Manchester City seemed streets ahead of their Premier League competitors before Monday's game with Chelsea, though the Citizens suffered a shock defeat at the Etihad to stay second in the table. They're now level on points with their principal challengers Chelsea, while Arsenal continue to defy expectations to sit a couple of points ahead at the top of the league.
However, City shouldn't have a problem getting back to winning ways this weekend, as they travel to play Chris Hughton's Norwich City. The Canaries are caught up right in the messy relegation scrap; currently just a couple of points outside of the bottom three. If they manage to pick up anything on Saturday, they'll be delighted.
They'll be without Elliott Bennett, Jonny Howson and Michael Turner through injury, while Ryan Bennett will have to shake off a thigh injury if he's going to play. City are still without three important first-team regulars in Sergio Agüero, Fernandinho and Samir Nasri, and Norwich will no doubt be praying that Manuel Pellegrini sticks with footballing impostor Martín Demichelis in midfield.
Norwich City injuries and suspensions
Out: Elliott Bennett (knee), Jonny Howson (back), Michael Turner (hamstring). In doubt: Ryan Bennett (thigh).
Manchester City injuries and suspensions
