight consecutive Premier League games, becoming the first player to achieve that feat since he himself himself scored in 11 in a row in November 2015.

Also, since Brendan Rodgers’ first game in charge in March, Vardy has scored 25 Premier League goals.

That is eight more than any other player in that time.

He has been joined up-top by Kelechi Ịheanachọ.

The Nigerian has scored in all four of his appearances for Leicester this season, netting four times; as many as he’d scored in his previous 42 matches for the club.

Surely this side will blow Norwich away won’t they?

As for Norwich, despite defeat last weekend Daniel Farke will largely pick the same side.

Tim Krul will continue in goal; he has made the fifth-most saves in the Premier League this season but conceded the fourth most goals.

In defence, Christoph Zimmermann will continue alongside Ben Godfrey at centre-back.

The latter can boast the second-most blocks in the league this season.

They also have their first-choice full-backs available.

Max Aarons will continue on the right with Jamal Lewis back from injury on the other side.

In midfield, Alexander Tettey, Mario Vrančić and Kenny McLean started against Sheffield United.

They’re likely to be the trio once again with Marco Stiepermann, Tom Trybull and Ibrahim Amadou left out.

Incidentally, Tettey’s goal last weekend was his first in the Premier League for 1436 days.

Further forward, Onel Hernández and Emi Buendía will continue out-wide with Todd Cantwell missing out.

As always, Teemu Pukki will lead the line.

Can the Canaries pull off a very unlikely victory, just as they did against Manchester City in September?
