THE TEAM NEWS

NORWICH

  • Norwich put in a poor performance as they were comfortably beaten by Wolves last weekend to make it four games without a league win.
  • Daniel Farke was not happy with his players in last week's defeat but is unlikely to make a raft of changes to his starting XI.
  • Christoph Zimmermann was absent with a thigh injury last week and he has been definitively ruled out while Buendia is carrying a knock.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis; Tettey, McLean; Buendia, Duda, Cantwell; Pukki

Unavailable: Klose (Injured), Byram (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Zimmermann (Injured)

Doubtful: Buendia (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester competed well with Man City last week but were defeated by a solitary goal late in the game against the Premier League champions.
  • Brendan Rodgers changed his side's shape to try and deal with Man City last week but is likely to revert to a more attacking line-up here.
  • Hamza Choudhury will be back after serving a one-match suspension but Wilfred Ndidi remains a doubt with a knee problem.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Choudhury; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), Mendy (Injured)

Doubtful: Iheanacho (Injured), Ndidi (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Norwich are running out of matches to retain their status in the Premier League and now face another difficult game as they host Leicester. The visitors have failed to win any of their last three league games but they should be able to return to winning ways by defeating the bottom side.
