  • Norwich 0 Man City 0. All over at Carrow Road and the spoils are shared. City miss the opportunity to return to top spot.

  • Van Wolfswinkel wins a corner off Kompany. Last chance to steal it. Norwich don't send many forward and City can clear their lines. Hosts happy to play the clock.

  • Late change by the hosts as Pilkington is withdrawn and Whittaker is sent on to see the game out.

  • Van Wolfswinkel bounces back to his feet and sets off after Toure. The City man did appear to clip his heels after he had already gone down.

  • Tame effort from Kolarov. He sets his sights from a long way out and sees his effort bobble well wide of the target. Van Wolfswinkel goes down holding his back.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • City rocking and look like they would take a point now. Norwich now looking to snatch all three.

  • Norwich now firmly on the front foot, with Hart having to dive forward and cut out another low cross. Pilkington then slips Zabaleta and gets onto his right foot. From a tight angle he fires inches over the top.

  • Ironic cheers from the home fans as Kompany plays a terrible pass out of play. Norwich so close to nicking something as they surge down their right. A low cross somehow evades everyone in the middle.

  • City win another corner. Navas takes. Ruddy comes through the crowd and punches rather unconvincingly. Should have been an easy take. He is let off the hook as Kolarov ends up drilling wide.

  • Norwich prepared to sit deep, invite pressure and put their bodies on the line. Away support trying to get something extra from their side.

  • Zabaleta trying to get something going. He makes it to by-line and forces Pilkington to slide the ball behind. Big men forward from the back again. Navas with another corner which fails to make the front post. Terrible time and again this afternoon.

  • Silva is freed into space 25 yards out on his left foot, but turns inside onto his right. City making some odd decisions. They keep pressing but Milner can only drill a scuffed cross into the chest of Ruddy.

  • Toure still playing on the toes of his back four. Zabaleta far more advanced as he gathers, but is forced square. Norwich with 11 men behind the ball now.

  • Tettey spreads pay out to Olsson, who does well to nod forward as Navas raises his boot. The City winger is soon on the ball and drifting into the box. A low cross-shot trickles wide of the target.

  • City try a training ground routine from the free-kick, but it fails miserably. Milner gets the ball back and despite, bring clipped by Van Wolfswinkel, delivers a cross which Dzeko nods down and over the top. Van Wolfswinkel cautioned for his lunge.

  • Kolarov sees a cross from the left loop up off Martin and into the hands of Ruddy, who is unchallenged. City come again and Kolaov is tripped by Tettey from behind. Yellow card comes out again.

  • Redmond teasing Clichy and whipping a cross into the arms of Hart. Indications that Norwich still feel they can nick this on the counter. Why shouldn't they feel like that? City aren't testing them at the other end.

  • Negredo not happy at being withdrawn. Seems a very negative call from a side supposedly chasing the title. They don't have many more forward-thinking options on the bench, but why pull one of your main strikers?

  • Negredo holds off Bassong to win another corner. Before it is taken, City replace Negredo with Kolarov? Strange call by Pellegrini. Set-piece touched on, but only into the hands of Ruddy.
