The meeting involving Norwich and Manchester City closes the game schedule on Saturday 14 September for the fifth round of the 2019/2020 English Premier League. It will be held at Carrow Road stadium in Norwich. The kick-off is scheduled for 1:30 pm GMT.
With 20 participants, the Premier League has 38 planned matches. They are turn and return games, but they do not follow the same order, until the definition of the champion and five classified for international tournaments. The top four win the Champions League. The fifth goes to Europa League.
Making its return season to the Premier League, Norwich will enter the relegation zone. With three points (one win and three losses), he occupies the nineteenth – penultimate – position in the Premier League standings.
The score, however, is the same as Wolves, which is in seventeenth position, the first outside the sticking region. ‘Canaries’, however, have a disadvantage in the tiebreaker criteria.
The table for this early season was not very favorable to Norwich. The team started their campaign against Liverpool. It took 4 to 1. It even featured a refreshment on matchday two. Received Newcastle, a direct opponent in the fight against relegation. He didn’t let the opportunity pass. Scored 3 to 1.
However, right after that there was one more giant. At home, it took 3-2 of Chelsea. On Matchday 4 in London, they beat West Ham 2-0. Among those clashes they were still eliminated from the English League Cup. He fell in front of Crawley. Lost 1-0 at rival’s stadium.
The 2019/2020 version of the English Premier League is drawing as a repetition of what happened in the previous one with a point to point title dispute between Liverpool and Manchester City.
At the start of round five, the Reds were in the hunting role having added up to 12 possible points in the opening four rounds. City have won ten (three wins and a draw). So a slip this Saturday turns out to be unacceptable. Also because a new item will be added in this duel. The two protagonists of the battle will debut next week in the Champions League. The blues will face Shakhtar in Ukraine on Wednesday, September 18.
For Saturday’s duel, coach Pep Guardiola still has doubts regarding the use of Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus, who is in the process of recovering from injury. He is also in the medical department and needs further evaluation to see if defender John Stones is available. Injured and vetoed are defenders Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy and striker Leroy Sané.
The hosts started in the new season with a defeat at Anfield, score 4-1. Later, they obtained the first and only points of this season, after a 3-1 on their own field with Newcastle. In the next 2 rounds, Norwich suffered two more defeats, 2-3 with Chelsea and 0-2 with West Ham. Even in the English League Cup the hosts failed to win, losing in the away game to modest Crawley, score 1-0. Tom Trybull, Onel Hernandez and Timm Klose will not be able to evolve due to injuries. Norwich last won on their own home ground against Manchester City in a Championship match in August 2001.
Probable team: Krul – Lewis, Hanley, Godfrey, Aarons – Buendia, Tettey, Amadou, Vrancic, Cantwell – Pukki
Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laprote are the only absentees for Pep Guardiola. Even without the two, it can line up a stellar team, and City should scroll. With an attack like Silva – Aguero – Sterling, any defensive has to work. The English champion took one wrong step after a 2-2 draw with Tottenham in the second round. Otherwise, they defile, scoring empty after goal. Manchester City defeated West Ham 5-0, Bournemouth 3-1 and Brighton the previous stage, 4-0. Today’s guests are also the champions of England after defeating Liverpool in the away matches.
Probable team: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko – De Bruyne, Rodrigo, David Silva – Silva, Aguero, Sterling
