Manchester City will hope to emulate a feat only rivals Manchester United have achieved as we look at some Man City v Norwich betting tips.

United are the only team in Premier League history to have lost their first match and gone on to lift the title – doing so in 1993, 1996 and 2013.

Following their defeat at Tottenham on Sunday, Pep Guardiola’s side now have an ideal opportunity to return to winning ways when promoted Norwich – beaten 3-0 at home by Liverpool – head to the Etihad Stadium.

Match Odds


Mega-bucks City have suffered three successive defeats, failing to score in 1-0 losses to Chelsea, Leicester and Tottenham – all in different competitions.

It is the first time under Guardiola that City have been kept off the scoresheet in three consecutive matches and they are a whopping 20/1 to extend that run!

Manchester City have won this fixture on four of the last five occasions, scoring 19 goals and conceding twice.

They have netted at least five goals in three of those encounters and that is 3/1 in our Man City v Norwich betting tips to happen again.

Norwich have drawn a blank in four of their previous six Premier League matches with Manchester City and it is 3/5 for that trend to continue.

The champions are 17/20 to win both halves and 1/2 to score in each half – as was the case in two of the last three meetings at this venue.

Norwich have now suffered 11 successive top-flight matches – only Sunderland have lost more – and they are 25/1 to prevail with the draw priced at 9/1.

Talking Tactics


City new boy Jack Grealish made a low-key debut following his £100million move from Aston Villa while fellow midfielder Ilkay Gundogan suffered a shoulder injury late on and is an early doubt.

Kevin De Bruyne made a late appearance as a substitute and could well start as Guardiola bids to get his side back firing on all cylinders with a home win and over 3.5 goals available at 19/20 in the Man City v Norwich betting tips.

Norwich striker Teemu Pukki, understandably, looked a little off the pace following an interrupted pre-season against Liverpool, with Josh Sargant and Adam Idah options for manager Daniel Farke in attack.

Goalscorer Odds


City forward Ferran Torres produced a bright performance against Spurs and could well get the nod again, with the Spain international 7/4 to open the scoring in the Man City v Norwich betting tips.

De Bruyne netted twice in a 5-0 thrashing of Norwich on the final day two seasons ago and is 4/1 to break the deadlock as is Gabriel Jesus, who netted first in that match.

Pukki was on target 11 times in Norwich’s last Premier League campaign – including in a 3-2 home win over City – and is 12/1 to grab the first goal of the game.
