Norwich vs Manchester City
Carrow Road
6:30pm

David and Goliath? That’s what it is on paper but no one would forget how Teemu Pukki and Co did Manchester City dirty two seasons ago on this same pitch, the manager then was a certain Daniel Falke who has since been relieved of his duties at Norwich City.

Manchester City are certainly the favorites for the title this season but it’s not over yet, nine points clear but Liverpool have a game in hand and if the Kops win that, they will cut the leaders’ advantage to just six points, in football you know that isn’t insurmountable.

Norwich City were down and under, everyone prepared them for a trip back to where they came from, not a single pundit gave them a chance to survive the premier league this season and you won’t blame them, the Canaries have been poor.

But Falke was fired and another fired manager was hired, Dean Smith was trusted with the ship, himself having been relieved of his job at Aston Villa, you look back at everything since he assumed the reigns at Norwich and you won’t be mistaken to applaud the decision to release the German.

On paper, this is City’s game to lose and in fact it’s not a question of if they will win, rather it’s a question of by how many goals? City beat Brentford without really breaking a sweat Norwich shouldn’t trouble them a lot.

Norwich didn’t win the last time out, but they earned a point that would encourage them although it was from a winning position against Crystal Palace. They jumped out of the bottom three for the first time few weeks ago but Newcastle’s win in midweek over Everton returned them to the red zone.

A win would see Norwich up to 16th on the log this season, they haven’t achieved that at all as they have been in the drop zone all season long, a point won’t improve their log standings but it will give them huge confidence for the battle ahead.

The Citizens have Champions League in their sights but they can’t lose focus of domestic priorities. Winning is one thing, doing it consistently is what makes you a champion and a win here would take City 12 points above Liverpool, at least till the Kops play.

The record books aren’t in favor of Norwich but the fact that it’s not completely impossible will give Smith and his lads hope, they won’t see lots of the ball and will have to take their chances when they do come, it’s going to be a long night by the way.

Verdict: Manchester City to win
