Man City started crying hard this season
It was followed by a disappointing opening match at Tottenham in the Premier League arena. The same scenario repeats when Man City completely dominate in possession time and also create opportunities but cannot take advantage. They lost with the minimum difference when Son Heung-min dribbled the ball like no one and then hit Ederson’s net in the 55th minute.
These two defeats show a problem that Man City is hungry for a striker. Gabriel Jesus is not trusted by coach Pep Guardiola for the main kick, while the most likely option in the virtual 9 position is De Bruyne, who has not been in the best shape because of injury at Euro 2020.
The Harry Kane deal has not made much progress when Tottenham insists on asking for 160 million pounds. Meanwhile, coach Pep Guardiola will still have to manage to find the most suitable midfielder to kick the striker. His test against Leicester and Tottenham, Ferran Torres, failed miserably and the final result is the most obvious reflection.
Man City will have a chance to relax when facing Norwich this weekend before facing Arsenal, Leicester, Chelsea and Liverpool in the next rounds. The last time they received the “Canary”, Pep Guardiola’s teachers and students won 5-0 with attacks that made the opponent unable to swipe his face in time.
The pressure on the feet of Man City players is now great and they need a big win against Norwich to relieve it. It is clear that Man City will play with any formation, with a striker or not, Norwich will also have to receive many goals.
Norwich promises to be a good bait for the defending champion
This team has the desire to bring to the Premier League a free and emotional play, ready to attack and double attack even with big teams. But clearly the force that coach Daniel Farke has in hand is not strong enough to do that.
As the opening match against Liverpool showed, although Norwich held the ball up to 51% and launched 14 shots, they did not concede Liverpool’s goal even once. In contrast, Norwich also had to concede 3 goals because of indiscreet defense. In fact, defensive teams have a greater chance of staying in the Premier League. And the game that Norwich built is only harmful because it is very difficult to win points from the big boys.
With a thin midfield with Billy Gilmour as the center, Norwich will most likely become Man City’s target when marching to the Etihad Stadium today.
– At least 3 goals have been scored in the last 4 games of Norwich.
– At least 1 goal has been scored in the first half of Norwich’s last 6 away games.
– At least 3 goals have been scored in the last 5 confrontations of Man City and Norwich at Etihad.
– The last 8/10 matches between Man City and Norwich ended with odd goals.
– Man City is the team that must receive the card first in 4 home matches against Norwich.
