Norwich City put on the performance of a generation on Saturday evening, when they defeated a footballing super power in the shape of Manchester City.

Bank rolled by the Royal family of the United Arab Emirates, so effectively owned by a country and with the first squad to cost over £1 billion, they have an embarrassment of riches in all departments.

They have the best Head Coach in the world, Pep Guardiola and his assistants are all the best that can be hired.

Pep has the best forwards too with Raheem Sterling, arguably the Premier League’s best player (at the moment), Sergio Aguero, one of the all-time great Premier League strikers and those two are supported by Bernardo and David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.

In defence, he has a few issues though.

I’ve never really thought that Kyle Walker was quite good enough for this team. He has always relied on his pace far too much and his passing is often wayward, as it was here.

The defensive pairing of Stones and Otamendi looked like they’d barely ever played together before and that will be something the great Pep has to work on.

There’s been plenty written about both teams over the weekend but what did the fans think?

There’s only one way to find out, let’s have a trawl through the Twittersphere…

  • Can’t argue with you guys. I’ve been watching City since 1962, my second game was against Norwich, and I thought you guys were hungry and wanted it. Man City looked as if they thought they just had to turn up. When will they realise nothing is easy in this Premier League? They did the same against Palace last season. There is no divine right to win. It has to be earned. Enter Norwich City. Well done!
