Norwich have one final chance as another free-kick is awarded in their favour. Schmeichel commands his area brilliantly to come out and collect, though, and the referee swiftly blows the final whistle.
CHANCE! Norwich are awarded a free-kick near the far touchline that is whipped in by Redmond. Leicester do not clear properly but, much to their relief, Bamford's shot is wide of the target.
Dieumerci Mbokani enters the game and replaces T. Klose.
P. Bamford enters the game and replaces C. Jerome.
Dieumerci Mbokani is thrown on in place of Klose as Norwich search for a dramatic equaliser.
Patrick Bamford is also thrown into the mix by Neil with Jerome making way.
We are into the first of four minutes of stoppage time at the end of this game. Can Leicester hold on for a huge victory or can Norwich salvage what would be a deserved point?
L. Ulloa has scored a goal for Leicester City! Assist by J. Vardy.
LEICESTER HAVE DONE IT!!! With one minute remaining on the clock, Ulloa gives his side the breakthrough! Mahrez lays the ball into the path of Albrighton, whose cross fizzes through the area and is finished at the back post by the substitute. Goals like that win you league titles!
Albrighton provided another inviting cross that was helped on by Vardy, before being tucked away by Ulloa.
Vardy shows great tenacity to win the ball back and set up an attack for Leicester. They have bodies in the area waiting for Albrighton' cross, but Norwich are equal to it once again.
We are into the last five minutes and it is looking increasingly like Norwich will hold on for a well-earned point. They will not be counting their chickens just yet, though, as Leicester continue to search for a winner.
GREAT EFFORT! Some space opens up for Redmond to try his luck from 25 yards. There is plenty of power behind his effort, but it is just wide of the target with Schmeichel beaten.
M. Jarvis enters the game and replaces S. Naismith.
Norwich make their first change of the day as Naismith is replaced by Matt Jarvis.
Leicester will have been livid had that led to a goal, but Brady's dangerous delivery is well punched away by Schmeichel.
POOR DECISION! Redmond embarks on a strong surge down the right flank and jumps over the challenge of Fuchs. Despite the Norwich winger now showing any sign of an appeal, the referee blows for a free-kick to the visitors.
As we enter the final 10 minutes at the King Power Stadium, can Norwich hang on or will Leicester finally get the decisive breakthrough?
L. Ulloa enters the game and replaces D. Amartey.
The last throw of the dice from Ranieri sees him introduce Leonardo Ulloa into the action. Amartey is the player sacrificed following a solid debut.
Schlupp has provided a good threat down the left flank since his introduction. He gets in behind Pinto before delivering a decent cross, but Vardy is unable to direct his headers towards goal and the ball goes behind for a goal kick.
There is nothing wrong with Leicester's build-up play, but just one stray pass is seeing all their hard work count for nothing at the moment. They do not need to overcomplicate things as they chase a winning goal.
That was very disappointing for the hosts. The home fans roar in anticipation as Norwich concede a corner, only for Fuchs to send the subsequent delivery straight out for a goal kick.
Leicester need to get more men in the box when attacking. Albrighton does well down the right flank before delivering an inviting cross, but an unchallenged Ruddy is able to come out and collect.
A. King enters the game and replaces N. Kanté.
A further change sees Kante make way for Andy King. Can the substitutions inspire the hosts in the final 20 minutes.
J. Schlupp enters the game and replaces S. Okazaki.
Ranieri makes his first change of the afternoon and introduces Jeffrey Schlupp, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture, as Okazaki makes way.
GOOD SAVE! Leicester launch a counter attack as they look to catch their opponents out. The ball eventually falls kindly for Albrighton, whose effort is on target but easily gathered by Ruddy.
There are no easy games in the Premier League nowadays, but Leicester will feel that they should be picking up three points against teams lower in the table. They need to keep asking questions of Norwich if they are to find the breakthrough.
Mahrez continues to try and make something happen for his side. He twists and turns against his marker down the right flank, but a loose touch sees him miscontrol and send the ball behind for a goal kick.
Leicester are starting to ask a lot more questions going forward. Fuchs and Kante combine neatly down the left flank before Brady is forced to head the former's cross behind for a corner. Norwich deal with the subsequent delivery, but can they weather the storm?
Mahrez is starting to find pockets of space in front of the Norwich back four. He needs to keep doing that as he is the player most likely to breach the visitors' back line.
Drinkwater lays the ball off for Vardy to unleash a fierce low drive on goal. Ruddy gets down well, however, to smother the attempt. It has taken Leicester 58 minutes to test the Norwich keeper.
That is more like it from Mahrez! The winger weaves in and out of a couple of challenges before he is tripped just outside the penalty area. Leicester are yet to register a shot on target so far, but will be hoping to change that from this set-piece.
Vardy chases a long ball over the top of the Norwich defence on what has been a quiet afternoon by his standards. Ruddy is alert, however, and quickly out of goal to clear the danger.
Mahrez has endured a very disappointing afternoon so far. He is giving the ball away far too cheaply and the trademark creativity that has made him one of the stand-out players of the season has been severely lacking.
R. Bennett gets yellow.
Bennett is the next player to have his name taken by the referee for a late challenge on Vardy.
That sums Leicester up so far today. Albrighton's delivery into the box is an inviting one, but nobody can get on the end of it for the hosts and the ball goes behind for a goal kick.
S. Naismith gets yellow.
Naismith receives the first yellow card of the afternoon for bringing down Mahrez. This is a good opportunity for the hosts to hit the front.
KICK-OFF! Mr Swarbrick blows his whistle and the second half is underway at the King Power Stadium.
The referee blows his whistle and brings the first half to a close.
Brady pulls the strings as Norwich embark upon yet another counter attack. He lays the ball off for Jerome on the edge of the area, but Morgan throws himself in the way of the striker's subsequent shot.
GOOD STRIKE! Some space opens for Redmond and he unleashes a fierce low drive from a tight angle and Schmeichel has to get down quickly to turn it away to safety.
Norwich do not look too affected by Jerome's miss. They are still applying the pressure on their opponents high up the field and now allowing them to gain a foothold in the contest. Ranieri will be keen for the half-time whistle now.
How crucial could that miss prove to be? Against the likes of Leicester, you simply have to take your chances. The hosts will look to use that to spark themselves into life.
WHAT A MISS! Norwich continue to threaten on the counter attack and Leicester concede a corner. Brady's subsequent delivery is attacked by Jerome, who somehow sends his header wide from inside the six-yard box.
Ranieri is looking a little restless on the touchline and you cannot really blame him. He observed that his side's next five games would be crucial, but they are yet to really hit their top form so far today.
At the other end, Brady sends a deep ball into the box which is nodded down by Jerome looking for Redmond. Leicester are alert to the danger once again, however, and are able to clear.
NOT FAR AWAY! Albrighton whips in a delicious delivery that is simply begging to be attacked. Huth is inches away from connecting and the ball drifts just wide of the far post.
Mr Swarbrick awards Leicester a free-kick after Howson brings down Okazaki on the left corner of the penalty box. This is a very good position for the hosts and their first real opportunity to test Ruddy.
Norwich are looking very dangerous on the counter attack at the moment. Jerome looks to cushion a cross into the path of Naismith, but Leicester just about recover the situation to clear the danger.
They have been very quiet so far by their standards, but Vardy and Mahrez almost combine to deadly effect. The winger turns his marker inside out, but Norwich get bodies back to make a good block from his subsequent shot on goal.
Norwich have had a couple of opportunities to get in behind the Leicester defence in the space of a minute. Their build-up play has been nice, but the final ball has let them down on both occasions.
The visitors enjoy a rare venture forward and some space opens up for Tettey to try his luck. It is nowhere near troubling Schmeichel, however, and Naismith shows his frustration at his teammate's decision.
Norwich have won just one of their last 12 away games in the Premier League - losing nine - but they can be pleased with their performance so far today. They knew they would have their work cut out, but are equipping themselves well.
Leicester are taking the opportunity to just slow the pace of play and gain the upper hand in the contest. With Norwich continuing to hold firm, they need to be a bit more creative in and around the penalty area.
A deep corner reaches the far post and is met by Bennett. He gets under the ball too much, though, and sends it looping high over the bar.
Norwich have forced a corner following a quick counter attack. These are the kind of opportunities that they need to make their most of, as Leicester can quickly flick the switch at any time.
ALMOST AN OWN GOAL! Leicester are slowly starting to turn the pressure on their opponents. Martin is forced to make a vital interception from a low ball into the box. Much to his relief, it goes narrowly wide of the post.
DANGER! Leicester patiently build up the play with Okazaki laying the ball out wide for Vardy. The England international drills the ball across the area for his strike partner, but a solid defensive block prevents an almost certain goal.
Norwich have put up a very stubborn front inside the opening 11 minutes. Leicester are enjoying most of the possession, but they are not finding it easy to break down the visitors at the moment.
Norwich launch a quickfire counter attack with Redmond leading the charge. He lays the ball into the path of Jerome, but Schmeichel is quickly out of goal to collect.
Pinto leaves his mark on Albrighton with a late challenge. The referee has a quiet word with the right-back, although replays show that the Leicester winger did make the most of it.
Amartey is getting himself involved early on. He is making some good runs forward from right-back and supporting his side's attacks. It has been a fairly quiet start to proceedings in all fairness, though.
The King Power Stadium is in good voice as the home fans look to roar their team on. Norwich have held their own in the opening exchanges, closing their opponents down quickly and not allowing them to settle into their rhythm.
KICK-OFF! Mr Swarbrick blows his whistle and gets the match underway.
Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE text commentary of the Premier League. We're at the King Power Stadium today as league leaders Leicester City entertain Norwich City.
The next step in Leicester's title bid sees them face relegation-threatened Norwich. The Foxes are looking to bounce back from their stoppage-time defeat at Arsenal last time out, while Norwich are searching for just their second win of 2016.
New signing Daniel Amartey makes his debut for the Foxes in the only change from the defeat at Arsenal, as he comes in at right-back for the suspended Danny Simpson. Jeffrey Schlupp, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture at Carrow Road in October, returns from injury and takes his place on the bench.
Norwich may have thrown away a 2-0 lead against West Ham United two weeks ago, but the draw ended a run of five straight defeats. Alex Neil makes three changes from that game with Ivo Pinto and Ryan Bennett coming into defence, while Alexander Tettey replaces Gary O'Neil in the heart of midfield. Sebastien Bassong and Wes Hoolahan are the other players to make way.
NORWICH (4-4-1-1): Ruddy; Ivo Pinto, Martin (c), Klose, Bennett; Redmond, Tettey, Howson, Brady; Naismith; Jerome.
HERE THEY COME! The players are making their way out onto the field and kick-off is just moments away. Neil Swarbrick is our referee this afternoon. The Preston official sent off Gary O'Neil in Norwich's 3-1 defeat at Stoke - his last appointment involving the Canaries.
HALF-TIME: LEICESTER 0-0 NORWICH
Neil will be the happier of the two sides going in at the break. His side have held their own really well in the first half, maintaining high levels of pressure on their opponents. They will be hoping they do not rue that missed header from Jerome, however.
Ranieri will be looking to rally and encourage his players to start performing to the levels that have seen them rise to the summit of the Premier League. They have looked very ordinary so far this afternoon in all fairness.
The players are making their way back out onto the pitch for the second half. Will Leicester's superiority eventually prevail or will Norwich's survival instincts prove too strong?
FULL TIME: LEICESTER CITY 1-0 NORWICH CITY
Leonardo Ulloa was the hero as Leicester left it late before claiming a huge three points at the King Power Stadium. Norwich held their own brilliantly but were finally breached by the substitute, who tucked away what could prove to be a hugely significant goal in his side's title challenge.
That's all from the King Power Stadium following a dramatic climax in the East Midlands. Thank you for following the LIVE action of the Barclays Premier League - hope you've enjoyed it. Until next time, have a very good evening!
