Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann played the most minutes during Norwich City’s pre-season campaign.

The defenders came out top for the most minutes in the tank for Canaries players, during a mostly positive spell of preparations for the new Championship campaign.

Daniel Farke’s team won five and drew one of their eight friendly games, with defeats coming against Union Berlin and Charlton Athletic.

They racked up 15 goals in the process and conceded nine, with the only clean sheet coming in the 2-0 victory over League Two side Crawley at Colney.
