Premier League – Norwich-Manchester City
The reigning champion of the Premier League Manchester City visits Norwich City at the Carrow Road in a match from the fourth round of the competition. Let’s take a look and see what’s happening with these two teams at the moment.
Because of their draw against Tottenham at home, right now Man City are second in the Premier League standings with 10 points, being on two points behind the leader Liverpool. Except of these two points lost against Spurs, so far Pep Guardiola’s boys are doing really well, being almost perfect in the league.
In the fourth round the Cityzens welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion at the Etihad, enjoying a solid 4-0 win. The champions enjoyed themlseves and at halftime they already had two goals lead, thanks to the strikes of Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero. After the break Kun scored again, while Bernardo Silva scored the fourth.
Right now Guardiola has some problems with injured players in his squad. Aymeric Laporte, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane are all injured, so they are going to miss the game at the Carrow Road. Meanwhile Norwich’s Grant Hanley, Timm Klose and Onel Hernandez are also unavaliable.
Norwich City right now are in the relegation zone of the Premier League, being 19th in the league with 3 points. They have a record of one win and three losses since the start of the league.
In their last match Daniel Farke’s boys travelled to London to face West Ham, losing the game at the London Stadium with 0-2. Norwich tried their best, but West Ham took the win with goals from Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko.
We expect another domination from Manchester City against Norwich City at the Carrow Road. Of course, most likely the home team will fight as much as they can, but at the end Guardiola’s team is much better.
