Manchester City vs Norwich City Match Prediction: August 21, 2021
The last Premier League match between Manchester City FC and Norwich City FC was on 26 July 2020. This was a very memorable match since Manchester City managed to defeat the Norwich club by a huge 5-0 margin. Kevin de Bruyne scored two goals, one in the 45th minute and the other in the 90th. The three other goals were supplied by Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez. Norwich City is looking forward to exact vengeance against this defeat – but most experts don’t have many expectations from them. Clearly, Manchester City is the hot favourite in this particular matchup.
Pep Guardiola – The Amazing Manager & Gamemaker of Manchester City FC
The Spaniard Pep Guardiola has been in charge of the Etihad Stadium side ever since 2016, after transferring from the Bayern Munich team. Under his leadership, the team has been transformed into one of the biggest powerhouses in the league. In fact, Manchester City won the Premier League in 2018 under his tutelage and managed to be the only club to rack up more than 100 points in a single season. The Manchester City team uses a standard 4-3-3 playing style, which is influenced by the Spanish tiki taka. They are an aggressive team with a lot of amazing players.
Is There a Lot of Confidence in the Norwich City Team?
Norwich City have been on a disappointing run lately, and there isn’t a lot of faith in their abilities. In fact, the team has lost two of its last three matches against Liverpool and Newcastle. However, it might not be a good idea to write them off completely. The Canaries managed to win an impressive 5-0 victory over Gillingham FC on 4 August 2021. However, this was a casual friendly match and it can’t be said with maximum surety. The terrific form of Manchester City must also be considered – with big names like de Bruyne, Mahrez, Sterling, Jesus, etc.
