In the English Premier League, Manchester City will play against Norwich City away from home at Carrow Road.
Manchester City have been in outstanding touch this season as they currently have 10 points from their 4 games. In their last outing, Manchester City defeated Brighton 4-0 at home. It was a dominant performance by the Sky Blues as they controlled 54% of the ball and had 15 shots. The midfield was especially impressive as Manchester City completed close to 600 passes at an accuracy of 89%. Sergio Aguero continued his impressive form as he scored twice for Manchester City. Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne both contributed with goals also. Manchester City looked like a very balanced unit and the team is playing with confidence and precision. This should be a relatively simple outing for Manchester City.
On the other side of the coin, Norwich City lost their previous outing as they were beaten 2-0 by West Ham United away from home. It has been a modest start to the season for the Canaries as they only have 3 points and are currently in 19th spot on the ladder. Other than winning against Newcastle, Norwich have lost all of their games. The defense is a big issue for Norwich City as they have already conceded 10 goals meaning they have the worst defensive record in the competition. Considering the strength of the Manchester City attack, this could be a tough match for Norwich City.
Norwich City and Manchester City didn’t compete in the Premier League last season as the Canaries were in the Championship.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to this match. The Canaries are a significantly weaker side and I see them struggling to defend against the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling. I am expecting a high scoring match so the over 3.5 goals wager seems like good value. This should be an easy win for Manchester City.
