League leading Leicester City look to move clear of the chasing pack on Saturday when they host Norwich City at the King Power Stadium. Leicester have been a revelation for the league this season, two points clear and unlucky not to be further clear the Foxes have a chance to go five clear on Saturday and they will need to take this opportunities. Ranieri will look to his star men Vardy and Mahrez to get the goals here, this is a classic let down spot for a team like Leicester. I would say before Christmas there was no pressure on Leicester they were ahead but were expected to fall away, they havent but are now expected to win games like this one and Norwich wont roll over. Okazaki is a key man for Leicester while he doesnt present an absolute goal threat his work rate is phenomenal and he will be key on the run in if Leicester are to continue this fairytale.
While Leicester are looking to win a title Norwich City are just looking to stay in the Premier League, the Canaries have been on a terrible run and have lost six of their last seven. To be honest Norwich look like a team that have lost their belief, Norwich have just struggled defensively and even in games where they lead by two goals they dont look safe. Robbie Brady, Wes Hoolohan, Naismith and Mbokani will represent the attacking options here but more than likely Norwich will go with a 4-5-1 here and try not to be beaten,playing on the counter attack against Leicester is tough a they themselves are a pure counter attacking side.
I'm backing Leicester City to give this title a good rattle so I have to take them here, I do think Vardy and Mahrez will rip into Norwich's swiss cheese defence and the Foxes will be sitting five points clear come the end of this game.
