Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 4-0 romp at Bolton Wanderers.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who hit the top again and bounced back in style from a midweek setback to hammer Bolton.

• Tim Krul

Second clean sheet in three games but could have taken the day off. 7

• Max Aarons

Front foot attacking instincts. Got his reward with link roles in the goals for Marco Stiepermann and Emi Buendia. 8

• Christoph Zimmermann

Solid against some big boys and the gorgeous pass for Teemu Pukki to make it four. 8

• Ben Godfrey

One barnstorming run ended with a chance for Buendia. Strong and quick to shut down the balls into the channels fired at Josh Magennis and Clayton Donaldson. 7

• Jamal Lewis

Enjoyed himself in support of Onel Hernandez. Couple of final balls could have been better. 7

• Tom Trybull

Big response to getting hooked at Preston. Link role for Stiepermann’s finish and kept Bolton on the carousel all day. 8

• Kenny McLean

Assist for Buendia but the latest to fluff his lines from the penalty spot. 7

• Emi Buendia

Perfectly-timed run and cushioned volley to finish. Could have had plenty more in that one-sided first half. 8

• Marco Stiepermann

Major injury doubt pre-match but underlined his value to the cause. Superb threaded pass set up Pukki for the opener. Then anticipated the cutback from his partner to roll home City’s second. 8

• Onel Hernandez

Best outing for a while. Set the tone with a driving run inside the opening seconds and was a constant threat with his pace and direct thrust. 8

• Teemu Pukki

Brace and an assist. Writing his own headlines now. Which should have included a first City matchball if he had opted to elbow Kenny McLean aside on the penalty. 9

City substitutes

• Moritz Leitner n/a

(for Marco Stiepermann, 79)

• Dennis Srbeny n/a

(for Teemu Pukki, 88)

• Grant Hanley n/a

(for Jamal Lewis, 89)
