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
• 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)
