FT: Norwich 0-0 Man City. The Canaries hang on for a morale-boosting point after the Citizens dominated for long spells without creating enough in the attacking third. It's a major blow for Manuel Pellegrini's hopes of signing off from the Etihad with another title. The result sees Norwich move level on points with 17th-placed Sunderland, although they remain in the drop zone on goal difference. Man City cut the gap to leaders Leicester to nine points but knew that realistically they had to win to pile on the pressure.
Three minutes added. Man City pressing....
O'Neil's free kick is a poor one. Norwich keep it alive but the visitors eventually clear. Can Pellegrini's men find one last push?
Late chance for Norwich. O'Neil stands over a free kick on the right. Can they pinch it?
Aguero turns O'Neil and races towards the Norwich area before blazing over with a 25-yard strike. Man City surely out of time now...
A real goalmouth melee! Nervy times for Norwich. City keep the ball alive in the area wit Iheanacho and Sterling both having chances to shoot.... but it's eventually hacked away!
A point will move Norwich level with 17th-placed Sunderland, although the Canaries would remain in the dropzone on goal difference.
MAN CITY SUB: Zabaleta on for Sagna.
BIG CHANCE FOR NORWICH! Kompany's clearance cannons off a teammate, allowing Mbokani to race into the left side of the penalty area. The forward pulls it back for Dorrans who fires wide from 20 yards.
Norwich closing in on what would be a fantastic point.
It's now or never for Man City...
Great feet from Jarvis on the right. The winger holds off two men and manages to dig out a low cross that Kompany is forced to deal with.
Olsson hoists a free kick on the left into the Man City area. It's a rare chance for Norwich to ask a question but Kompany rises majestically and powers a header away.
One of those days for City and Kun... Will it change?
It's been all Man City in this half but they've rarely looked like scoring.
MAN CITY CHANGE: The ineffective Navas replaced by Iheanacho.
More pressure... but another corner fails to pick out a Manchester City head. Norwich hanging in there. The clock is ticking for the visitors.
Silva conjures up a lovely pass out wide to Navas as Sagna dragged Norwich inside. It's a chance to pick out someone in the middle but once again the Spanish winger fails to produce a decent delivery.
Howson booked for tripping the advancing Fernandinho.
The visitors are camped in the Norwich half. Kompany floats forward but his dinked pass over the top flies harmlessly through for a goal kick. Just what the doctor ordered for the Canaries.
