Norwich City started the new year in positive fashion thanks to a 2-1 win over Millwall at Carrow Road. Here’s your chance to rate the performances of the Canaries players.
Former Norwich striker Steve Morison had given the Lions the lead just a minute before half-time, steering a fine half-volley beyond Angus Gunn from 30 yards.
Tom Trybull levelled the score in the 52nd minute with his first league goal for City though, finally scoring the goal the hosts deserved for their bright play.
James Maddison completed the comeback in the 77th minute, firing home from just inside the area after a beautiful defence-splitting pass from Alex Pritchard set him free.
Young left-back Jamal Lewis started his first Carrow Road game and again impressed, while Trybull was in the thick of the action and Josh Murphy was given a standing ovation when he was replaced late on.
Timm Klose and Grant Hanley struggled to contain Morison in the first half but finally got the centre-forward under control in the second half to help ensure a reasonably comfortable closing period for Daniel Farke’s side.
Although the three points doesn’t move City from 13th position, they have moved closer to the top half and within eight points of the play-off places, ahead of next weekend’s FA Cup third round clash with Chelsea.
