  1. Thanks for all your emails and Tweets, sorry I couldn't publish them all. Do stick around for all the post-match reports and interviews.

  2. What a match at Carrow Road - a great advert for the Premier League they say. Norwich kept on battling and showed the kind of spirit that will serve them well in the second half of the season. Man City though had just enough for the win to end a memorable 2012 on a high.

  3. 90+7

    Full time: Norwich 3 Manchester City 4

  4. 90+4

    Snodgrass puts a cross in from the right, Lescott's header rebounds off Nastasic but falls gratefully into the arms of Hart.

  5. 90+2

    Final change for City as Aguero walks off and is replaced by Javi Garcia.

  6. 90+1

    A Norwich free-kick is cleared towards Aguero, who powers forward despite being all on his own and firing in a shot that Bunn does well to save.

  7. 90

    There will be five minutes of added time.

  8. 90

    The Norwich fans are frustrated again as Nastasic stays down following a challenge by Martin. They feel the City player is making the most of things in order to wind down the clock.

  9. 88

    Man City looking to close the game out now, a sloppy challenge from Garrido on Milner concedes a free-kick near the corner flag.

  10. 86

    Bassong heads a free kick down towards Turner in the box, but he can't quite swivel and get his shot on goal, the ball spinning out for a goal kick.

  11. 84

    Anthony Pilkington is booked for dissent, he wasn't happy with Man City taking their time over a corner.

  12. 83

    Wonderful save by Bunn! Great play by Toure in the build-up, he sets up Aguero, whose powerful drive is tipped over the bar.

  13. 82

    Now we do see that change, as Edin Dzeko is replaced by Joleon Lescott.

  14. 80

    We are in for a grandstand finish here as Turner is sent forward to play upfront by Canaries boss Chris Hughton. Man City need to show why they are champions in these closing stages.

  15. 78

    Man City were about to make a substitution prior to that Norwich corner, with Joleon Lescott stripped off and ready. However, once the goal went in he was told to sit back down.

  16. 75

    What a game as the Canaries fight back yet again! Man City fail to clear a corner, the ball is fired back into the six yard box by Johnson and Russell Martin deflects the ball - via Joe Hart's head - into the net.

  17. 75

    Goal for Norwich!! Martin!!

  18. 74

    Change for Norwich: Wes Hoolahan is replaced by Simeon Jackson.

  19. 73

    Pilkington is penalised for a shirt pull on Milner inside the Man City penalty area, free-kick to the visitors.

  20. 71

    Norwich, to their credit, are coming forward again, but surely they have too much to do?
