Group Football Editor Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' 2-0 Premier League defeat at Burnley

Here is Paddy's verdict on Daniel Farke's troops, who were blitzed by Burnley's potent start at Turf Moor and never convinced thereafter they had enough to reel in the Clarets.

- Tim Krul

Pulled up in the prelims with what his head coach revealed afterwards was a back issue. Needed painkillers to complete a full shift. No chance with either goal but a sharp reaction stop from Jack Cork. 7

- Sam Byram

Part of a backline not given a moment's peace in a frenetic opening quarter. Brave block to deflect Ashley Barnes' volley at the back post. Caught out of position by Ibrahim Amadou's poor pass that led to Chris Wood's second. 6

- Ibrahim Amadou

Sloppy pass straight to Jack Cork compounded by trying and failing to cut out Dwight McNeil's cross for Wood's second goal. Sean Dyche certainly felt he should have earned a second yellow card after the break for two borderline challenges. Alex Tettey's injury might open the door for a move into central midfield. 5

- Ben Godfrey

Not good enough on the second Burnley goal. And his body language immediately after the concession told you he knew himself. Just that split second lapse in losing Wood proved so costly. But we have also seen that at this level against Seb Haller and Sergio Augero in the opening weeks. Needs to be addressed. 5

- Jamal Lewis

Home crowd sensed blood after a nervy opening quarter. But vital clearance against Jeff Hendrick prevented a third and clipped in more than one decent cross in numerous advanced forays. 6

- Kenny McLean

Tried and failed to head away Ashley Westwood's dipping corner for the opening goal. Found it tough going against an experienced midfield featuring Cork and Hendrick. 6

- Alex Tettey

Body breaks down yet again just one week on from such an influential role in that win over the champions. Alas a recurring theme in the twilight of his Norwich career. Sad also to see his dejected reaction to another early injury exit. We await the medical results and the prognosis. 4

- Emi Buendia

Peripheral by and large, underlining how difficult this game was for City to create anything substantial. One gorgeous pluck out of the air and shot on the angle of the six yard box deflected behind in the first half. 6

- Marco Stiepermann

Burnley closed the space between the lines for the most part, restricting his ability to drop deeper and knit the play. Cut a frustrated figure before he made way for Josip Drmic. 5

- Todd Cantwell

Difficult headed chance in the first half. One or two link ups in the second period but limited attacking thrust 6

- Teemu Pukki

Denied by Nick Pope at 0-0 when clean through in the left-hand channel. Miscued a header from a cross fizzed at him in the first half. Plenty of endeavour but Burnley's defence largely denied him the space to run in behind. 6

City substitutes

- Moritz Leitner 7

Struck a post with a fearsome first half shot. Dragged another sighter wide late on. Not really his game but adapted well after being thrown into the mix.

- Josip Drmic n/a
