Norwich frustrate Manchester City in 0-0 draw

first_imgManchester City’s title hopes suffered a major blow as Norwich secured a goalless draw that could enhance their bid for survival.Manuel Pellegrini’s side bossed the proceedings for long spells but they rarely troubled Canaries stopper John Ruddy and are now nine points behind leaders Leicester having won just two of their last 11 league matches on the road.It was a real missed opportunity for the Citzens who had hoped to crank up the pressure on the frontrunners ahead of their match with Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United on Monday night.Instead, the Foxes can extend their lead to 12 points over City with a victory against the Magpies, which would surely be too much ground for them to make up with nine games to play.—last_img
