We've chosen our Norwich City Man of the Match against Crystal Palace - now it's time for you to vote for yours.

Which Norwich City player performed the best in the lacklustre 1-0 Premier League defeat at Crystal Palace?

Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

Norwich failed to make it three wins on the spin in the top flight to move seven points clear of third-from-bottom Sunderland to prolong their wretched record against the Eagles at Selhurst Park.

Jason Puncheon's 68th minute curled winner from the edge of the area separated the sides in a nervy affair low on quality.

Norwich's miserable afternoon was capped by a first-half knee injury to Timm Klose.

Klose had again started in dominant fashion but Ryan Bennett had to shoulder extra responsibility when the Swiss international departed and could have earned City a point when his volley was pushed away by Wayne Hennessey shortly after Puncheon's intervention.

Martin Olsson offered a productive counter-attacking outlet in the first period but failed to track Puncheon's run and dart off the right flank for the goal. Jonny Howson and Gary O'Neil were solid again in central midfield, although the duo had to get through too much defensive work when the contest became increasingly stretched in the final quarter.

Andre Wisdom and Robbie Brady were also decent performers on a day when Norwich never carried enough attacking threat in the final third.

Norwich City Correspondent Paddy Davitt went for Howson, who continues to be a consistent performer key to Norwich's survival hopes over the tense run-in.

The result as of 10:30pm on Sunday will be published in Monday's Pink Un alongside Paddy's choice.

The poll will then continue to run online throughout the week.
