• Norwich City:

7 Mark Bunn: Assured full Premier League debut for club. One excellent stop from Puncheon.

6 Steven Whittaker: Ding-dong battle with Adam Lallana. Got forward much more second half.

7 Ryan Bennett: Excellent reading of the game. Gave as good as he took from Rickie Lambert. Quality.

7 Sebastien Bassong: Less talismanic than his Everton stint but no less authoritative.

6 Javier Garrido: Difficult customer in Jason Puncheon but gamely stuck to the task. Quality delivery as usual.

7 Alex Tettey: The Norwegian at his marauding best. Dragged City back into the contest. Fearsome.

6 Bradley Johnson: Key figure in helping disrupt Saints during their best work. Ranged forward as well.

7 Robert Snodgrass: Notched the goal with the aid of Saints’ keeper. Constant outlet in attack.

7 Wes Hoolahan: Grew into the game along with his team-mates. Fantastic appetite for work.

6 Anthony Pilkington: Very lively shift from the wide player. Disciplined to help out Javier Garrido.

6 Grant Holt: Took plenty of stick from the Saints fans, but music to the skipper’s ears.

Subs: Steve Morison (for Holt) 5, Elliott Bennett (for Snodgrass) 5, Jonny Howson (for Hoolahan) 5

• Southampton:

5 Paulo Gazzaniga: He was left red-faced by the error for the Canaries’ equaliser.

7 Nathaniel Clyne: Still looks a good prospect but gave away the crucial free-kick.

6 Jose Fonte: A formidable figure though he is less impressive on the ground.

6 Maya Yoshida: The centre-back made one or two timely challenges at the back.

6 Luke Shaw: Looked good going forward but Snodgrass kept him occupied.

6 Jack Cork: Some good work in midfield as the Saints pressed for a winner.

6 Morgan Schneiderlin: He has a tendency to go down rather a lot for such a big player.

7 Jason Puncheon: Looked threatening around the City area without the end product.

6 Gaston Ramirez: Hard to see what the fuss was about with the £12m signing.

8 Adam Lallana: Best player on the field and at the heart of Saints’ best moves.

7 Rickie Lambert: Another goal to his tally, looked good in other areas of the pitch.

Subs: Ben Reeves (for Shaw) 5, Jay Rodriguez (for Puncheon) 5
