Premier League champions Manchester City bounced back from their unimpressive defeat at Tottenham Hotspur by humbling newly promoted club Norwich City at home in one of the week two games played on Saturday. Norwich City are back in the top flight after winning the Championship title but they were on the receiving end of a thrashing at the hands of the champions.
Manchester City hit the back of the Norwich City net five times to record their first win of the season at the second time of asking.

Ukraine national team star Zinchenko has been the first choice left-back at Manchester City over the past months and he continued his fine form against the Toffees at the weekend. Everton had no answers to the questions posed by Manchester City especially in the final minutes of the game and that led to the goals from Ilkay Gundogan on 84 minutes and Kevin De Bruyne in added time.
