Having eight players out of the clash, Daniel Farke in the build-up to the match noted that a win would be like scaling Mount Everest without tools and Norwich City did exactly that with a 3-2 win over Manchester City.
After all the talk about Norwich City's injuries that prompted manager Daniel Farke to name two goalkeepers in the substitute bench, the Canaries took a surprise lead in the 18th minute when a corner was delivered into the box that saw Kenny McLean rise without being challenged to plant his header into the top corner.
Norwich were not done unpacking the surprises as they doubled their lead 10 minutes later when a brilliant counter-attack was launched that ended in Teemu Pukki feeding the ball to Todd Cantwell who had a gaping goal in front of him to tap home the second.
Sergio Aguero eased Pep Guardiola's half time team talk when he pulled one back for City as Bernardo Silva found a little pocket of space out on the left and curled a perfect ball onto the head of Aguero, who plants a header into the bottom right corner.
Just as in similar fashion to the first half Norwich scored another goal early on, this time needing just five minutes after the restart when they capitalized on juvenile defending by City after Nicolas Otamendi was caught in possession by Buendia who squared the ball to Pukki to net his first of the game.
The relentless pressure by City lead to a goal in the 88th minute when from the corner, Jesus scampered left to right across the face of the box then lays the ball off to Rodri, who rakes a low shot through a thicket of players and into the bottom left.
Manchester City will be looking to pick themselves up in the UEFA Champions League where they face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday 18th September while Norwich City next face Burnley on Saturday 21st September.
