Time is fast running out of Norwich head-coach to ensure him team’s stay in English top flight next season as the team are currently rooted at 18th in the league table. A win here could take them out of the danger zone, but the only team they could catch at the moment is Sunderland. Other relegation threatened teams like Swansea, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace are fairly same at the moment after staying around 9 points clear of Norwich City.

From title contenders to Champions League qualification hopefuls. This was how bad Manchester City’s league campaign stumbled since the beginning of this year. They are fourth in the table, 10 points behind league leaders Leicester City and they face a major threat of dropping off from top four as Manchester United and West Ham stay inside a 3 point gap. Their poor away form and inability to win against top teams in the league put them into this miserable state.

Form Comparison

Norwich City are without a win in their last 9 Premier League matches. During the period they have lost in 8 and drawn against West Ham.

At home, Norwich have failed to win their last four and conceded 2 or more goals in each of them.
Manchester City end their three match losing streak in the league with a 4-0 win over a poor Aston Villa. The Citizens have seen over 2.5 goals in all of the last four league matches.

While playing away, they have won only 5 out of their 13 matches. But there are slight improvements as they have won 2 of their last 5 away matches and the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool was their first in five matches and the first in calendar year 2016.

Norwich City: Team News

Naismith, Brady and Tettey are injured for the Canaries and the return date is still unknown. While Bassong is carrying a knock, but still make to the team sheet on Saturday.

Norwich City: Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1)

Ruddy- Bennet, Klose, Martin, Pinto – Howson, Dorrans, Jarvis, Redmond – Hoolahan – Mbokani.

Manchester City: Team News

Fabian Delph, Kevin De Bruyne and Samir Nasir are sidelined since long-term and could only return by April. The Citizen’s head-coach Manuel Pellegrini has no further injury worries or suspended players. He could field a similar 4-4-2 system he used against Aston Villa in their last match once again.

Manchester City: Predicted line-up (4-4-2)

Hart – Clichy, Kompany, Otamendi, Sagna – Fernandinho, Toure, Silva, Navas – Sterling, Aguero.

Norwich vs Manchester City: Head-to-Head Stats

Since Norwich’s promotion back to Premier League in 2004, the teams have met for 9 times and Manchester City hold a superior record after winning 6 of them. Norwich have only won once while two of the matches end in a draw.
The teams have met recently at Carrow Road in the FA Cup third round, where City run out comfortable winners by 3-0.

Norwich vs Manchester City: Prediction

Manchester City are pretty ordinary on the road, but Norwich City look out of sorts in their recent outings. The head-to-head stats show the authority of Manchester City when coming against Norwich and this could be repeated when they lock horns on Saturday evening.
