An advance glance at the football form book suggested that this should be a routine win and so it proved.

Fifty weeks have now passed since the Blues last tasted the sharp bitterness of defeat at home - 24 wins, 2 draws and 71 goals scored – and by all sane measures, bar the law of Sod, the Canaries were never going to tarnish that proud achievement.

‘Typical City’ might have given another full house a few flutters but this is ‘Roberto Mancini’s City’ and that’s an entirely different beast to the ever so slightly schizophrenic versions of more recent times.

An instinctive strike from Sergio Aguero in the 32nd minute supplemented by a slightly comical effort from Samir Nasri set the seal on another three points and maintained City’s ferocious pace atop the Barclays Premier League.
