Betting tips and match preview | Barclays Premier League
Leicester welcome Norwich to the King Power Stadium in a match that sees table toppers Leicester face 17th placed Norwich, with both sides looking to go one better after their last fixtures saw them produce a loss and a draw respectively.
Hosts Leicester come into this fixture on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal, which given their incredible run of results will disappoint manager Claudio Ranieri as he chases what would be an unprecedented Premier League title with the Foxes.
Prior to the loss against the Gunners they produced a world class performance at the Etihad to dispatch Manchester City by 3-1 and they will look to draw on that form as they look to move ever closer to the Premier League title.
A win would see Leicester extend their lead at the top to five points over rivals Tottenham and Arsenal who play on Sunday against Swansea and Manchester United respectively.
Norwich Getting Dragged Into A Relegation Battle
The visitors Norwich will also be looking to keep their unbeaten run going and they will also be looking to register a first win in six after their 2-2 draw against the in form Hammers. Alex Neil will take a lot from that performance but will be particularly disappointed that they squandered a 2-0 advantage at home and dropped a much needed two points in their quest to avoid the drop.
They currently find themselves 16 places and 29 points behind their hosts going into this match but they will be looking to the Arsenal result and believing that they can cause another upset against the top side in the Premier League.
With Newcastle level on points with Norwich and Sunderland only one points behind, Norwich will desperately need any points that they can get between now and the end of the season, they need 16 points from their last 12 fixtures to reach the magical forty point mark.
Leicester head into this fixture with a record of five wins and one loss in their last six league matches. Norwich are at the opposite end of the form table with five defeats and one draw in their last six matches.
Both teams are 5/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Leicester are Jamie Vardy at 3/1 and Shinji Okazaki at 9/2. For Norwich Steven Naismith, Dieumerci Mbokani and Cameron Jerome are at 10/1.
The last times these two sides met at the King Power Stadium back in 1995, Leicester won 1-0 and the odds of the same result are 6/1.
