Norwich City can halt Manchester City's Premier League title challenge with a victory on home turf this weekend.

Norwich City can go level on points with Liverpool if they clinch a victory over Premier League title chasers Manchester City.

Paul Lambert is expected to keep Steve Morison and Grant Holt up front when they take on the North West side at Carrow Road on Saturday.

While Andrew Surman is in contention to start for the Canaries, Elliot Bennett could snatch the spot on the wing for the former Championship side with Jonny Howson and Wes Hoolahan holding firm in midfield.

Meanwhile, Man City have renewed hope of clinching the domestic title after defeating West Bromwich Albion 4-0, while Manchester United slipped to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Wigan Athletic.

Roberto Mancini could bring in Samir Nasri over Carlos Tevez, despite the Argentina international's goal against the Baggies last night, with Edin Dzeko starting up front while Mario Balotelli remains suspended.

Current form:

Norwich: DLWLDW
Man City: WWDDLW

Possible lineups:

Norwich: Ruddy; Drury, Ryan Bennett, Ward, Martin; Pilkington, Hoolahan, Howson, Elliot Bennett; Morison, Holt

Man City: Hart; Kolarov, Lescott, Kompany, Zabaleta; Silva, De Jong, Barry, Nasri; Aguero, Dzeko

Sports Mole says: 2-0
