It’s a big game for...

Riyad Mahrez: Leicester’s Algerian winger had a blistering start to the season, scoring five goals as Claudio Ranieri’s side surged towards the top four. But two indifferent performances against West Ham in the Capital One Cup and Arsenal have led to question marks over his form. A big performance from Mahrez in Norfolk would prove the doubters wrong and show the rest of the Premier League that Leicester will not simply ease off.

Best stat…

196: Leicester have not lost away from home since going down 4-3 to Spurs in March - no away defeats in 196 days.

Remember when…

David Nugent’s winner sent Championship Leicester into the last eight of the FA Cup at Carrow Road?

Player to watch…

Nathan Redmond – The Canaries winger has lit up the Premier League since coming up with surprise package Norwich. The former Birmingham man is Alex Neil’s sides’ joint top scorer this season and Leicester must be wary of the England Under 21 international’s pace and unpredictability on the ball.

Jamie Vardy – The Premier League’s top scorer is in great form, scoring four goals in his last three league games.  The England forward has struck fear into top-flight defences and Norwich’s back-line will know they are in for a long afternoon with the former-Fleetwood man around.
