Premier League:Sterling’s hat-trick ; Manchester City Beat Norwich 4-0

by Kolkata Today

Raheem Sterling scored a perfect hat-trick as Manchester City beat Norwich City 4-0 to extend their lead to 12 points.

Bernardo Silva hit a post during an open start at Carrow Road, before Grant Hanley’s header also struck the woodwork at the other end.

Raheem Sterling has been involved in 10 goals in his last eight Premier League games against Norwich (eight goals, two assists).
There was a notable milestone for Pep Guardiola, who celebrated the 550th win of his management career – the perfect boost ahead of Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League last-16 game against Sporting.

Sterling broke the deadlock just after the half-hour, curling in his eighth league goal of the season with his right foot.
It was 2-0 three minutes into the second half as Phil Foden scrambled the ball over the line at the second attempt.

Milot Rashica worked Ederson on the counter as Norwich looked for a way back before Ruben Dias teed up Sterling to head in with 20 minutes remaining.

The winger claimed his fifth Premier League hat-trick by tapping in from close range with his left foot after his initial penalty had been saved by Angus Gunn in the final minute.

Manchester City have scored the opening goal in 19
different Premier League matches this season, going on to win every single one of them.

Manchester City are 15 league matches without defeat on 63 points.

Norwich stay 18th, one point adrift of Newcastle United and safety, having played two matches more.

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling said ,”It’s football, you’re going to get chances. You have to keep going and getting in the right areas, keep shooting and the goals will come.

After match Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”In general this was a good performance. We arrived here at the best moment for Norwich in terms of their results and confidence.”
