Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 1-0 win at Carrow Road.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who spoiled Jonny Howson’s Norfolk return.

• Angus Gunn

Another clean sheet for the collection. Some excellent distribution to turn defence into attack in the second period. 7.0

• Grant Hanley

Painful whack from Rudy Gestede in first half flashpoint. 7.0

• Christoph Zimmermann

Consistently performing now at Championship level. 7.0

• Timm Klose

Licence to get forward to a greater degree with a man advantage. Couple of vital clearing headers from Boro set pieces. 7.0

• Harrison Reed

Accomplished display down the right. May have found another string to his bow. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

Assist for Tom Trybull’s thumping winner. Perfect blend betweeen the two in that central battleground. 7.5

• Tom Trybull

Rasping strike thundered home from 25 yards. Not a bad way to celebrate a new deal. Second half ankle injury exit a concern. 8.0

• Jamal Lewis

One overlapping run and cutback created a big chance for Nelson Oliveira. Add that dimension to his game and he could be the full package. 7.0

• James Maddison

Cheeky Kevin De Bruyne-inspired low free kick under the Boro wall brushed the side netting. Injury doubt ahead of kick off and made way in the final quarter. 7.0

• Nelson Oliveira

Thwarted twice by Darren Randolph after quick feet inside the penalty area. Still tending to do more work outside the opposition box. 7.0

• Josh Murphy

Injected some much-needed thrust and drive in the second period. Fired wide from the edge of the area. 7.0

City substitutes

• Moritz Leitner 7.0

Masterclass in passing and controlling the tempo in a 30 minute cameo.

(for Tom Trybull, 59)

• Mario Vrancic 6.5

With Boro a man light this was Vrancic’s game in the second half.

(for James Maddison, 71)

• Onel Hernandez n/a

(for Josh Murphy, 85)
