Norwich vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
The Canaries have not been able to live up to their expectations and have not tasted success in their last three games in a running across various competitions. Despite initially showing promise with their offensive capabilities, Norwich have not been able to put on a match-winning performance since their win against Newcastle.
The hosts were at the losing end in their most recent match on the road against West Ham by a 2-0 scoreline while in the comforts of their home they were edged out by Chelsea with the finals scores reading 3-2 at the last blast of the whistle.
The visitors are on a much more convincing form at the moment and have been picking up the win by no less than a two-goal margin, at the least, in three of their previous four games. Prior to the international break, the squad pulled off a comfortable 4-0 win over Brighton at home as well.
Considering that Manchester City will be making the trip to Carrow Road on the back of an impressive two-match winning streak, a fourth consecutive defeat is certainly staring Norwich in the face.
Norwich vs Manchester City Head to head (h2h)

- The two teams played a stalemate in their last encounter.
- Seven of their previous nine clashes have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
- Both teams have found the back of the net just once in their last five games.
Norwich vs Manchester City Prediction
The 2018/19 Championship winners have not been able to get into their groove and have not picked up any points in their last two Premier League games either.
Furthermore, the squad are up against the reigning champions who have been showing no mercy whatsoever to their opponents. The away side have already racked up fourteen goals to their names, which is the most by any side in the current table, and have conceded no more than three in the process.
It also needs saying that City have been tasting success in four of their last six visits to this stadium and are unbeaten in their last two outings in the league as well.
Given that Guardiola’s men have also been leading at half time in each of their four Premier League games, expect them to run riot over the Canaries and to pick up the win without fail.
Additionally, as previously mentioned, City have been consistent in scoring three goals or more in each of their games so far. Taking into consideration that four of their previous six visits here have also produced over 3.5 goals on the charts, expect a high scoring clash by all means.
Sergio Aguero has found the back of the net in each of City’s last four games in the League. Brave punters can even go for the in-form Argentine to score anytime!
