The result saw also saw City lose their 20 game unbeaten run and top spot in the Premier League and the club will be keen to avoid back to back defeats for the first time since 2010.

They face a Norwich side that has won just one of their last 9 games and currently sits two points and three places above the relegation zone.

Despite the summer acquisition of Ricky van Wolfswinkle and Gary Hopper goals have proved hard to come by for the Canaries with just 19 in total scored this season and three so far in 2014.

While goals have proved problematic manager Chris Hughton moved to shore up the defence in the transfer window with former Everton defender Joseph Yobo joining the club from Fenerbahce.

The Nigerian star is set to make his debut Ryan Bennett is doubtful with a thigh problem and fellow defender Michael Turner (hamstring) out.

Midfielder Jonny Howson (back) is almost ready to return to action while Wes Hoolahan will hope to feature after failing to leave the club in January.

Despite Norwich’s struggles Hughton is relishing the prospect of pitting his wits against Pellegrini.

“Manchester City can score goals at will,” he said. “But it’s a really good challenge for us. We have to put everything together and look forward to it.”

City meanwhile will be without Fernandinho (thigh) and Samir Nasri (knee) along with Sergio Aguero and Javi Garcia (knock).

The absence of Aguero will put the pressure of Alvaro Negredo. The former Seville man has managed just two goals away from home in the league this season.
