Premier League: Leicester v Norwich

Leicester are unbeaten in all three of their Premier League home games against Norwich (W2 D1), though these games have seen just four goals scored in total (2x 1-0 wins, 1x 1-1 draw).

Norwich lost the reverse fixture against Leicester 2-1 back in August – only in one of the last seven campaigns in which the sides have met have the Canaries lost both league games against the Foxes (2015-16).

Leicester are winless in five Premier League games (D2 L3), losing each of the last two. The Foxes haven’t lost three in a row since February 2019, and Claude Puel’s final three games in charge of the club.

Norwich haven’t won any of their 15 away Premier League matches this season against sides in the division the previous year (D3 L12); their two away wins this season have come at Brentford and Watford, both of whom were promoted alongside the Canaries in 2020-21.

Leicester have both scored and conceded in a league-high 23 different Premier League games this season, with the Foxes only doing so more in 1994-95 (25) and 2017-18 (24).

Leicester have conceded a league-high 15 Premier League goals from corners this season. Since 2006-07 (when Opta has full data for goal-type), only two clubs have ever conceded more in a single campaign – Watford in 2016-17 and Brighton in 2017-18 (both 16).

Coming into the midweek matches, Norwich have conceded a league-high 75 Premier League goals this season. Only in 2004-05 (77) have the Canaries ever shipped more in a single top-flight campaign.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has been involved in 21 goals in his last 14 Premier League appearances against promoted sides, scoring 14 and assisting a further seven. Vardy has registered more than one goal involvement in eight of these 14 games and has only failed to score or assist a goal twice.

Norwich manager Dean Smith has lost three of his four Premier League meetings with Leicester, though that one win did come at the King Power Stadium (1-0 in October 2020 with Aston Villa).

All five of Patson Daka’s Premier League goals for Leicester have come at the King Power Stadium, four of which have come in starts. Only Jamie Vardy (6) has netted more often at home for the club in the top-flight in 2021-22
