City headed into the game off the back of a horrible defeat at home to Brentford, where Lasse Vibe’s first-half brace did the damage and rendered Nelson Oliveira’s late goal a mere consolation.
Meanwhile Birmingham remained routed to the foot of the table as they drew 1-1 at Sunderland, finishing with 10 men following Sam Gallagher’s second booking.
City’s festive four continue on Saturday with another relegation-threatened side in Burton Albion as Norwich head for the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday (3pm), before welcoming in 2018 with a visit to Carrow Road from Millwall on New Year’s Day (3pm).
