Manchester City vs Norwich City team news
City are still without Phil Foden, although they should have Ilkay Gundogan available despite the former Borussia Dortmund player suffering a shoulder injury last week.
Gundogan has trained as normal and should be available.
Norwich, meanwhile, are without Przemyslaw Placheta and Sam Byram while Onel Hernandez and Jordan Hugill are rated as 50/50.
Manchester City vs Norwich City preview
The defending champions could not have hand-picked a better match from which to bounce back from the disappointment of last week’s defeat.
Norwich were roundly beaten 3-0 by Liverpool in their opening clash and the Canaries’ daunting start to the new campaign is likely to go from bad to worse.
City were ominous in their own stadium last term, scoring 43 goals in 19 games, and Guardiola’s men should be able to rack up the goals against one of the division’s weakest-looking sides.
The Blues scored more than three goals at home in the 2020-21 season against Burnley, Crystal Palace, Everton, Wolves and Southampton and another high-scoring home win looks on the cards this weekend.
Manchester City vs Norwich City tips & predictions
The hosts can be backed at 11/8 (2.38) to win and score over 3.5 goals which looks like a good way to get City onside in an extremely one-sided market.
City to win and over 3.5 goals in the game could also appeal at 10/11 (1.91) .
