Norwich City slumped to a 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, as the reigning champions proved too strong.
City's daunting start to their Premier League campaign continued against Pep Guardiola's superstars, after a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at Carrow Road during the opening weekend.
The hosts reclaimed their crown from Liverpool last season but were beaten by Chelsea in the Champions League final and have lost both of their opening games 1-0, despite the £100million addition of England midfielder Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.
The Citizens were beaten by Leicester at Wembley in the Community Shield and then at Tottenham in their top-flight opener on Sunday, as the transfer saga around Harry Kane continued.
Thye match is a 3pm kick-off, with the Etihad Stadium welcoming a full capacity for the first time since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic forced football into changes in March 2020.
