Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Leicester City will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Everton when they host Norwich City to their King Power Stadium. The Foxes do not seem to be at their sharpest in the season finale, but a win over Norwich City will see them secure the Premier League survival. All Ndidi, Bertrand, and Pereira remain in the recovery room, while fit-again top scorer Jamie Vardy is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
The Canaries, on the other hand, will compete in the Championship next season. The rock-bottom side are on a four-game losing run, and given their shaky defence, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. All Kabak, Omobamidele, McLean, Zimmermann, Sargent, and Idah remain in the recovery room for the visitors. In the first half of the season Leicester defeated Norwich 2-1 at Carrow Road.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
