Finally Joe Hart has been dropped from the starting 11 and Man City's defence can rest easy. Hart's clanger last week against Chelsea was the latest in long line of mistakes. Time and time again he has gifted points to the opposition and I can imagine his exclusion would be music to the ears of the Man City back line; hell to the ears of Norwich who cannot buy a goal right now.
In Gary Hooper, Norwich have someone who looks a threat.
However, as Hooper is not as dominant in the air as the others, he needs to be partnered with someone playing slightly deeper to play him on goal. Overall this means a stylistic change from Norwich requiring more short passes.
Manchester City 3-0 Norwich City
