Leeds United vs Norwich City betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions & odds

Jesse Marsch took over from Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds to win and BTTS - 21/10

The leagues two leakiest defences mean there should be goals, despite Norwich's lacklustre efforts at the other end. Leeds should have enough to get past the Canaries, but there won't be much in it.

Patrick Bamford to score first - 7/2

It remains to be seen whether Bamford will start or not, but Leeds are so desperate for his goals that he might be thrown in at the deep end and relied upon to fire Jesse Marsch's side to a valuable win.

Match preview

The classic 'relegation six-pointer' at Elland Road sees two sides in a desperate run of form attempting to revive their survival hopes.

For Leeds, a promising display against Leicester was followed by a disastrous performance in the 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa which left fans disillusioned following the departure of Marcelo Bielsa.

With players desperately short of confidence and familiar weaknesses being exposed, there is growing acceptance in West Yorkshire that unless they pick up three points against their fellow strugglers, they face relegation to the Championship.

The half-empty stadium at the final whistle at Elland Road on Thursday suggested the players, management and board won't get the same backing and support as they would have done under Bielsa and with the players looking short of ideas on the pitch, it is likely to be another bleak day.

On the back of five successive defeats, Norwich are not much better off and currently five points adrift of safety.

Sunday effectively marks their best chance of clawing their way back into contention and the 3-1 home defeat to Brentford appears to have severely damaged any chances they had.

They will fancy upsetting Leeds however, with Dean Smith boasting a good record at Elland Road.

Leeds are desperately looking over their shoulders every matchday with Burnley and Everton primed to overtake them and ditch them into the bottom three so need to win, but Norwich have no choice but to win if they are to kick-start a run that effectively needs to see them pick up five or six wins in their remaining 10 games.

Leeds United team news

After Tyler Roberts was ruled out for the rest of the season against Leicester, Junior Firpo also looks set to miss an extended period through a suspect MCL suffered on Thursday.

That should offer Diego Llorente a way back into the side while Patrick Bamford could be given a start after managing half an hour, and Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper are still at least two weeks away.

Norwich City team news

Billy Gilmour will be available to Dean Smith again after missing out against his parent club on Thursday.

There was a first league start since August for Cristoph Zimmermann against Chelsea but he only made it through to half-time, so it may be asking too much for two games in four days while Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele are out.
