This season, there has been an average of approximately 2.8 goals per match in the English Premier League.
There was a total of 35 goals in Saturday's eight matches, with an average of 4.375 goals per game.
The Canaries scored three times against the Champions but were still on the losing side as Edin Dzeko helped his side record their 12th win of the season.
Here's a list of five things we learned or were reinforced in Saturday's match at Carrow Road.
Roberto Mancini put his faith in Edin Dzeko against Norwich City and was rewarded with two great goals from the Bosnian.
Dzeko put in a man-of-the-match performance on Saturday and certainly deserves to start against Stoke City on New Years Day.
Nonetheless, the 26-year-old has a lot to do if he is going to start above Carlos Tevez on a regular basis.
While Tevez is arguably more passionate and better on the ball than Dzeko, the Bosnian is more powerful and better in the air.
As of now, the Argentinian is still Mancini's "Number One". But if Dzeko continues to play like he did against Norwich, the Italian manager will have no choice but to start the former Wolfsburg man.
Against Manchester City Saturday, Morison had another bad game and was substituted at halftime.
With the transfer window just days away and speculation that Paul Lambert wants to bring Morison to Villa Park, Hughton will have a big decision to make.
The English striker was influential for Norwich last season, scoring 10 goals in 37 appearances. However, this season Morison has looked off his game and has started just seven matches (in all competitions).
Harry Kane showed his potential against Manchester City. The 19-year-old came in for Steve Morison at halftime and looked vibrant.
Kane is currently on loan from Tottenham Hotspur. The young striker made his senior debut in 2010 and spent one season at Leyton Orient, where he scored five goals. He then spent a year on loan at Millwall, where he scored 10 times.
Kane has made 19 appearances for England's U-19 team and has scored eight international goals (U-19 and U-17 teams).
Harry Kane certainly got a little spotlight from the Manchester City match, and Norwich fans will want to see the young man make more appearances over the course of the season.
Gareth Barry was great Saturday. He was solid in defense and made a few superb passes in attack.
While the Englishman and Yaya Toure were both listed as defensive midfielders in this match, the Ivorian was one of City's main attackers. Barry's strength and composure allowed Toure to play high up the pitch.
Manchester City have wasted a lot of money since Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008 but the £12 million signing of Gareth Barry was certainly a great deal for the Citizens.
It's not been a great month of refereeing in the English Premier League.
On Boxing Day, many managers were left fuming at the officials.
Roberto Mancini said, "Maybe the referee ate too much for Christmas," while Sir Alex Ferguson was angry at referee Mike Dean. In the match between QPR and West Bromwich Albion, a goal was unfairly awarded to the Baggies while the Londoners should have been given a penalty.
In the game between Norwich City vs. Manchester City, referee Mike Jones wasn't bad but made a big mistake in sending off Samir Nasri.
The Frenchman went head-to-head with Sebastien Bassong at the end of the first half but certainly did not deserve to be sent off.
Red cards change games more than anything else and it is essential that referees are correct when sending players off.
Goal-line technology will soon be introduced in the Premier League, but FIFA must invest in video replays for red cards.
