Canaries boss Chris Hughton, though, remained positive despite a second home loss in a week, after Chelsea ran out 1-0 winners in Norfolk on Boxing Day.
Chris Hughton: “Manchester City showed why they spend the amount of money they do for the offensive players they have, but you can’t be 2-0 down so early on and expect to have a good day.
“However, we displayed great character and certainly at 4-3 it seemed it might be going our way, but again they showed real good quality.
“I cannot fault the endeavour of the players we have got, so now we will look to go again.
"In the build-up to their second goal, there was a foul by Vincent Kompany in midfield, which was disappointing.
“On the sending off, there was certainly a coming together of heads and some movement, now whether that was enough for a sending off. if the referee has given it for that reason, was it a bit harsh? Probably yes.”
