Leicester edge to victory at Norwich in Premier League clash

 

Norwich were condemned to a 13th straight Premier League defeat as Leicester secured a 2-1 victory at Carrow Road.

Jamie Vardy’s early strike (8) gave Leicester the perfect start, but Norwich responded on the stroke of half-time, Teemu Pukki making no mistake from the penalty spot after Caglar Soyuncu was adjudged to have fouled Pierre Lees-Melou in the penalty area after a VAR review.

Leicester restored their advantage in the 76th minute through Marc Albrighton, but Norwich, who threw everything at Leicester late in the second half, thought they had grabbed an instant response thanks to Kenny McLean’s header.

However, VAR was once again involved and the goal was ruled out because of a tight offside against Todd Cantwell, who was stood right in front of Kasper Schmeichel as Norwich, who are still waiting for their first points of the season, slipped to a third straight defeat of the season.

Meanwhile, for Brendan Rodgers’ side, it was a good response to their 4-1 defeat at West Ham last Monday. They move up to eighth after a second win of the campaign.
