Despite City's emphatic 6-1 victory over the Sky Blues in the League Cup, much of the attention was away from the pitch as fans tried to decipher who the man in stands was.

Many fans on Twitter seemed to think the man was striker Dame N'Doye who is currently playing for Trabzonspor in the Turkish league. The Senegal international has been linked with a move to Carrow Road.

Anita Byrne-Phillips tweeted: 'My son said N'Doye straight away I said nah!! I also said surely he would be in the directors box not in stands?'

Adam Carey said: 'Looks like N'Doye in the Norwich Directors box this evening.'
