    Who would be your first inductees into the Premier League Hall of Fame?

    Phil Beck: First two inductees into the Hall of Fame simply have to be Giggs and Shearer. The guy who’s won it more than anyone else and the guy that’s scored more goals than anyone else.

    Khan Karn: Shearer has to be the first, Giggs was a Premier League great due to longevity, he never ever really the best and was never outstanding over a season. Shearer was an incredible goalscorer throughout his whole career. Much more impressive as an individual

    Just been confirmed that it is a calf injury for Jamie Vardy.

    Remember when they were going to make a movie about him? What happened there?

    So no Jamie Vardy then. Not sure why yet but presumably he has picked up an injury.

    The striker was banging in goals for fun at the start of the season, hitting 17 in his first 18 Premier League appearances. However, he’s on quite a significant drought at the moment without a goal in his last nine games.

    “Sometimes you get a wee run like this though,” says Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers earlier this week. “I think when he came back from his injury he was maybe not quite up to speed.

    “But I think you saw against Manchester City the return of that running power and speed. In those types of games you get very few chances anyway.”

    Norwich City

    Norwich make just one change from the side beaten by Wolves but it’s potentially an exciting one as wildcard playmaker Emi Buendia gets a start. Lukas Rupp is the man to make way.

    Leicester go back to a back four but the big news is that Jamie Vardy is not in the squad at all. Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi are both kept on the bench.

    In come Ayoze Perez, Hamza Choudhury and Harvey Barnes.

    Ryan Giggs and Alan Shearer are rumoured to be the first two players inducted in the Premier League Hall of Fame.

    Who do you think should be the first inducted?

    Let us know your thoughts via #bbcfootball and also tune into BBC Radio 5 live from 7pm as Mark Schwarzer and John Ruddy give their verdicts.

  9. Foxes on for top four

    Norwich v Leicester (20:00 GMT)

    Leicester are firmly in the mix for a top four finish but their form has been faltering in recent weeks.

    The Foxes have won just one of their last six Premier League games but despite that are still nine points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.

    Injury to Wilfred Ndidi can’t have helped. Leicester have averaged 2.14 points per game with Ndidi in the side compared to 0.83 without him.

  10. ‘This could be a tale of two strikers’

    Match of the Day commentator

    With 11 matches remaining, time is running out for Norwich to get out of the bottom three and avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

    The Canaries have won just four times in the Premier League, and Leicester will see this match as a great opportunity to put their challenge for a Champions League spot back on track.

    This could be a tale of two strikers: Jamie Vardy has 17 league goals this season but hasn’t scored for the Foxes since Christmas, while Teemu Pukki will be looking to become the first Norwich player to score from open play in the Premier League since New Year’s Day.

  11. Swansong looming for the Canaries?

    Eleven games to go.

    Seven points adrift.

    One win in their last 14.

    These are bleak times for Norwich and time is fast running out in their bid to preserve their Premier League status.

    Could a Friday night fixture with the Foxes spark a late-season revival?
