Norwich vs Man City
5:30pm Saturday 14th September
Team news, essential stats and predictions ahead of Norwich vs Manchester City in the Premier League
Norwich have been hit by a string of injury setbacks before winners Manchester City’s visit. Full-back Max Aarons (ankle) is put for a spell out after injury on international duty with England U21s, whereas fellow miniature Lions defender Ben Godfrey will be evaluated on a groin problem.
Goalkeeper Tim Krul (elbow) can be doubtful and on-loan City winger Patrick Roberts isn’t qualified to confront his parent team. Midfielders Mario Vrancic and Moritz Leitner (both calf) are sidelined, combined with Tom Trybull (ankle), whilst captain Christoph Zimmermann (foot), shield Timm Klose along with winger Onel Hernandez (both knee) all carry their own rehab.
City defender John Stones is best fit to return after a thigh injury. He’ll choose the area of Aymeric Laporte, that has been ruled out for five to six months after undergoing knee surgery. Striker Gabriel Jesus (thigh) comes in contention and midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has defeat a stomach bug but Benjamin Mendy (knee) isn’t yet prepared to reunite and winger Leroy Sane (knee) is extended long term.
Norwich vs Manchester City is live on Saturday Night Football in 5pm; kick-off 5.30pm. Sky Sports clients can observe clips in the game blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be released on the Sky Sports programs along with the Sky Sports Football YouTube station soon.
You have no reason worry, aside from the harm to Aymeric Laporte and to check at Man City’s concerns. Norwich are good going forward – everybody is speaking about Teemu Pukki but Todd Cantwell has begun great. They won’t do that against City, although the full-backs like to get high. The Norwich defenders will be rash against the side of Pep Guardiola. Actually Grant Hanley can’t get in the Scotland side tells you something.
Daniel Farke doesn’t embrace – the expectation is that you are going to get beat. If you inquire 90 percent of Norwich fans now when they would take or whether they’d rather lose 1-0 rather than have a shot on target, I think they would go to the former. They ought to go in a positive part, and that’s how you examine yourself in it although it is not an embarrassment losing to Manchester City. As was Raheem Sterling within the global break, which explains why I will proceed with this scoreline, kevin De Bruyne was excellent in Glasgow.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-6 (66/1 with Sky Bet)
