Group Football Editor Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' fine 2-1 FA Cup fourth round win at Burnley.

Here is Paddy's verdict on Daniel Farke's men, who progressed to the FA Cup fifth round with an uplifting victory at Turf Moor.

- Ralf Fahrmann

Rare chance to impress. Superb sprawling stop from Jay Rodriguez early on. Calm and composed for the most part although appeared reluctant to deal with corners swung under his bar. 7

- Sam Byram

Denied a first Norwich goal by James Tarkowski's goalline clearance. Counter-attacking threat. Combative in the tackle. 7

- Christoph Zimmermann

Important in that final quarter when Burnley tried to test for aerial vulnerability. Levered off it too easily by Chris Wood for Rodriguez's first half chance. 6

- Grant Hanley (C)

Thumping header to open the scoring. Took a booking for the team. Another shift that made a compelling case for inclusion on a regular basis. 8

- Jamal Lewis

Caught by the ball slipped inside for Burnley's riposte. Much better outing that his previous shift at Turf Moor. 6

- Tom Trybull

Allowed Maro Vrancic the freedom to roam. Should have done better with the Clarets' goal. 6

- Mario Vrancic

Let us gloss over the weak clearing header slapped home by Erik Pieters. Before that was two exquisite deliveries that created both Norwich goals. The vision and the execution for the pass to Lukas Rupp was the moment of the game. 8

- Lukas Rupp

Key role in the Norwich winner. Progressive outlet down the right. Looks a very intelligent operator. 7

- Marco Stiepermann

Lack of conviction in the second half chance. Sloppy in possession for a spell prior to his replacement by Ondrej Duda. 6

- Onel Hernandez

Saw plenty of the ball in the first half. Brought a fine, flying stop from Joe Hart with a rising strike from the edge of the box. 7

- Josip Drmic

Predatory instincts brought him a close range tap in. But the radar was off from his first spurned chance with seven seconds gone. Useful minutes in the bank and now needs an injury-free run. 7

City substitutes

- Ondrej Duda n/a

(for Marco Stiepermann, 82)

- Kenny McLean n/a

(for Onel Hernandez, 85)

- Teemu Pukki n/a

(for Josip Drmic, 88)
