The Foxes are winless in four matches in all competitions ahead of their trip to Carrow Road, where Norwich have won just once in their last 10 top-flight outings.
There is no doubt that Leicester have gone off the boil over the past seven weeks, with Brendan Rodgers's men winning just two of their last nine league and cup matches.
Despite their disappointing points return, though, the Foxes remain third in the table and are not exactly looking nervously over their shoulder.
Finishing in the top five this season is expected to be enough to earn Champions League qualification and City have a 10-point buffer on Tottenham Hotspur in sixth.
Rodgers does not want the campaign to fizzle out, however, and this trip to Norfolk - quickly followed by an FA Cup last-16 tie with Birmingham City - offers a chance to rebuild some momentum.
Norwich will have other ideas, of course, but their recent results provide little to suggest an upset could be on the cards on Friday.
The Canaries have earned praise for some positive performances, though that only gets you so far in the Premier League.
Following back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers - the latter a 3-0 whimper - the gap on safety is now seven points.
Top scorer Teemu Pukki is no longer scoring freely and it is perhaps not surprising that Norwich have failed to net in their last three matches.
In fact, their last two goals have come via the penalty spot, with Daniel Farke's side not netting from open play since January 1.
Leicester may also be goalless in their last two league matches, but they had failed to score in just two of their previous 24, netting 54 times in that run.
Norwich City's Premier League form: LWLDLL
Norwich City's form (all competitions): WLWDLL
Leicester City's Premier League form: LLWDDL
Leicester City's form (all competitions): WWLDDL
Leicester's disappointing run of form has coincided with the loss of Wilfred Ndidi, but he is back in training and has been given an outside chance of featuring on Friday.
Having scored 17 goals in his first 18 Premier League games this season, Jamie Vardy is without a goal in his last seven games in the competition.
Norwich City's possible starting lineup:
Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis; Tettey, McLean; Buendia, Duda, Cantwell; Pukki
Leicester City's possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Choudhury, Perez, Praet, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
We say: Norwich City 0-2 Leicester City
If Norwich are to pull off a great escape of sorts then they quite simply need to start winning games. Leicester have also struggled for wins of late but offered some encouraging signs in their defeat to Man City, so we are backing them to come out on top in Friday's clash.
