Which Norwich City player performed the best in the 4-1 Championship romp at Blackburn? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

City underlined they mean business on the opening day of the Championship season with an emphatic 4-1 win against a dire Blackburn at Ewood Park.

Jacob Murphy will never forget his first senior league start for the club with a potent 25-yard shot opening the scoring. Wes Hoolahan continued his impressive pre-season form with the second and a later assist for Steven Naismith to seal the win after Cameron Jerome had opened his account from close range prior to the interval in a dominant display from Alex Neil's men.

Anthony Stokes' towering header was a sour moment when he rose above Ivo Pinto to beat John Ruddy but there was far more positives. Jonny Howson and Alex Tettey bossed midfield and Naismith's link-up play along with Hoolahan created numerous forays in the final third.

Norwich City Correspondent Paddy Davitt, however, went for Jacob Murphy, who marked a landmark occasion with a goal and a performance which suggested he is ready to play a leading role.
