Man City v Norwich: Citizens can put Canaries to the sword

| 18.05.2013

Manchester City have smashed 18 goals in their last four Premier League encounters against Norwich City and there’s likely to be no respite for the Canaries in the pair’s upcoming season finale.

That averages out at 4.5 goals a game with a punt on over the same number being netted in this contest paying at odds of 27/10.

Chris Hughton’s side were impressive themselves in last week’s 4-0 demolition of West Brom.

However, recent meetings with City have tended to expose their frailties with the team from the blue half of Manchester at their fluid best against them.

One man in particular has been prolific when lining-up against the Norfolk outfit.

Sergio Aguero has enjoyed more Premier League striking success against Norwich than any other side, with four goals plundered against their hapless backline.

With pointers like that, the 11/10 for Aguero to score and Manchester City to win looks almost too good to pass up.

And it’s not just against the former Premier League champions that the visitors have fallen short, especially away from home.

The East Anglian side have been in woeful form on their travels this season and a visit to face one of their bogey teams is unlikely to produce a reversal of fortunes.

Only Reading have collected fewer points on the road than the Canaries in 2012/2013, with the 1/3 for a Manchester City victory fully justified given all of the current trends.

One sole win, eight draws and 11 defeats with just ten points yielded is Norwich’s paltry away return.

Having failed to score in eight of those previous 18 Premier League trips, a City whitewash may also be on the cards.

The home side are an appealing 5/4 to win to nil and their managerless squad will no doubt be eager to assert themselves ahead of the appointment of a new incumbent.
