Manchester City recovers from opening day defeat

Manchester City had a false start of this Premier League season. What better way to recover from a defeat than to play a newly promoted side like Norwich City? Pre-match every Man City was excited for this match, seeing Norwich City as the perfect medicine to take away their headache after the Spurs loss.

Early goal to take the lead

A victory is always the best medicine and an early goal is the perfect way to claim that victory. Especially for a team like Manchester City it’s the perfect way to show the opponent that there is nothing to get from them. This is excactly how Man City started this match. A great cross from Gabriel Jesus led to an own goal by Tim Krul in the 7th minute. From this moment on it was clear that Norwich City was going to have a tough match. A cross by Gabriel Jesus bounced via Jack Grealish’ knee into the Norwich City goal. Man City kept dominating the match, but couldn’t extend the score even further in the first half.

With late goals to a big victory

The second half wasn’t any different to the first half. Manchester City kept possession of the ball on Norwich City’s half. It took them until the 64th minute to extend the lead to 3-0 thanks to Aymeric Laporte. Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez also entered the scoresheet lifting the score to 5-0. A good result for the Cityzens to put their first points on the table. Now they can prepare for their next battle against another North-London team. Next weekend Arsenal is the opponent.
