We don’t have many teams playing in the English Premier League this weekend due to the FA Cup but the teams that are playing will have the added advantage of gaining some breathing space. One of the teams who will be playing will be Manchester City who will make up their game in hand this weekend and will look to do that with a win as they take on Norwich City away from home.

Manchester City have been very up and down this season but lately they have played some pretty good football so I think they will be happy with their own form heading into this match. This is going to be one of the easiest game remaining for the Sky Blues so I think that they will coast home. Having said that, I think a few key players might get rested since the Manchester based side has Champions League commitments midweek.

Norwich City will look to take advantage of that fact but too be honest, even at home they don’t stand a very high chance of winning. This team has failed all season and with things getting serious, I don’t see them doing any better. Relegation is very much a possibility for these players and I think the fans are coming to terms with that so I think they will lose quite badly here.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a terrible price on almost everything here so I think this is not the best game to put your money on. That being said if you are determined to put money on here I think that the best bet is over 2.5 goals. City have a great front line and I think they will be running riot upfront so that is my pick for the match. 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
