    Premier League LIVE! – Norwich vs. Manchester City

    Probable Lineups:

    Norwich (4-4-2): Ruddy, Martin, R Bennett, Bassong, Olsson, Snodgrass, Fer, Johnson, Tetty, Gutiérrez, Hooper

    Norwich will be hoping that they don’t receive a backlash from Manchester City after the Sky Blue’s loss to Chelsea at the Etihad.  Christ Hughton could very well field a much more defensive side, with only one up front instead of his preferred 4-4-2, which could see Ricky Van Wolfswinkel drop from the starting lineup.

    Manchester City (4-3-3): Hart, Zabaleta, Nastastic, Kompany, Clichy, Navas, Y Touré, Demichillis, Silva, Dzeko, Negredo

    The English Premier League this year has been undoubtedly one of the closest in living memory, and the Citizens know that they cannot afford to slip points against sides in the lower half of the table.  With Sergio Aguero still sidelined, Dzeko could replace the Argentinian with Jovetic as an alternative option.  Injured Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho, who didn’t feature in their loss to Chelsea, will be again replaced by Demichillis in the middle of the park.

    What the fans are saying…
    Remember this?

    So Manchester City put a few goals past Norwich earlier this season…

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    dzeko

    Sergio Aguero is not the only world class striker at Manchester City’s disposal.  His replacement Edin Dzeko, who comes at a relatively cheap 7.1 in the Official Fantasy Premier League game, has always banged in the goals even with limited playing time and could get on the scoresheet this weekend.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Manchester City have won their last three Premier League trips to Carrow Road, scoring 13 and conceding six times.

    Chris Hughton’s side have alternated between scoring one goal or not scoring at all in their last nine Premier League matches.

    There have been red cards in two of the last three Premier League meetings between Norwich and Man City at Carrow Road.
