Norwich 1  City 2

Report by Colin Hall

Goals from Jamie Vardy and Jeff Schlupp proved enough to give Leicester City a 2-1 victory at Norwich and take Claudio Ranieri's side back into the top six of the Premier League.

Following the hiding dished out by Arsenal in the previous fixture, it was little surprise that Ranieri opted to reshuffle his defence for the Carrow Road clash, bringing in Premier debutant Christian Fuchs and replacing Ritchie De Laet with Danny Simpson. However, the demotion of Riyad Mahrez to the bench came as a bombshell, although it was a decision which the afternoon's events would vindicate completely.

The Foxes, perhaps understandably in view of the changes in personnel, looked a little tentative in the opening minutes, and Jerome came close to putting the home side ahead with a shot which narrowly cleared Kasper Schmeichel's crossbar.

But as the midfield duo of Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante began to take a grip on the game, the visitors carved a series of chances for which the final touch just proved elusive.

Eventually, though the breakthrough arrived, as Kante sent Vardy clear on goal, only for the striker to collide with Bassong. Many referees may not have ruled the defender's challenge as unfair, but Mark Clattenburg has ruled in the striker's favour before (remember last season's Manchester United game?) and did so again here. Vardy duly picked himself up to send home keeper Ruddy the wrong way from the spot for his seventh goal of the season.

Football Fans Protest Over Ticket Prices

Fans across the country demonstrated outside Premier League and other matches last weekend (3,4 Oct) to protest at the rise of ticket prices in football.

Recently a study found that England's top matches were the most expensive in the world with an average cost of £53.67 per game. Apparently that is more than double the Bundesliga average.

The Football Supporters' Federation (FSF) mobilised the 2-day “Twenty's Plenty” campaign which focussed on away fans.

As featured on our website last week, at our game the campaign was organised by Norwich fans group BarclayEndProjekt (safe standing campaigners) with the Canaries Trust support. Leicester fans joined the protest  led by Union FS, which was similarly fully backed by the Foxes Trust.

Ynuk.tv spoke to supporters taking action at Chelsea v Southampton match at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal v Manchester United at Arsenal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQ5sIID9jXo
