Manchester City lost their opening match to Tottenham Hotspur and will be very keen to get its campaign off the ground. For a team that lost the least number of matches in the Premier League last season, that opening loss would have rankled. A move to home against the newly promoted Norwich City may just be what the doctor ordered.
Norwich City started with a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool and this match does not promise much better. Norwich has a terrible record against Manchester City and while playing away from home in general. It has conceded 37 goals in the previous 12 matches it has played against Manchester City including five in the most recent one.
Manchester City is going to be without Phil Foden (injured) but should see Jack Grealish start this match. Kyle Walker and John Stones should make a comeback into the team as well. For Norwich City, Sam Byram is out with a thigh injury.
Match Prediction and football betting tips for Manchester City vs Norwich City, Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on the 21st of August 2021.
We have no hesitation in backing Manchester City to win this match. The opening loss would have served as a wake-up call and will force the team to come out aggressively in this match. It will take some time for the new acquisitions to get used to their teammates but the class of Manchester City should shine through in this encounter. Overall, Manchester City has an incredible goal-scoring record against Norwich City and with the defensive problems we saw for Norwich against Liverpool, this looks likely to be another one-sided contest.
Bet on Manchester City to win.
We think the second half is going to be the time when the floodgates really open on the scoring. Manchester City has enough quality keep on coming hard at Norwich no matter what the situation of the game is. Expect the strikers to be rotated and a fresh pair of legs always coming at the Norwich defense.
Manchester City favored to score two goals at the very least and bookmakers fancy it scoring three or more as well. With a bit of rust possibly still around, we are looking at this bet instead of the Total Goals market. Manchester City should be able to score at least once in both halves and that is enough to get you paid. Pep Guardiola's men have scored more than 100 goals in each of the previous two seasons and this is another great opportunity to test the back of net multiple times.
