Manchester City Starting XI Prediction at Norwich City

Share

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke has a massive task on his hands tomorrow, as he’ll take on Manchester City, the first team in history to spend one billion Euros on building a roster. He’ll also have to do it with nothing short of an injury crisis on his hands.

“Sometimes when you have many muscle injuries, you have to look at doing something different in training,” said Farke. “But these injuries are so unlucky. We cannot complain too much. We won’t cry, it’s tricky, but we will try to search for some solutions.”

City have 13 of the last 14 Premier League meetings between the two sides and the Canaries have only beaten City in top flight competition twice, in their whole history.

“We have played four games, which is nothing,” said Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

“Now we start the real competition, we play Saturday, we travel to Ukraine Monday and play Wednesday, we land Thursday afternoon and Saturday we have the Premier League and then go to Preston.”

“The next five games [in all competitions], four are away. Many things can happen, we have had two terrible injuries with Leroy [Sane] and Aymeric [Laporte] so we will see.”

With the long term injury to Laporte, Guardiola will have to go with a new first choice central defense pairing.
