Leicester City will try to recover from their heavy loss at West Ham United on Monday as they continue their Premier League season away from home Norwich City Saturday afternoon.
The Foxes suffered a 4-1 loss to West Ham in their last game, while Norwich lost heavily in the first two league games of the 2021/22 season to Liverpool and Manchester City.
Prediction for this match
Norwich was excellent in the championship last season, but they were reminded of the class jump on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season Daniel Farke‘s side on Carrow Road.
Last weekend, the Canary Islands lost 5-0 to champions Manchester City and the club now has to compete against another of the teams that want to be at the top of the league in May.
However, Farke’s team will enter this game with a positive result after beating Bournemouth 6-0 in the second round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.
Norwich will know that their home form will be crucial to staying in the top division this season and they will be careful not to get another bad result this weekend before their next international break at the Emirates Stadium to suffer against Arsenal.
The Canaries are currently bottom of the league table in terms of goal difference but Farke won’t be too worried at this point as the games are getting easier after an incredibly difficult start.
Leicester, meanwhile, got off to a positive start in the 2021/22 season, beating Manchester City 1-0 in the Community Shield before beating Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League with the same result.
However, the Foxes were at the wrong end of a 4-1 result against West Ham on Monday night Ayoze Perez The FA Cup winner was sent off on a difficult evening.
Leicester will have ambitions to finish in the top four this season but it remains to be seen if the squad is strong enough to go all the way. The fight on Saturday is even more important when you consider that the next game after the international break is at home against champions Man City.

Norwich will likely be back without the services of. be Przemyslaw Placheta, Sam Byram and Onel Hernandez for the clash with the FA Cup winners this weekend.
Canary Islands boss Farke is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack from the Man City loss, although a number of fringe players’ performances against Bournemouth would have caught the head coach’s attention.
Kenny McLean was able to hold his place while during an impressive performance Brandon Williams, who was on loan from Manchester United, is said to be a left-back.
Joshua Sargent scored a brace against Bournemouth but could be back on the bench Teemu Pukki, Milot Rashica and Todd Cantwell as featuring the front three.
As for Leicester, Perez will be suspended for his red card against West Ham while Nampalys Mendy, Wesley Fofana, James Justin, Jonny Evans and Jannik Vestergaard are all unavailable.
It could be a Premier League debut for Ryan BertrandHowever, the left-back recently had to pause because of a positive coronavirus test.
Rodgers might consider moving to the top for this game, with Kelechi Iheanacho possibly come alongside Jamie Vardy, although Patson Daka also pushes for a place in the first XI.

Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; McLean, Gilmour, Rupp; Cantwell, Pukki, Rashica

Flattery; Pereira, Amartey, Soyuncu, Thomas; Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison; Barnes; Vardy, Iheanacho
