Manchester City will entertain Norwich City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon hoping to end their season with a dominant win at home. The Citizens managed to earn a convincing 4-0 win over Watford earlier this week which would keep them in good spirits going into this upcoming clash at the north-west of England.
Pep Guardiola will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and might make a few changes to his first-team for this final league match of this campaign.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Norwich City
Ederson will operate in goal for the home side after earning a comfortable clean sheet versus the Hornets on Tuesday. Eric Garcia could feature alongside Aymeric Laporte at the heart of the Citizens backline as they try to restrict Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki from scoring this weekend.
Kyle Walker could keep his spot at right-back while Oleksandr Zinchenko comes in on the other side to feature as the left-back. Both Man City full-backs will be desperate to create some promising chances to score in the final third, so we can expect them to be more attack-minded than usual when the Canaries come to town on Sunday.
Guardiola could choose to go with a midfield three of David Silva, Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne as they try to retain possession at the centre of the park and orchestrate some meaningful chances at the decisive end of the field. Both Silva and De Bruyne will fancy their chances of picking up a few assists against the Norfolk outfit that has conceded 70 goals in 37 league matches thus far.
Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Fernandinho will have to settle for a spot on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the second half if required.
Both Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez will focus on stretching the pitch out of the flanks while Gabriel Jesus tries to produce another goal-scoring performance as a centre-forward down the middle. All three Man City attackers can use this game to boost their confidence ahead of the UEFA Champions League’s resumption next month.
Phil Foden will make up the numbers on Guardiola’s bench and might get a chance to feature as an impact substitute if needed.
