Man City vs Norwich
Manchester City’s 2021/22 Premier League campaign did not get off to a great start.
Despite dominating across lengthy periods, City lost 1-0 to Tottenham on the opening weekend.
Pep Guardiola and co. should, however, have a much easier test this time around.
The Sky Blues are set to play host to Norwich City in a 3 PM kick-off this coming Saturday.
The Canaries kicked off their Premier League return in altogether concerning fashion, losing 3-0 at home to Liverpool last weekend. And a similar drubbing is likely coming their way this week, too.
