Manchester City vs. Norwich City: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and Preview
The club last competed at Etihad Stadium on Oct. 5, earning a 3-1 victory over Everton. Manchester City have been quite impressive at home this year, winning all four Premier League matches while outscoring opponents 13-2.
While the squad has had only mixed levels of success on the road this year in various competitions, it can feel comfortable in the fact that it will play five of the next six matches at home.
Meanwhile, Norwich City will simply try to get any points in this match. They have only one win in the last six matches and are already facing possible relegation at season's end. Being able to earn at least a draw in this tough competition would go a long way toward avoid that fate.

Top Storyline: Can Norwich City Keep Up Offensively?
Norwich have been solid in many ways this year, but the attack is nothing to write home about. The squad is currently tied with Stoke City and Crystal Palace for the fewest goals scored in the league.
After scoring two goals in the first match against Everton, this group has not had multiple goals in a Premier League match and have been shut out four times.
Norwich have solid facilitators in the midfield, including Leroy Fer and Nathan Redmond, but no one can be really trusted to finish up front.
Against the top scoring team in the EPL, it is hard to imagine them mustering up enough goals to stay competitive.
Prediction: Manchester City 3, Norwich City 0
Although something strange happens when Manchester City goes on the road, this is one of the best attacks in Europe when playing at home.
Sergio Aguero has been a scoring machine this season, but opponents cannot just key on him. If they do, guys like Yaya Toure and David Silva will make them pay. Of course, Edin Dzeko is the one keeping it all together, and he seems to still not have reached his potential for this season.
This group will put the pressure on the Norwich defense throughout the match, and it will be fortunate for the road team if only three goals go through.
Manchester City should win this match with ease and move back toward the top of the table where they belong.
