Norwich looked dead and buried at the bottom of the table but seven points from their last three games has put them right back in the safety battle. If you extend out into the FA Cup then the Canaries are unbeaten in four and have lost just one of their last six. Each of their last seven have gone under 3.5 goals and their last hammering was Boxing Day when an injury and covid hit team took on Arsenal. Dean Smith has got his side organised and this might not be the massacre that some expect.
At Carrow Road, the Canaries have taken four points from their last two but have lost all their home games with top six opponents. In none of their last five and just one of their last seven have the East Anglian outfit kept a home clean sheet. Norwich have started games on fire at home of late netting three times in the opening 20 minutes of their last two home fixtures. Four of the last six visitors to this ground have failed to net in the opening 45 minutes.
Man City are now 14 games unbeaten in the Premier League winning an incredible 13 of these fixtures. Ahead of Liverpool playing on Thursday their lead at the top of the table was 12 points. After hitting 17 goals in a three-game spell around Christmas they are now easing out victories with each of their last five going under 3.5 goals. Kevin de Bruyne has two goals in his last three while Riyad Mahrez has two in his last four.
On the road, City are unbeaten in the Premier League since August 15th and have won nine of their last 11. Mahrez enjoys a road game with two in his last four on his travels while Sterling has two in his last five. Pep and his men have actually conceded first in each of their last two on their travels. Under 3.5 goals and a Man City victory would have paid in four of their last seven away fixtures.
Norwich vs Man City: Match Stats
Manchester City should win this one but finding some better value looks a better solution than taking them outright. Livescorebet have a nice multiple that pays at evens in which if City win, the game has over 2.5 goals and over nine corners. That looks a great way into this fixture.
Brandon Williams has been booked in the last two Norwich fixtures and he looks value to be shown a card here again. The loanee from Man United will be keen to impress against their local rivals City. Throw in the fact he has to deal with the threat of the City pacey wide men and backing him to be carded is a solid play.
