Leicester City vs Norwich CityEnglish Premier League, KO: 19:45 May 11, 2022, King Power Stadium
Leicester City will be looking to snap a recent poor run as they host already relegated Norwich City in a midweek Premier League fixture.
Leicester are going through a rough patch at the moment and are winless in their last seven matches across all competitions. That poor run has seen them crash out of the Europa Conference League while they are also currently in the bottom half of the table.
The Foxes head into Wednesday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Everton in their previous Premier League fixture. Having gone behind early in the encounter, they struck back through Patson Daka but went on to concede the winner before the break.
The good news for Leicester is that was their first defeat in their last seven Premier League home matches. Among the other results for Brendan Rodgers' men in that run are back-to-back 2-1 victories over Crystal Palace and Brentford.
Norwich City are only playing for pride at the moment having already been relegated from the Premier League. They travel to the King Power Stadium with just one win from their last 14 matches across all competitions.
It was yet another dismal display from Norwich City in their previous Premier League fixture as they were beaten 4-0 at home by West Ham. They proved to be no match for the Hammers throughout the contest and could only muster two attempts on target.
Things are even worse for Norwich City on their travels where they are winless in their last seven away matches. They have suffered six defeats in that run and were beaten 2-0 by Aston Villa in their previous fixture on the road.
How the bookies view it

Players to watch
Jamie Vardy made a cameo appearance off the bench last time out against Everton and could be handed a start on Wednesday. The striker remains Leicester City’s leading scorer with 10 Premier League goals and having also scored in the reverse fixture, could be tipped to find the net at 9/10 with SBK.
Goals have been hard to come by for Norwich City lately but Teemu Pukki remains their biggest attacking threat with 10 Premier League goals this season. The striker was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 27/10 by SBK to get on the score sheet on Wednesday.
