Here are our player ratings for Norwich City's starting XI from the famous 3-2 victory against Newcastle on Saturday.

•John Ruddy: Beaten twice but superb stops from Andros Townsend and Papiss Cisse.

•Timm Klose: Produced the all-important breakthrough. Dominant talisman.

•Gary O'Neil: No qualms on the penalty decision but all that experience is coming to the fore.

•Martin Olsson: Could be the biggest goal he ever scores. Also kept Townsend largely in check.

•Steven Naismith: Quality cut-back for Dieumerci Mbokani's chance. Signs of promising pairing.

•Dieu Mbokani: All-action shift capped by a ferocious finish. Denied two by the assistant's flag.

Most Read

•Andre Wisdom: Remarkable return given his limited top flight involvement. Forceful presence.

•Jonny Howson: Assists for the second and third goals. We can gloss over the errant control with the arm.

•Ryan Bennett: Back after injury. Composed foil for Timm Klose. Bettered just once on the goal.

•Matt Jarvis: Couple of probing crosses with no takers. Offers that balance on the right.

•Robbie Brady: Free kick delivery to die for brought the Norwich first-half opener.

The win over fellow Premier League strugglers Newcastle sent Alex Neil's men four points clear of the dropzone with 31 points from 32 games. Get the latest news and analysis from Norwich City - and join the debate - here.
