EPL: Newly-promoted Norwich end Man City’s eight-month unbeaten run [See all results & Table]

Newly-promoted Norwich City stunned Manchester City with a 3-2 win at Carrow Road on Saturday to inflict a first Premier League defeat on the champions since January.

Kenny McLean, Todd Cantwell and the prolific Teemu Pukki took advantage of a ragged City defence without the injured Aymeric Laporte for a remarkable upset.

Sergio Aguero’s header just before the break hinted at a Manchester City comeback but a misunderstanding between John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi saw Buendia rob the Argentina centre-back and set up Pukki to score.
