Here's what the national newspapers made of Norwich's performance against Leicester on Saturday.

•The Mirror: 'Jerome is a Championship striker. It's as simple as that. It wasn't just missing a big chance but his all round play.

'His touch was poor and he failed to play in team mates with sloppy passing on several occasions.'

•The Sun: 'Alex Neil made defending the priority and spread five across his backline to prevent Jamie Vardy and Co running riot. For 89 minutes it worked for them, with Leicester only creating half-chances.'

•The Mail: 'Norwich's threat was largely down to Nathan Redmond.'
