David Wagner knows if you finish above Leicester City you are going to the Premier League – but Norwich City are ready to rumble in Wednesday’s Championship duel.

The Foxes have won all three away league games, and under Pep Guardiola's former assistant Enzo Maresca, are heavily tipped to bounce back at the first attempt following relegation.

Wagner and his squad go into a Carrow Road showdown two points behind, and the City chief fancies the odds.

“They will get promoted. This is not a secret,” he said, “I even don't know if you can bet on them. Probably not. This is the biggest test we faced in the season. One we are really looking forward to, and where we are excited about, and a game where we aim to be the most uncomfortable opponent Leicester can face - the most uncomfortable evening they face in the season. This is what we will try.

“We need everyone, and if I say everyone, I mean everyone in the stadium, especially in the stands as well. If this is not the case, it's nearly impossible. If it's there, nobody knows in football. And in football, a lot of things can happen. We are excited about this game.

"After this game, it isn't over. It will continue and progress isn't over after six weeks, or eight games. But it is a test and an opponent where everybody knows, and we know as well, don't get me wrong, they are top all over the park. In all departments, top class.

"This is a very good side, a Premier League side. A big, big challenge ahead of us.

“We are really looking forward to it, because it's the first evening game this season at home, which is always special under the floodlights, and can give you another percentage of energy.”

City have been faultless on home turf so far and made it three league wins on the spin with a 1-0 weekend victory over Stoke City.

“This will not be a win we speak a lot about in three years time,” said Wagner. “But it was a win against a Stoke side that have individual quality. This is a team which really can compete for the top end of the table. I'm 100pc sure. And this makes it even more important for us to have done it in front of our home fans again. Great to be back and great to celebrate afterwards.

"Obviously second half we were not as good as we were the first half. But I've always had the feeling if we deliver, they will be there, they will be supportive. I always had that feeling from day one. But obviously we have to deliver. And this is how it should be."
