Reason for Manchester City vs Norwich Predictions
Manchester City and Norwich City opened their league campaigns with losses and will both be seeking three points in Week 2 of Premier League action. City hosts newly promoted Norwich who fell 3-0 to Liverpool as they look to recover from a 1-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur. The hosts had a number of starters on the bench against Tottenham, which was expected after a busy summer with international competitions. A number of them will be easing back into the starting team, which is an assurance of a stronger lineup against Norwich. Like it was against Spurs, Manchester City is expected to dominate possession, just that this time they will be expected to make use of it, and having lost back to back should be enough to push them here. City hasn’t kept a clean sheet in three matches and goes here with three losses in their last five league games at home. Phil Foden is showing his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Norwich was never expected to start strongly on their Premier League return, with their three opening games being against teams that finished in the top five. This is just the second after the big loss to Liverpool, and Leicester City lies in wait on Week 3. They meet a City side really in need of a win to bounce back after a run of top losses – to Chelsea in the Champions League, Leicester City in the Community Shield, and Tottenham recently. Norwich has lost one of their best players, Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa, and a tough start to the season will not help in their confidence. They wrapped up their preseason with a 3-0 loss to Newcastle before starting the season with a failure by the same margin to Liverpool, and they should start getting used to tough matches now. Billy Gilmour found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Manchester City is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
