NORWICH – An injury-ravaged Norwich City outclassed champions Manchester City 3-2 in the Premier League on Saturday with striker Teemu Pukki scoring one and setting up another for a famous win at Carrow Road.
Eleven players were sidelined for Norwich, with many suffering injuries during the international break, but that did not stop the promoted side from handing Pep Guardiola's men their first loss of the season.
Norwich took the lead in the 18th minute from a corner floated in towards the near post which was headed home by Kenny McLean for his first ever Premier League goal.
They doubled the lead from a counter-attack when Pukki carried the ball forward and attracted the attention of City defender Kyle Walker and Ederson before teeing up an unmarked Todd Cantwell who tapped the ball into an empty net.
Sergio Aguero halved the lead at the stroke of halftime when he found space between the two centre backs and nodded home Bernardo Silva's cross to maintain his run of scoring in every league game so far this season.
