Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon will make his Premier League debut in place of Joe Hart, who has been dropped after a series of high-profile mistakes. Stevan Jovetic and Javi Garcia suffered injuries in midweek, while Vincent Kompany (thigh) remains sidelined.Norwich pair Alexander Tettey and Ricky van Wolfswinkel miss out with respective knee and foot injuries.Robert Snodgrass (concussion) and Nathan Redmond (hip) are also doubts. Even Norwich die-hards must be fearing a Manchester City backlash after Manuel Pellegrini ripped into his team following the careless defeat at Chelsea. City must stop making the sort of basic defensive mistakes that have cost five goals so far. They looked subdued in the midweek Capital One Cup win at Newcastle and they really need a convincing league victory. They're facing Norwich at just the right time for that.
Chris Hughton's men are on a desperate run; 27 points from their last 30 games is relegation form. Eight away points from a possible 42 is atrocious. Luck has deserted them, but the defence collapsed against Chelsea, at Arsenal and again at Manchester United in the week.
This particular fixture has averaged over six goals per game over the last two seasons. I can only see the home side scoring this time. Norwich are really struggling in front of goal.
The 2012 champions haven't failed to score at the Etihad for the last 54 games. They've only dropped 16 home points from 49 games there, winning all four this season and nine of their last 10. Norwich's 3-2 victory in May is their only setback in that run.
If the visitors repeat that win, Manchester City will be all but out of the title race. But I just can't see it happening. Norwich don't have enough top quality in-form defenders to snuff out Sergio Aguero - who has six goals in four games - the creativity of David Silva and the surging runs from deep of Yaya Toure.
There are still serious questions to be answered by Pellegrini. In the absence of the vital Vincent Kompany, why has there been no place for Joleon Lescott? He has to be better than Javi Garcia or the rusty Martin Demichelis. Why do players of sublime skill disappear so alarmingly away from home?
At Eastlands though, it's a different story. They're almost unbeatable. Norwich are sluggish in the opening exchanges and by the time they settle fast-starting City will be into their stride and will surely have the game won. If there's any other result then it'll be Pellegrini facing a backlash.

Their four Premier League meetings in the past two seasons have produced a total of 25 goals, an average of 6.25 per game.
Norwich ended a seven-match winless streak against City in all competitions with a 3-2 away victory on the final day of last season.

Manchester City
City have won all four home games in the Premier League this season, and nine of their last 10 dating back to February. The only exception was the 3-2 defeat by Norwich in May.
The 2012 title winners have scored in each of their last 54 Premier League matches at the Etihad Stadium.
They are vying to avoid back-to-back league defeats for the first time since October 2010. It's the first time in five years they have lost at least three of their first nine matches.
Manuel Pellegrini's side have made five errors leading directly to a goal this season, more than any other team.
Sergio Aguero has scored in four successive league matches for the first time in his City career, amassing six goals in that spell. He has four goals in three Premier League starts against Norwich.

Norwich City
Norwich have only scored four times in their last eight league games and have six goals in total - the joint-worst record in the top flight.
They are the only team yet to score a goal in the first half hour of a Premier League game this season.
Last weekend, Norwich had 31 shots in the goalless draw against Cardiff - the most by any side in a Premier League game this season.
Forwards Johan Elmander, Gary Hooper and Ricky van Wolfswinkel have managed a total of only six shots on target so far.
The Canaries have lost 10 of their last 14 away games in the league, amassing just eight points out of a possible 42.
