Norwich already know they will be playing Championship football next season, but pride is still at stake for the Canaries as they still remain level with their final 2019/20 points tally.

Although Dean Smith's team come into this midweek game on a four-game losing streak, they face a Leicester side limping towards the end of the season without a win in seven in all competitions.

Here's a look at how Smith's team could line up.

Norwich predicted lineup vs Leicester (4-2-3-1)

GK: Tim Krul - Successive clean sheets against Brighton and Burnley in April feel a long time ago now, especially after conceding 12 in the last four games since.

RB: Max Aarons - Chances are he could be off in the summer if a decent offer comes in, although transfer talk around him has been much cooler this season.

CB: Sam Byram - Has been favoured at centre-back for the last two games, even with Ben Gibson available on the bench.

CB: Grant Hanley - Will return to being one of the best centre-backs in the league when he is back playing in the second tier.

LB: Dimitris Giannoulis - Brandon Williams could be protected from the spotlight after clashing with Norwich fans in the wake of facing West Ham.

CM: Lukas Rupp - Mathias Normann is still sidelined after suffering a thigh injury ahead of facing West Ham at the weekend.

CM: Billy Gilmour - A lack of consistent chances has denied the Scot the breakthrough season that was hoped for off the back of Euro 2020.

RM: Kieran Dowell - Has been a regular starter since early April after spending most of the season on the bench before then. His only goal and assist came against Manchester United recently.

AM: Pierre Lees-Melou - Norwich don't really have better options, but the Frenchman has been pushed forward as the team's 'number 10' in the last few weeks.

LM: Milot Rashica - Norwich are thought to be expecting transfer interest in the winger ahead of next season after an impressive campaign.

ST: Teemu Pukki - Needs one more goal to match his 2019/20 Premier League tally. The Finn has 10 to his name in the league so far.
