Manchester City will be looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League run to 15 games when they travel to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon to take on Norwich City.

The match, which kicks off at 5.30pm, will see Pep Guardiola’s side try and secure their 14th league win in 15 matches after a 2-0 win over Brentford on Wednesday. Goals from Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne were enough for City to secure all three points.

As for Norwich, they are undefeated in their last three league games, most recently drawing 1-1 with Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

The Canaries’ form in the top-flight has been poor with only two wins in their last 10 matches, leaving them with a relegation fight in the second half of the season.
