This Sunday's match versus Arsenal is likely to be Norwich's City's final game in the Premier League - for the time being at least.

Over three seasons the club have played 113 games, winning 30 of them, drawing 34 and losing 49. They finished 12th and 11th in the first two seasons - with this year's final position still to be determined.

Manchester City 2 Norwich City 3

Free from the fear of relegation Norwich play with the sort of attacking abandon they rarely were able to replicate when it really mattered.
