Man City went into that first game with Tottenham Hotspur as favorites for both the match and the title, but slumped to a 1-0 defeat. It's far too early to write off their chances of taking a second consecutive championship, of course, but they'll need to step up their game here.

The champions will still be without some key players for this game, though, with Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden both sidelined. On the plus side, German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has recovered from a knock picked up in that defeat against Spurs and plays, as does £100m summer signing Jack Grealish.

But elsewhere, manager Pep Guardiola rings the changes, with Aymeric Laporte, Kyle Walker, Rodri, Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva all recalled.

Norwich City have a full squad to choose from, including summer arrivals Billy Gilmour, Josh Sargent, Christos Tzolis and Angus Gunn. Gilmour, on loan from Chelsea, started in the Canaries' opening defeat against Liverpool and does so again here, with the other three again on the bench.

Much will depend on whether Norwich forward Teemu Pukki can find his goalscoring boots, and whether he gets the right kind of service from the likes of Gilmour and Todd Cantwell. Against Liverpool, the Canaries only managed a paltry three shots on target, and if they want to put an end to a run of 11 straight Premier League defeats, that will need to change here. 

Here's how they line up:

Norwich City: Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis, Lees-Melou, Gilmour, Rupp, Cantwell, Pukki, Rashica.

SubstitutesGunn, Omobamidele, Dowell, Tzolis, Sorensen, McLean, Sargent, Mumba, Idah.

Manchester City: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Walker, Gundogan, Rodri, Grealish, Silva, Torres, Jesus.

Substitutes: Steffen, Ake, Zinchenko, Mendy, Fernandinho, Sterling, Mahrez, Doyle, Palmer.
