Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 4-3 defeat at Carrow Road.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who contrived to slip up on home soil after too many self-inflicted blows.

• Tim Krul

Horrendous moment to pat Jay Rodriguez’s long range effort into his own net at a crucial stage in the game. 4

• Ben Marshall

Caught under the ball with heavy consequences. 6

• Grant Hanley

Best work unquestionably in the opposite box. Thumping close range headed finish. 7

• Timm Klose

One or two timely blocks but part of a backline shipping too many goals already. 6

• Ivo Pinto

Impressive reserves of energy and willingess to step up out of position. Still plenty to offer on this showing. 7

• Alex Tettey

Time to ration the drag backs. Coughed up the ball cheaply to Rodriguez to embarrass Tim Krul. Beaten in the air for the third West Brom goal. 6

• Kenny McLean

Encouraging full league debut. Deployed wide right and switched centrally. Tidy range of passing. 7

• Teemu Pukki

Persistence earned Jordan Rhodes his goal. Cool finish from Onel Hernandez’s cut back. 7

• Moritz Leitner

The ring master in the first half. But defensive concerns persist when asked to go the other way. 7

• Onel Hernandez

Trickery earned a penalty. Two assists. Following on from Blues brace, the wide player has started in stunning fashion. 8

• Jordan Rhodes

First league goal for the Canaries showcased his predatory instincts. But such a weak penalty was the abiding memory. 6
