The Football Manc Cave is taking a closer look at Man City and Norwich as they face each other this weekend.
Currently, Man City sit 2nd in the league on 10 points. Norwich is 19th on 3 points. On paper, City should easily have this in the bag. They’ve recently beat Brighton 4-0, Bournemouth 3-1 and drawn with Tottenham 2-2. Norwich, on the other hand, has lost 2-0 to West Ham and lost 3-2 to Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola will obviously want his side to do everything possible to be top of the league and overtake Liverpool. The Blues have the upper hand tomorrow as Liverpool face Newcastle at 12.30. Man City don’t play until 5.30pm, which means that they’ll have the early game score in their minds for when they go for glory at Norwich. Does Man City need to make any changes to make sure they come away with 3 points?
Man City’s defence has been the topic of conversation for months. At first, fans were wondering who would have to replace Vincent Kompany, now that Aymeric Laporte is out injured, that’s taken over the conversation.
Pep Guardiola has used his tactics to drop Fernandinho to a defensive position, and John Stones is also a name who has been mentioned as he has supposedly recovered from a thigh injury.
Raheem Sterling is on top form at the minute and Kevin De Bruyne could assist pretty much anything too. The two have both been out in the international break playing for England and Belgium and proving their skill.
Now they will need to have their mind set back on the Premier League and settle back into their weekly job at hand. I do predict that City will win and they’ll bag a few goals. It will be a matter of which of their goal scorers can find the back of the net and how many times. Hopefully, the later kick-off and the fact that Liverpool plays first will help give the squad an indication of exactly what needs to be done.
