Norwich City arrested Manchester City’s push for the Premier League title on Saturday, sharing the spoils with the former champion after a goalless at Carrow Road.
Patrick Bamford rattled the crossbar with a powerful half-volley as the home side ended the first half as the stronger side.
City failed to rally despite having the lions share of possession and rarely troubled John Ruddy in the second half, as the Canaries held on for a vital point.
Norwich played their hearts out soaking attacks after attacks and ensuring that they kept City’s frontline at bay.
Manchester City, 4th on the table with 51 points are now nine points away from League leaders, Leicester City, who have 60 points. Tottenham are second with 55points and Arsenal third with 52 points. There are still nine matches to go.
And there are also at least four teams in hot pursuit of the leaders for the first four slots. They are West Ham United, Manchester United, Liverpool and Stoke City.
