  13. Post update

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Norwich win a corner, their 13th of the match. Can they make it count?

    Jamie Vardy limps back on. He's not going to chase too many more balls on this evidence.

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Norwich substitute Diermerci Mbokani (right) has made more touches in the box than Cameron Jerome (left) since coming on, adding to the host's goal-threat.

    Jamie Vardy receives treatment

    It looks like Jamie Vardy twisted his knee while landing there. The Leicester fans looks concerned and so they should. It seems like a nasty one. He's playing with broken bones in his hand and now his leg needs taping up.

  17. Post update

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy still working hard, but tumbles to the ground while chasing a long ball. He looks in big trouble. They have no subs left.

    Last throw of the dice from Alex Neil.

    Former England defender on Final Score

    "Ruddy was in no man's land when he came out to get the ball, I think Norwich are lucky that goal was disallowed and get the free-kick."

  23. Post update

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Leicester looked comfortable at 2-0 up, but are now on the ropes. Can Norwich capitalise and bag an equaliser?

  24. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Leonardo Ulloa

    Leonardo Ulloa heads in, but the goal is disallowed for his push on Cameron Jerome. Great decision from referee Mark Clattenburg.

    This game has come alive.

  25. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 1-2 Leicester

    Claudio Ranieri reponds by taking off striker Shinji Okazaki and bringing on Leonardo Ulloa.

    Diermerci Mbokani (68 mins)

    Dieumerci Mbokani celebrates

    Game on!

    The home side have been excellent since the second goal and get their reward.

    Substitute Dieumerci Mbokani has been the difference and he is on hand at the back post to finish Jonny Howson's inswinging cross.

  27. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Nathan Redmond with some smart work to win the ball back before clipping a cross into the box towards Dieumerci Mbokani, whose powerful header comes back off the crossbar.

    Another corner for Norwich, which is whipped in by Robbie Brady, but Danny Drinkwater heads away. Two Manchester United men combining for opposing sides.

    Leicester defender Danny Simpson goes off, while Yohan Benalouane comes on.

    Robert Huth goes in the book for bringing down a Norwich man.

  31. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Leicester have a lovely mix of players in their side. Hardworking up front, tough in central defence with speedy wingers.

    They're on the back foot now, but Norwich are not clinical up top.

  32. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Dieumerci Mbokani is involved straight away, connecting with a corner and but his header hits Wes Morgan on the head.

    Appeals for a penalty for handball, but it wasn't. Norwich fans begging for something to go in their favour.

  33. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Another Norwich change. Matt Jarvis goes off and towering striker Diermerci Mbokani comes on. 

    Can he make the difference?

  34. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Norwich have responded well to letting in the second goal, but can they get on the scoresheet?

    Not yet, as the Leicester defence are working hard to repel the Norwich attack. Then they have Kasper Schmeichel to get past.

  35. Schlupp, there it is!

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Let's have a quick look at that second goal.

    It was a great break from Leicester. Jeffrey Schlupp adding the coolness at just the right time.

  36. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Leicester owner Vichai Raksriaksorn looks on sternly from the stands, but he'll be delighted inside. His side have started this season in super fashion and are currently holding a Champions League spot.

  37. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Norwich cranking it up now. Matt Jarvis's inswinging cross is towards striker Cameron Jerome, who looks like he is held down, but nothing given from ref Mark Clattenburg.

    Alex Neil mixing it up now. Defensive-minded Graham Dorrans goes off, attacking Nathan Redmond comes on. Can he make the difference? He did against West Ham last week.

  39. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Clear difference in approach by the two teams in the first half if the average positions are anything to go by. Norwich preferring width (shown on left), Leicester opting to be compact and it seems to be working for them.

  40. GOAL - Norwich 0-2 Leicester

    Jeffrey Schlupp (47 mins)

    Jeffrey Schlupp celebrates

    Counter, goal!

    They thought were going to bag at one end, but end up conceding at the other.

    Leicester win the ball back and break forward. N'Golo Kante feeds a nice throughball to Jeffrey Schlupp, who takes his time inside the area before drilling a low finish under John Ruddy.

    Leicester in control.

  41. CLOSE!

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Norwich nearly got their help!!

    A cross into the box is headed towards his own goal by defender Christian Fuchs, but thankfully for Leicester, it lands on the top of the net.

    Almost the dream second half start for the home side.

  42. Post update

    Team are back out. Sebastien Bassong in deep prayer. Norwich need help from somewhere.

    Back under way at Carrow Road.

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Norwich really need some inspiration to get back into this contest. They've dominated possession but are behind on the scoreboard.

    It might not seem like it but the outcome of this match does pale into insignificance in comparison with other issues.

    With that in mind, Norwich are donating £1 from every match ticket sold to the Child Refugee Crisis Appeal, will hold a crowd collection and, furthermore, will hand over £1 from the sale of selected merchandise. 

    Whatever is raised will be matched by club sponsors Aviva, up to a maximum of £10,000.

  45. HALF-TIME

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester lead thanks to Jamie Vardy's penalty.

    Carrow Road very, very quiet.

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    The home faithful at Carrow Road are very quiet. That's because their team haven't given them much to shout about.

    Will Alex Neil shake it up at half time? He needs to do something to give his side more potency in the final third.

    Further excellent work from Jamie Vardy, who chases again before putting a dangerous cross into the box which Alex Tettey clears.

  49. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    A long punt up field sees the ball bounce in the Norwich penalty area, which John Ruddy comes to meet after initially hesitating.

    Shinji Okazaki gets to it first and heads the ball on, before being taken out by Ruddy, but Mark Clattenburg only points for a goal kick.

    Could easily have been a second penalty.

  50. Post update

    Richard Winton

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    Norwich's left flank of Robbie Brady, Matt Jarvis and Wes Hoolahan have been feted in games this term, but it is down the right with Steven Whittaker and Jonny Howson that the hosts are funneling many of their attacks.

  51. CLOSE!

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Robert Huth heads away a dangerous cross into the box from under his own crossbar. That was going into the top corner, but alert defending from the German.

  52. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Norwich continue their patient style of play, happy to pass the ball around and work an opening.

    Leicester's defence has too firm so far, with Robert Huth and Wes Morgan looking dominant.

    Cameron Jerome reacts

    The hosts have been utterly impotent in the final third, despite all their pleasing play. Cameron Jerome is isolated and is like a little boy scrapping with the hulking Robert Huth and Wes Morgan.

  54. Post update

    Nathan Redmond strips his tracksuit off and is ready to come on, but Wes Hoolanhan says, 'hold on, I can play on here'.

    Redmond sits back down again and puts his zipped jacket back on. Got some good up-down exercise done there.

    It was a clumsy concession by Sebastien Bassong, marking the culmination of a spell in which Norwich looked lax defensively. And scorer Jamie Vardy has now scored in five consecutive games for the first time since arriving at Leicester from non-league Fleetwood in 2012.

  57. Post update

    Leicester on top now, and like a zombie in The Walking Dead, they can smell blood.

    Can they take complete control of this game and get a second?

  59. CLOSE!

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Nearly a second!

    Marc Albrighton's fizzes ball in the corridor of uncertainty, in between the goalkeeper and defence, but Jeffrey Schlupp can't stretch enough to get a toe on the ball.

    Think Gazza against Germany at Euro '96.

  60. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Leicester

    Regarding the penalty, the Norwich fans are not happy but it is really clumsy defending from Sebastien Bassong. 

    Jamie Vardy makes a run across the Norwich defender, who is slow to react and clips the England man.

    Sebastien Bassong brings down Jamie Vardy and Mark Clattenburg points to the spot!!

  63. GREAT SAVE!

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    John Ruddy is looking to get back into the England team and he shows just why. A ball from the left goes right across the box to Danny Drinkwater at the back post, who looks like slotting in but Ruddy with some cat-like reflexes blocks the ball.

  64. Post update

    Great block Russell Martin! Captain setting the example for Norwich.

    Jeffrey Schlupp with some neat footwork to get into the box, but his low shot is well stopped by Martin.

    Leicester getting back into this game now, spreading the play from one flank to the other.

    Marc Albrighton find Shinji Okazaki again, but the Japan international's header is over the bar. 

    He was offside anyway.

  66. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Leicester break away for the first time, as N'Golo Kante long ball forward is chased down by the willing Jamie Vardy, who nicks the ball past Steven Whittaker.

    The England striker attempts a cheeky finish through the legs of John Ruddy at the front post, but the Norwich keeper is wise to it and saves with his legs.

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Norwich boss Alex Neil seems a little agitated in his technical area, not sure why. His team are doing well so far, despite not making a breakthrough.

    They've been on top in this game, but Leicester seem happy to sit back and let them play in front of them. That's comfortable to defend against.

    Leicester centre-back Wes Morgan has just backheeled the ball into his own box. I've played for coaches who would have substituted him immediately for that...

  70. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Good football from Norwich, knocking the ball around nicely, including towards goalkeeper John Ruddy who passes it out rather than knocking it long. 

    Leicester holding firm at the back though, keeping their shape and not allowing their opponents to slide a ball through.

  71. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Graham Dorrans screams at team-mate Alex Tettey who gives the ball away in a dangerous area. It looks like the Ghanaian lost his bearings a little after that fall. No damage done though, as Norwich win the ball back.

    Both teams just sizing each other up so far, not exactly committing men forward at this stage.

    In the lead up to that chance, Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey slipped over and landed awkwardly on his shoulder. He receives some treatment but is back on the pitch for now.

  75. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Shinji Okazaki involved again, pealing away from the attention of Sebastien Bassong, before flicking a header narrowly over the bar. The cross from Marc Albrighton was a little behind him, so the Japanese striker couldn't quite arc his body enough to head the ball down.

  76. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Don't see the 4-4-2 too much these days, but Leicester have two strikers up front who are very hardworking. Both Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki work their socks off for the 90 minutes and they are doing just that so far.

    Norwich looking get some control by passing the ball around on the deck. Patient stuff.

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    Interesting midfield for Norwich, with Alexander Tettey and Graham Dorrans sitting, Wes Hoolahan is playing off Cameron Jerome with Jonny Howson and Matt Jarvis on either side.

    Leicester have gone for a more orthodox 4-4-2.

  78. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    First chance of the game falls to Norwich. It is a beautifully crafted move with Matt Jarvis and Wes Hoolahan both involved with some quick passing on the edge of the area.

    Striekr Cameron Jerome's run into the box is found by his team-mate, but he lashed the shot over the bar. More composure and that could have been the opener.

  79. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Leicester

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has begun the game in typical dogged fashion, chasing a ball over the top which the Norwich defenders have to deal with. Broken bones in his right hand means he plays this game with a cast on.

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC Match of the Day commentator at Carrow Road

    Jamie Vardy

    "Anything could happen in this one! Norwich are unbeaten in four games in all competitions and have played some lovely football at times this season.

    "Nathan Redmond is on fire and Wes Hoolahan at last has a manager who fully believes in his creativity.

    "Leicester were run ragged by Arsenal but their best performances all campaign have come away, where Riyad Mahrez can break with such speed to link up with Jamie Vardy, who is one of the hardest-working players anywhere this season.

    "If Vardy scores, it'll mark his best ever run in league football. His contest with the in-form Russell Martin could decide the outcome."

  83. Post update

    Norwich v Leicester (15:00 BST)

    Riyad Mahrez is sat on the bench and does not look amused. Who can blame him after his spectacular start to the season. Is it a wise move from boss Claudio Ranieri, or will it back fire?

    Plenty murmurs of surprise at Carrow Road when the team sheets arrived and it became apparent that Riyad Mahrez had been left on the bench by Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri.

    There have been no suggestions of an injury, which makes leaving out their most influential performer in the opening weeks a bold call.
