Leicester City have emerged as the closest contender to Liverpool in the title race, and Brendan Rodgers deserves significant credit for that. The Foxes are on an eight game-winning run, and they will take on second from bottom Norwich City at the King Power Stadium next.

On current form, this should be a cakewalk for the Foxes as they have looked in full flow on the attacking front and they currently have the best defensive record in the league. Rodgers’ men have won their last eight games with an aggregate score of 25-3 and Norwich will face an uphill task to get something out of this game.

Team News: Matty James, who has been away from football for quite some time now with injury issues, is back in training. However, he would need some time to get to full match fitness. Bartosz Kapustka is also working his way back from a knee injury. Both the injured players are on the fringes of the squad and most of the first-teamers are fit and available at the moment.

Leicester City Predicted Lineup vs Norwich City

Formation (4-1-2-1-2)

Defence

Kasper Schmeichel will captain the side and start in between the sticks. His experience in goal remains crucial for the Foxes. Caglar Soyuncu has managed to catch the eye of everyone this season with his composed performances at the back.

The loss of Harry Maguire hasn’t been a big issue for the Foxes and for that, Soyuncu deserves a whole lot of credit for stepping up. Jonny Evans is also a composed figure in defence, and he should partner the Turkish international in the centre back role. Ben Chilwell will likely keep his place at left-back. Ricardo Pereira should start from his usual right-back spot.

Midfield

Wilfred Ndidi will do his nitty-gritty job in the defensive midfield position. Youri Tielemans has taken his game to the next level under Rodgers this season, and he will occupy the central areas from the left. Dennis Praet has managed to impress whenever he has gotten his chances, and he should keep his place.

James Maddison will be up against his former team, and it was at Norwich where he blossomed into a star. He will start in the attacking midfield role.

Attack

Kelechi Iheancho had not been seen as a starting XI player, but he has had a considerable impact in the last two games. The Nigerian is seemingly forming a substantial partnership upfront. Jamie Vardy has scored in eight games in a row, and his presence up top will terrorise the fragile Norwich defence.
