Which Norwich City player performed best in the 3-3 Championship thriller at Leeds United? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

Where to start? City led 3-0 in a display of scintillating counter-attack cut and thrust at Elland Road and then threatened a collapse of epic proportions, even measured by this most inconsistent of league campaigns.

Steven Naismith thumped a superb long range shot past Rob Green and was denied a second later on before a lunge at Ronaldo Vieira earned him a straight red and a premature end to his season.

Nelson Oliveira scored twice, and it is no exaggeration to state could have doubled his personal tally at Elland Road. Josh Murphy earned himself another assist, likewise Alex Pritchard, who rolled in Naismith for his opening goal and was again a key link in the attacking weaponry.

Russell Martin and Ryan Bennett looked to have done a job on Championship top scorer Chris Wood, bar one damaging lapse that sparked the Leeds’ fightback. Jonny Howson and Graham Dorrans were also impressive in City’s most composed spells but like the rest were unable to stem the carnage.

Our Norwich City correspondent, Paddy Davitt, went for Oliveira, who underlined in the manner of his solo second goal that he could have a big say in the future at Carrow Road. But he could and should have had more.

The poll will then continue to run online throughout the week.
