Manchester City 2019-20 Premier League season preview

An injury-ravaged Norwich City outclassed champions Manchester City 3-2 in the Premier League on Saturday with striker Teemu Pukki scoring one and setting up another for a famous win at Carrow Road.

Eleven players were sidelined for Norwich, with many suffering injuries during the international break, but that did not stop the promoted side from handing Pep Guardiola's men their first loss of the season.

Rodri, Man City's club record signing, set up a tense finish to the match when he fired in his first goal for the club but Norwich held on to take all three points. Follow the live action below:

Manchester City need to win here at Carrow Road to close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the table. Based on the closeness of the title race last season any dropped points this early in the season could have a big effect come March.

Norwich have just the one win this season, a 3-1 victory over Newcastle in August. They face a huge challenge with 11 of their players out with injuries.

This could be a goal fest.

Norwich have 11 men out with injuries including four from their most recent starting XI.

John Stones gets a recall to the Manchester City back line but the big threat for Norwich are Bernardo, Sterling and Aguero up top.

The teams are waiting in the tunnel. There have been 33 goals in the last 8 games between the sides with more to come today. 

Usually I would say who's your money on? But instead we're going with how many goals will we see?

Three, four, a well fought zero?
