Here are the national newspapers' views on Norwich City's 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
• The Observer: 'Norwich were so neat and precise in comparison with their hosts that some of their attacking moves looked like training exercises – though it is easy to put on an exhibition when four goals to the good.'
• The Guardian: 'It looked as though Norwich had begun their season a few weeks ago and were now hitting their full stride. Alex Neil's side are among the favourites to be promoted from the Championship and they could hardly have made a more promising or confident start.'

• Reuters: 'City have had a settled summer and, enjoying the cohesion that familiarity breeds, put Rovers to the sword with three goals in the first 25 minutes. Jacob Murphy, Wes Hoolahan and Cameron Jerome, who were all at the club when they were promoted in 2015, put Alex Neil's side in a commanding position as they delivered an early statement of intent to the rest of the league.'
