Newly-promoted Norwich host Premier League champions Manchester City in Saturday’s late kick-off as talkSPORT’s GameDay special finishes with a flourish.
The sides are at opposite ends of the table with Norwich second from bottom and City only behind Liverpool at the top.
Daniel Farke’s side have impressed so far this season despite their three defeats while in-form striker Teemu Pukki has been superb.
But the Canaries face a huge test against a City this weekend who have netted 14 times in their opening four games.

Norwich vs Man City: What has been said?
Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke: “Sometimes when you have many muscle injuries, you have to look at doing something different in training.
“But these injuries are so unlucky. We cannot complain too much. We won’t cry, it’s tricky, but we will try to search for some solutions.”
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: “We have played four games, which is nothing. Now we start the real competition, we play Saturday, we travel to Ukraine Monday and play Wednesday, we land Thursday afternoon and Saturday we have the Premier League and then go to Preston.
“The next five games [in all competitions], four are away. Many things can happen, we have had two terrible injuries with Leroy [Sane] and Aymeric [Laporte] so we will see.”
