Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has claimed Saturday's trip to Norwich will be harder than the derby clash with Manchester United later this month.

City cut United's lead at the top to five points on Wednesday and will slash it to two if they win at Carrow Road. However, Mancini is wary about the trip to East Anglia which comes just three days after the victory over West Brom.

"United is easy," he said. "We could lose or we could win but it is an easy game. Against United or Chelsea, our concentration will be 100%. Norwich will be really tough because we have only had two days to recover after West Brom."
