Man City head to Norwich for the first time since Delia rant
RALLYING CALL ... Roberto Mancini

ROBERTO MANCINI issued a rallying cry Delia Smith would have been proud of for Manchester City’s lunch date at Norwich.

On their last visit to Carrow Road in 2005, queen of cookery Delia took the mic to give a rambling half-time speech.

She shouted: “Where are you? Let’s be ’avin’ you! Come on!” at the crowd.

It turned out to be a recipe for disaster as her team lost 3-2 to a last-gasp Robbie Fowler goal and were eventually relegated.

Mancini made more sense — but reckons the title crunch against United later this month is ‘easy’ compared to Norwich away.

He said: “This will be the toughest match from now until the end. We’re playing again after two days.

"Compared to this, the derby against United is easy because when you play United, Chelsea, the pressure is 100 per cent.

“We don’t have a problem with it at this moment — the problem is Norwich.

“You can think it’s an easy game. It will be a really tough game as we have so little time to recover from West Brom.”

A rare away win for City would cut Manchester United’s lead to just two points.

Relaxed City boss Mancini says the pressure is now on the champions. He smiled when asked about United coach Rene Meulensteen’s suggestions that City do not have the spirit to take their Prem crown.
