Player ratings for both Norwich City and Swansea City following their Premier League clash.

• Norwich City

5 Mark Bunn: One routine early stop from Michu, but a groin injury curtailed his involvement.

You may also want to watch:

7 Russell Martin: Defensively sound but really came to the party providing attacking support to Elliott Bennett.

7 Michael Turner: Finish any striker would be proud of. Had already tested Michel Vorm in the first half. Let Luke Moore escape twice.

Most Read

6 Sébastien Bassong: By his own post-match admission not his best outing in yellow and green. Never got to grips with Michu.

6 Javier Garrido: Tough shift against a lively customer in Nathan Dyer, backed up superbly by Dwight Tiendalli.

6 Jonny Howson: Thankless task at times given Swansea's prowess in the centre of the park.

7 Bradley Johnson: One vital interception deep in his own penalty box in the second period. Left his mark on Michu early on.

7 Elliott Bennett: Two key assists and numerous forays into the final third. Linked seamlessly with Russell Martin.

6 Wes Hoolahan: Swamped at times when in possession. Best work in City's purple patch around Michael Turner's goal.

7 Robert Snodgrass: Celebration said it all after a rare headed goal. Carved out Turner's first half chance and a willing runner on the left.

6 Kei Kamara: Set Elliott Bennett free for first goal. Won the free kick for second but indecision proved fatal at key moment.

Subs: Lee Camp (for Bunn) 7, Alex Tettey (for Howson) 5, Grant Holt (for Hoolahan) 5

• Swansea City

6 Michel Vorm: Will not be happy to have been done by two far post crosses for the goals.

7 Dwight Tiendalli: Key roles in both Swansea strikes. Tireless appetite. Offered a productive attacking outlet.

6 Chico Flores: Painful end to the contest following two run-ins with Grant Holt. Steady influence at the back.

6 Ashley Williams: Usual rather below-par effort whenever he faces the Canaries. Booking for hauling down Kei Kamara said it all.

6 Ben Davies: Rightly cautioned after manhandled Elliott Bennett. Young man still learning his trade.

7 Jonathan de Guzman: Touch of silk in the midfield battleground. Calmness personified to set up Michu for the first goal.

6 Ki Sung Yeung: Went missing during Norwich's best spells. Not quite the presence of the influential Leon Britton.

6 Nathan Dyer: Pace troubled Javier Garrido, but choked his best sighter of goal in the first period.

7 Michu: Instinctive finish for his goal but also a tame header and total aberration when he skied over in final seconds.

7 Wayne Routledge: Seems to have flowered in south Wales. Now adding an end product to his athletic ability.

7 Luke Moore: Predatory instinct to slot the equaliser. Lee Camp's bravery was all that denied him a second. Excellent focal point.

Subs: Pablo Hernandez (for Routledge) 6, Angel Rangel (for Davies) 6, Roland Lamah (for Dyer) 5
