Ten minutes after, Todd Cantwell slotted in Norwich’s second goal, with Teemu Pukki assisting.

It was unbelievable.

Sergio Aguero, however, reduced the lead when he scored for City late in the first half.

In the second half, Norwich increased their lead to 3-1 with another goal by Teemu Pukki, five minutes after the resumption of play.

Pep Guardiola was stunned. And he had to make substitutions, throwing in Riyad Mahrez among others.

But the counter-pressure paid off when Rodrigo scored for City, his first goal for the club, reducing the scoreline to 3-2.

Despite the added time of four minutes, Manchester City failed to force a draw.

It was the first time Manchester City lost to a promoted side under Pep and also the second time the team conceded twice in the opening half-hour of a Premier League game.
