STREAM LIVE NORWICH CITY vs LEICESTER CITY
Daniel Farke’s Norwich have lost against Liverpool and Manchester City to start the season, but that is a very tough start to their time back in the Premier League. Now, the Canaries can show how much they have improved and they have signed some talented young attackers this summer, including the USMNT’s Josh Sargent who scored twice in the big League Cup win against Bournemouth.
As for Leicester, well, they ground out an opening weekend win against Wolves but were ripped apart by West Ham, especially after Ayoze Perez was shown a straight red card. Brendan Rodgers’ side will soon have the Europa League grind to contend with too, so he will be hoping plenty of his players return to full fitness soon. The Foxes will be the favorites to win big in this one.

All signs point towards a solid away win for Leicester City, but something here tells me that Norwich will grind out a point. The Foxes have a lot of injury issues and the Canaries’ new signings were really good in their big win v. Bournemouth in the League Cup in midweek. I’m going for a bit of an upset with a draw. Norwich City 2-2 Leicester City.
