Manager Manuel Pellegrini decided the time had come to leave out Hart after a number of errors this season, preferring Romanian Costel Pantilimon in his place.
Hart is relegated to the substitutes' bench while City, again without injured captain Vincent Kompany, have Matija Nastasic and Martin Demichelis in central defence.
Norwich make two changes from last week's draw with Cardiff as Steven Whittaker and Bradley Johnson replace the injured Alex Tettey and Robert Snodgrass.
