Leeds vs Norwich Prediction and Odds: Leeds United to Win
Bottom-placed Norwich City will host Leeds United on Sunday in the Premier League at Carrow Road.
The canaries are yet to open their account in the top flight after 9 matches. They have collected just two points with two draws and seven defeats so far and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them to avoid relegation this season.
Leeds United has failed to live up to their expectations and is currently hovering around the relegation zone, They have managed to escape the bottom three as of now but Marcelo Bielsa’s side has struggled to get them going.
Injuries to a number of key players also dealt a major blow to their aspirations and with the players returning to full fitness the Whites will get a major boost.

We as a fanbase need to stop lapping up healthy-looking spreadsheets if we want the club to stop “accepting mediocrity” btw. We shouldn’t be taking pride in “not being Bolton.” Norwich City are a football club and we’re meant to be football fans #NCFC

Tired of Leeds losing these games against big-name clubs. It’s every time I watch em playing these teams. Supporting em knowing it’s gonna be a loss, but still be supporting. If not careful may lose best players Leeds have. Hard work for nowt, hope not.

looking everywhere for the blue away shorts in 9-10 year old. Everywhere we have looked have sold out. We went into the Leeds shop at the white Rose centre to find a pair on a mannequin. They would not take them off so we could buy them. So now have an upset 9 year old.
