The Relegation Fight Just Got Juicy

First of all, a big well done today to City for their hard fought away win at The Hawthorns against West Brom, those three points have just made the relagtion fight very interesting

Today's win put us on 28 points and three points clear of the drop zone, with Newcastle & Sunderland playing each other tomorrow in the local derby, but with both of them having two games in hand., and Sunderland also having a superior goal difference as it stands.

The other result worthy of note today is Crystal Palace, they are now winless in 11 in the league having lost at home to Leicester today, and that leaves them only 5 points clear of City, and in a very poor run of form going into the home straight, and lets not forget, their next but one game is our impending visit to Selhurst Park, Pardew's team could suddenly find themselves fighting the drop having [reviously been well clear.

After two sterling performances in the space of a week I think most City fans would agree that maybe we're not as dead and buried as we thought we were, and maybe just maybe there is a hope for the mighty Canaries yet this season, one thing is for sure, Timm Klose is looking to be a very good investment, and if we had signed him in the summer i'm sure we would be in a much better position than we are.

Today's Key Stats:

  • Brady has now equalled his best ever Premier League goal record in a season (three, scored with Hull in 2013-14)
  • Jarvis provided his first assist in the Premier League since January 2014
  • Norwich became the final Premier League team to keep a clean sheet away from home this season
