Norwich City’s desperate bid for Premier League survival continues when they host Leicester City in the Premier League on Friday evening.
Daniel Farke’s side have won just four of their 27 league outings so far this season and find themselves bottom of the table, seven points from safety.
Leicester, meanwhile, still have their sights set on a top-three finish and Champions League qualification, remaining six points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea despite a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City last time out.
Can the Canaries give themselves hope or will it be back to winning ways for the Foxes? Read on for our preview, predictions, TV coverage information and more.

Ones to watch
Norwich City: Emiliano Buendia
Norwich’s survival hopes are all but extinguished but Argentine playmaker Emiliano Buendia still has time to put himself firmly in the shop window.
The 23-year-old is by far the Canaries’ chief creative force, registering a team-high seven Premier League assists so far this season, while his four assists for Teemu Pukki is the third-most prolific creator-to-goalscorer partnership in the English top-flight.
Buendia will be desperate to put in another top-class performance as he seeks to extend his stay in the Premier League beyond the current campaign.
Key stat: Only Kevin De Bruyne (96) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (73) have created more chances in the Premier League this season than Buendia (70).
Leicester City: Jamie Vardy
Jamie Vardy is without a single goal since mid-December and as a result, he’s finally been caught atop the Premier League Golden Boot standings.
Without his goals, Leicester have become somewhat inconsistent, looking like the early-season world-beaters one moment, then a turgid, lifeless outfit the next.
The Foxes have probably done enough already to secure Champions League football next season, but Brendan Rodgers will want his star striker back on form to make sure. Vardy himself will also be craving that Golden Boot.
Key stat: Vardy is without a goal in his last seven Premier League appearances.

It’s do or die for Norwich as they desperately seek to extend their stay in the Premier League beyond this season. That said, with a seven-point deficit to make up, it’s looking pretty bleak.
Leicester haven’t been as convincing during the second half of the season as they were in the first, and that – coupled with Norwich’s habit of turning up against the top sides – should see this one come out as a draw.
