One of the mis matches of the weekend on paper will see league leaders Manchester City take on a struggling Norwich City. Norwich have lost four games in a row and will be looking to get their season back on track here but this is a really tough ask for Norwich. Nathan Redmond is key to everything Norwich do going forward and with Mbokani injured the winger will be even more important. Jerome will take the place of Mbokani if he cant play and with Hoolohan, Redmond and Brady in behind this is a team that could theoretically cause problems for Manchester City with their pace on the wings and delivery from brady and hoolohan if they are allowed to come out and play at the Ethiad. But Neil has had a tendency to not play his creative midfielder(Hoolohan) on the road and to pack the midfield and to try to stop the opposition having space in the midfield.
At the moment there is no one hotter in the Premier League than Manchester City. Even without star pair Sergio Aguero and David Villa this is a team of quality and Raheem Sterling, Wilfred Bony and Kevin De Bruyne have made sure that Manchester City have continued to win games and they look the most likely team to win the league at this point. The addition of Sterling and De Bruyne though give Manchester City a depth they havent had in previous years and Ya Ya Toure looks like he wants to be there again with the two Fernando's playing behind in the centre allowing Ya Ya the freedom to patrol the middle this is what Manuel Pelligrini has been looking for and I think right now Manchester City have a great balance.
Manchester City have played five home games this season only one of them they have failed to win, an unusal loss to West Ham when they really didnt play well but in each of the other four games Manchester City have won by two or more. In fact they have won one of the games by two and the other three games by three, four and five. I am taking Manchester City -1 here and I think this one is a steal.
