Going in to this weekend Norwich has won just once in their last nine matches and are drifting towards a relegation battle as they sit in 15th place with 24 points. They are tied for scoring the second fewest goals in the league this season and has the second worst goal difference with -22, having allowed 41 goals, also the second most.
This is a match that Manchester City will certainly be looking at as a way to bounce back from their 0-1 home defeat to Chelsea last Monday. Despite the loss they remain in second place thanks to their massive goal difference of +41 with 68 goals scored.
Away matches have been their weakness this season where they have lost four EPL matches this season including two in which they have not scored. However, they have recently changed that form and have won their last four straight road games as well as being unbeaten in their last six away matches in the Premier League. In this time they have failed to score two or more goals just once, in the 1-1 draw to Southampton at the beginning of December.
My pick is a fairly easy one in going with a Manchester City win. This does seem like a match of simply predicting how many they will score. With that said, Norwich do stand a chance. After all, Manchester City do have weaknesses and can be stopped, although Norwich probably do not have the team to be able to do that.

Norwich win: 7.50; Draw: 5.50; Man City win: 1.33
Form: Norwich (L, D, L, W, D, L) Man City (W, W, W, W, W, L)
