Leicester vs Norwich Betting Preview | 14 Dec 2019

Leicester vs Norwich Betting Preview | 14 Dec 2019

Continuing on what has been a stellar run of form and looking to keep up the party atmosphere at the King Power, Leicester will host relegation scrappers Norwich on Saturday afternoon.

Putting four past another Premier League returner in Aston Villa last weekend, the Foxes have won each of their last eight Premier League matches on the bounce and are now seen to be Liverpool’s major title contender.

On the flip side, while Brendan Rodgers’ men might be enjoying a battle at the top of the table, Saturday’s guests find themselves in a very different position.

Throwing away a one-goal lead against Sheffield United in their last appearance, Norwich have won just one of their last 11 top-flight outings and are still seen to be a huge favourite to be hit with a Championship return next year.

Two sides enduring very different levels of success since opening the 2019/2020 campaign, Leicester are pencilled in as low as 2/9 with Ladbrokes to extend on their winning run this weekend.

The Jamie Vardy party continues

Putting in what is becoming an expected dominant display away at Villa Park last weekend and putting four past the top-flight returners, the mood around the King Power only continues to soar.

Already seen to be one of the leading contenders to secure a Champions League return next year, Brendan Rodgers’ men have won their last eight Premier League matches on the bounce and are simply looking to close the gap on league leaders Liverpool.

One man who has continued to spearhead Leicester’s European charge and is in the midst of a stellar purple patch is leading marksman, Jamie Vardy.

Bagging a brace in the Midlands last time out, the 32-year-old has already scored 16 goals this season and sits five strikes clear in the race for the Golden Boot.

Now finding the net in each of his last eight top-flight matches on the bounce and scoring 11 strikes on that free-scoring run, Vardy should be relishing Norwich’s arrival on Saturday afternoon.

You might be interested to know that Leicester’s attacking MVP can be found pencilled in at 15/8 with Bet365 to bag yet another brace on home soil this weekend.

Norwich – The relegation favourites?

Watching Sheffield United come from behind to snatch a 2-1 win at Carrow Road last weekend, Norwich have failed to build any real momentum since their 2-0 win over Everton last month.

Now hit with back-to-back 2-1 defeats and recording just a single victory since the 14th of September, a huge part of the Canaries’ continued issues since making their top-flight return has come down to some glaring struggles at the back.

Norwich have shipped at least a pair of goals in six of their last seven outings and can be found priced at 1/3 with Paddy Power to suffer a similar fate this weekend.

Unsurprisingly, with only fellow strugglers Watford keeping Farke’s men from slipping back to the foot of the table, Norwich are seen to be a landslide favourite with the bookmakers to be hit with an immediate Championship return.

You might be interested to know that Saturday’s guests are already priced as low as 1/4 with William Hill to finish in the bottom-three come May.
