Manchester City vs Norwich City LIVE Football Score 12 Feb 2022
Two in-form Premier League teams at opposite ends of the table will lock horns at Carrow Road on Saturday evening when Norwich City host Manchester City. The Canaries are unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions, while the Citizens last tasted defeat domestically back in October last year. Norwich have boosted their hopes of Premier League survival over the past few weeks, as they have accumulated seven points from a possible nine available, only one fewer than they claimed in their previous 12 league matches. Two important victories in January against fellow relegation candidates Everton and Watford were followed by a 1-1 draw at home against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
Norwich will face the toughest test of their recent revival when welcoming Manchester City to Carrow Road on Saturday. The evening kick-off pits the Premier League’s runaway leaders against Dean Smith’s rejuvenated Canaries, who are unbeaten in four matches in all competitions after a midweek draw against Crystal Palace. City overcame Brentford on Monday night to maintain their hefty lead over second-placed Liverpool, thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne. A 5-0 triumph for Pep Guardiola’s side in August was their first win of the league season, a tally they can notch over to 20 with another three points in East Anglia. Manchester City came through the midweek win over Brentford unscathed ahead of facing Norwich on Saturday. The Canaries have won three out of their last four in all competitions, and drew with Crystal Palace last time out, to set up a potentially difficult clash for the Premier League leaders.
Pep Guardiola will be without Cole Palmer, who picked up an injury in the FA Cup win at Swindon last month and will remain out for a couple more weeks. Gabriel Jesus missed the Brentford win having returned back from international duty with a muscle injury. Guardiola confirmed earlier this week that City will have to be “careful” with the problem, but that the striker will nonetheless be ready “soon”. City made six changes on Wednesday night with Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko left on the bench, and Guardiola could continue his rotation policy with a Champions League clash against Sporting CP on the horizon.
