Leicester City has beaten Norwich City by 2-1 in the third week of the 2021/22 Premier League season. Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton scored for Leicester which helps to register their second win of the season. Norwich had their third straight loss after coming back to the Premier League this season. Norwich hasn’t managed to win a single game despite coming close to draw the game against Leicester City on Saturday.
Norwich City’s new signing from Manchester United on loan named Brandon Williams also made his first appearance for the club in the Premier League. But it was his mistake that gave the lead to the away side. Leicester City’s right-back Ricardo Pereira took the ball from Brandon Williams who misplaced the pass and finds Jamie Vardy in the box. The English striker made no mistake and it was a one-goal advantage to the away side in just 8 minutes. After conceding an early goal, Norwich showed their composure and made some attempts on the away side goal. Before half-time, due to a bad tackle by Leicester defender, Soyuncu, Norwich City was been awarded a penalty by VAR. Teemu Pukki was the one who scored from the spot and equalized for Norwich just before the break.

As the game resumes in the second half, Leicester City had more possession on the ball. They took advantage in the 76th minute when Leicester City’s Winger Marc Albrighton scored a stunning goal in the bottom corner of the net. Norwich City did score the equalizer again in the 80th minute by a heading goal but it was ruled out by VAR because Norwich star player, Cantwell was standing in the offside position. It was Leicester City’s first away win of the season after they were lost to West Ham last weekend.
