The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's defeat at home to Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror: “City attacked with deadly venom, passed with intelligence and defended when they had to against a Norwich team who matched them for spirit.”

The Mail on Sunday: “If there was a shred of doubt remaining that City would fight tooth and nail to push United to the wire in the title race, it was extinguished on a bright Norfolk afternoon.”

The Observer: “A feature of Lambert’s success . . . has been his ability to make telling switches, and his substitutions at half-time enabled Norwich to claw their way back.”

The Sunday Times: “After the match, Tevez walked out of a television interview when he was asked whether he had dived when he was booked for simulation.”

The People: “With 18 minutes left, Roberto Mancini’s men stepped on the gas and three goals in seven minutes left the Canaries flapping.”
