Editor's thoughts: Norwich's underdog win against the incumbent champions reminded me why I loved this game so much. It was super romantic that a club of Norwich's stature actually managed a win against the free-flowing superstars of Manchester City. If you missed the game, you must be wondering was Norwich that good or was Man City that bad? Well, personally, I thought it was a bit of both but the way Norwich played that day was pretty impressive. They made good use of the little possession they had and perfected their counter attacks. The goals were well taken and apart from the Otamendi mistake, the rest were pretty much down to their hard work. Pep Guardiola probably didn't think that Laporte's injury will be so much of an issue but it seems that Otamendi and Stones are not so capable of holding the fort in his absence. It's too soon to press the panic button but seeing Liverpool sitting pretty at the top of the table must sting and City will be keen to put this behind them and go for the kill in the next game.
