Norwich City vs Manchester City Betting Preview | 14 Sept 2019

Making a return from the international break and looking to close the gap on Liverpool, Manchester City will make the trip to a struggling Carrow Road on Saturday evening.

Picking up a 4-0 win over Brighton entering September and continuing to shine in the final third, the defending champions are one of just three sides to maintain an unbeaten start to the 2019/2020 campaign.

On the flip side, while Pep Guardiola’s men might be enjoying yet another purple patch in England’s top-tier, Norwich have a real headache on their hands after making their Premier League return over the summer.

With the Sky Blues picking up a 3-0 win the last time they made the trip to Carrow Road back in 2016, you will be interested to know that a similar score can be found at 8/1 with Bet365 this weekend.

A relegation scrap for Norwich?

While Head Coach Daniel Farke may have gained a long list of admirers following his side running away with the Championship title last season, Norwich have come crashing back down to earth.

Suffering a 2-0 loss away at West Ham prior to the international break, the former Borussia Dortmund coach has seen his side lose three of their opening four matches and the Canaries also came crashing out of the League Cup at the hands of League Two Crawley last month.

Already freefalling to 19th, Norwich now find themselves as a favourite with the bookmakers to secure an immediate Championship return come May.

Saturday’s hosts are currently priced at 11/8 with SkyBet to land a bottom-three finish, ahead of both Sheffield United and Newcastle.

Opting to spend just £1.1million during the summer transfer window, the lowest amount splashed out by any side in the top-flight, fans in East Anglia will be most concerned by their sides continued defensive struggles.

Now the only side to ship double digits in their opening four Premier League matches, there is no doubt that Saturday will once again be an extremely tough test for the Canaries.

Sergio Aguero’s free-scoring start continues

Putting four past Brighton prior to the international break, Manchester City have bounced back in some style after dropping points against Spurs last month.

Although Head Coach Pep Guardiola will be more than aware that Liverpool can briefly extend their lead to five points before City make the trip to East Anglia, Saturday’s guests are still a huge favourite to lift their third consecutive league crown.

The Sky Blues can be found at 2/5 with Ladbrokes to reclaim their title, ahead of JurgenKlopp’s men who sit at 5/2.

With the defending champions once again catching the eye in the final third, one man to watch this weekend will be the red-hot Sergio Aguero.

Once again bagging yet another brace against Brighton prior to the break, Guardiola’s leading man already has six Premier League strikes to his name and has found the net in each of his appearances so far.

You will be interested to know that the Argentina icon can be found at 3/5 with SkyBet to extend his goalscoring run this weekend.
