Most people get to rest easy on the first day of the New Year from a night of celebration. That does not apply to the footballers in the Premier League. In England, a new round of games is simply scheduled for January 1, 2022. On the first day of 2022, Leicester City will play Norwich City at home, kicking off at 16:00. The home team managed to win 1-0 against Liverpool FC just before the turn of the year, while Norwich City went into the new year as the bottom of the table.
Leicester City scores easily
Leicester City is in 9th place in the Premier League with 25 points. The team has a crowded sickbay and will have to miss key players against Norwich City. The club's top scorer Jamie Vardy will most likely not be there, the same goes for James Maddison and Harvey Barnes. This is only a small selection from the list of injured players. Despite the absence of these players, the team still managed to play good soccer. In the EFL Cup they lost to Liverpool only after penalty kicks, but last week the team took revenge by winning 1-0 against the same opponent. In between, the top game against Manchester City ended in 6-3. By the way, to watch live broadcasts and make bets, you should download Mostbet mobile app.

Norwich City is the biggest relegation candidate
