Manchester City  nearly were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Newcastle in midweek but a strong willed extra time push saw the side come to life just in time to stave off a second straight disappointing defeat.
Manuel Pellegrini  will be expecting his players to pick themselves up in light of last week's league loss to Chelsea and the visiting Canaries could be in for a tough night as City will be looking to assure that they do not lose a second straight league match.
Costel Pantilimon is believed in line to keep his place in the first team as Joe Hart has struggled with his form all season and could once again find a cold seat on the substitutes bench reserved for him.
Vicnent Kompany continues to be listed as doubtful for the match and despite last weekend's game winning goal from Fernando Torres being also blamed on Matija Nastasic, the young defender is expected to partner Martin Demichelis once again.
City have not lost at home this season and Sergio Aguero has scored four times in his three games against the visiting Canaries which will make him the man to watch as the club look to keep their impressive form in Manchester.
