Full-time: It's over! Norwich inflict a famous defeat on Manchester City!
Tense times for Norwich as Jesus lets fly from the edge of the box but Krul is behind it to make the save. The hosts are almost there...
Save! Brilliant feet from Aguero as he turns his marker but his shot is poor and Krul saves it comfortably.
There will be FOUR minutes of added time to play!
- OffMarco StiepermannNorwich City
- OnDennis SrbenyNorwich City
Norwich sub: Dennis Srbeny takes the place of Stiepermann.
- GoalRodriManchester City
GOAAAAALLLLLLL! Norwich 3-2 Man City: Oh, what have we here? Hope for City after all! Rodri scores his first goal for the club with a powerful shot from 20 yards. Krul got a hand to it but couldn't keep it out. Game on!
Save! Krul with a reaction stop to deny Otamendi's far-post header. But Norwich have another corner to defend now.
- Yellow cardTodd CantwellNorwich City
Yellow card: A tired tackle from Cantwell on Walker sees the referee produce his fourth booking of the day.
Jesus wriggles through a crowd of bodies but he can't get his shot away. Norwich are defending for their lives. Six minutes to go...
- OffEmiliano BuendiaNorwich City
- OnJosip DrmicNorwich City
Norwich sub: Buendia is given a rousing reception as he is replaced by Josip Drmic.
Pukki draws the foul from Walker as Norwich continue to eat as much time as possible. We're into the last 10 minutes...
Aguero misses! It's certainly not the Argentine's day. Sterling lifts a cross into the box but Aguero gets too much on his header and it's over the bar. That's the second gilt-edged chance he's missed today.
Jurgen Klopp will be somewhere in the North West with a huge smile on his face. As it stands, the Reds will remain five points clear at the top of the league.
There are rumblings on Twitter that this could be City's worst performance in years. They have 15 minutes to make a comeback, but it looks very unlikely.
- OffBernardo SilvaManchester City
- OnRiyad MahrezManchester City
Man City sub: A final roll of the dice from Pep as Mahrez replaces Bernardo in attack.
Byram makes a superb challenge to prevent City's counter-attack, prompting huge cheers from the adoring home crowd. What a performance by the Canaries.
- Yellow cardBernardo SilvaManchester City
Yellow card: Frustration creeping into City's game, as Bernardo chops down Buendia and goes into the book.
Another City corner, but it's the same end result. De Bruyne's delivery is met by Otamendi whose powerful header is caught by Krul.
Can you believe it?
- Yellow cardKenny McLeanNorwich City
Yellow card: McLean goes into the book for a foul on Rodri on the right.
De Bruyne trying his best to drag City back into this but his team mates aren't quite on the same wavelength. The Belgian's teasing cross is aimed for Stones but Krul does well to pluck it from the sky.
Corner, after corner, after corner, but still Norwich hang on. This would be a famous victory for the Canaries, right at the very top of their list, but there is a long, long way to go.
Aguero wriggles his way into the box but his shot is deflected behind for a corner. De Bruyne whips it in, but it's just too high for Otamendi and Norwich concede another corner.
- OffDavid SilvaManchester City
- OnGabriel JesusManchester City
The double switch is made as the anonymous Gundogan is replaced by De Bruyne and Jesus comes on in place of David Silva.
There is no doubt that City have the quality to get back into the game and they're preparing Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne.
City have few flaws in a record-breaking team but their over reliance on Laporte has already been underlined. The centre-back has been ruled out for six months with injury and Pep Guardiola must be wishing it was already February.
- GoalTeemu PukkiNorwich City
GOAAAALLLLLL! Norwich 3-1 Man City: The hosts restore their two-goal lead, but City only have themselves to blame. This is shocking from Pep's side. Stones plays it casually to Otamendi, he is too ponderous on the ball and Buendia steals in, robs him of the ball and slips it to Pukki who slots it home!
Could history repeat itself?
He was the catalyst of City's breakthrough and now Bernardo is given too much space to cross from the left, once more. This time it finds a Norwich defender.
- 2nd Half
Man City get the ball rolling in the second half. No De Bruyne yet, he's kept in reserve for now.
- End of 1st Half
Half time: Wow, what entertainment so far! Norwich deservedly lead at the break. Pep will be fuming but how crucial could Aguero's goal at the end there prove to be?
- Yellow cardSam ByramNorwich City
Yellow card: Byram goes into the book for a foul on Bernardo on the flank.
- GoalSergio AgüeroManchester City
GOAAAALLLL! Norwich 1-2 Man City: Awful time to concede for the hosts, but relief for Man City - they have one back. Aguero slips in between two Norwich defenders to head home from Bernardo Silva's cross.
Do not be surprised if De Bruyne comes on at the start of the second half. Gundogan has been non-existent.
Norwich continue to defend superbly as Byram rises highest to clear Bernardo Silva's cross from the right. So far, so good from the Canaries. They deserve this two-goal lead.
David Silva runs to the near post to meet Gundogan's corner delivery but he doesn't get his angles right and it's well wide from the Spaniard.
No penalty! Buendia's resultant corner delivery causes chaos in the Man City box, the ball strikes the arm of Stones, but it was accidental and the referee allows play to continue as the visitors clear their lines.
Without Laporte, Man City look very vulnerable at the back. And now they have another corner to defend...
Sterling whacks the post! Is it going to be one of those days, Manchester City? David Silva crosses to Bernardo at the back post, he heads it across goal and somehow Sterling sees his shot come back off the woodwork.
Who could have predicted this? Walker thought the goal should have been ruled out for offside, but it was in fact the City full-back playing them on.
- GoalTodd CantwellNorwich City
GOAAAAALLLL! Norwich 2-0 Man City: You won't believe this! Buendia carves open City's defence with a lovely pass to Pukko on the right, and suddenly Norwich are in a really promising position. Instead of shooting, the forward selfishly rolls it across the face of goal and Cantwell taps it into an empty net. Textbook football on the break.
Miss! Sterling gets past Byram, curls a cross to the far post where Aguero is ready and waiting. Unusually, the Argentine can't find the target. Should have done better, even if the angle was against him.
Norwich should have a free-kick, perhaps, as Stones brings Cantwell down on the left, but Kevin Friend isn't interest and allows play to continue.
Sterling loses Byram at the byline but his cross is too close to Krul who gathers at his near post.
Norwich are leading! Don't believe me...? Check this out.
Man City are seeking an immediate response. A cross finds Sterling on the edge of the box, he drops a shoulder to create an angle but bends his shot well wide.
- GoalKenny McLeanNorwich City
GOAAAALLLLL! Norwich 1-0 Man City: Wow! Norwich lead! Buendia sends his corner deliver to the near post where McLean, who has lost his marker, heads it from close range, giving Ederson no chance!
Byram's cross is blocked by Otamendi, as Norwich win their first corner of the game. The crowd are right behind the home side.
Pukki heads it to Stipermann, who switches it to Buendia on the right. Byram keeps it alive but then Stiepermann sees his pass aimed for Pukki intercepted by Otamendi.
In fairness to Norwich, they aren't prepared to sacrifice their style of free-flowing passing football in the Premier League. It may be dangerous but the way they can pass it out from the back against the champions is so refreshing.
Aguero works it to Sterling on the left of a crowded penalty area and his shot is blocked by a covering defender. Twelve minutes in and it's still 0-0. Norwich will be pleased.
Norwich conjure up a nice move, playing through the lines but the final pass is too far ahead of Pukki as Ederson rushes in to intercept with his hands.
Man City have settled quickly, knocking the ball around and generally dominating the play. How long can Norwich hold out for?
Norwich fans with the tried and tested: "Where were you when you were ****?" chants. The travelling supporters respond with "Champions of England". Football.
David Silva takes but it's a poor one and Krul claims it quite comfortably.
Man City are immediately on the front foot as David Silva wins a corner after a driving run from midfield.
- 1st Half
Kick-off: There is a raucous atmosphere at Carrow Road as the game gets underway!
It's the champions of the Premier League taking on the champions of the Championship, and it's LIVE, next!
Manchester City will hope to close the gap on leaders Liverpool, who beat Newcastle 3-1 earlier in the day, to two points, while Norwich will be keen to move out of the relegation zone, though it's going to be an almighty task.
Daniel Farke makes four enforced changes to his Norwich side. Sam Byram, Ibrahim Amadou, Kenny McLean and Alexander Tetty come in for the injured Max Aarons, Christoph Zimmermann, Tom Trybull and Moritz Leitner.
Bernardo Silva replaces Riyad Mahrez on the right of midfield, while John Stones replaces the injured Aymeric Laporte. Kevin De Bruyne returns to the bench.
