The Canaries treated their fans to one of the best games Carrow Road has ever witnessed to stun Premier League champions Manchester City.

Few inside Norfolk, let along outside, gave Daniel Farke's depleted squad any hope of halting Pep Guardiola and a world class visiting line up.

But the hosts pulled off a tactical masterclass of counter attacking verve, set piece sorcery and resolute defending roared on by a frenzied home support.

The likes of Ibrahim Amadou and Sam Byram sparkled on their full Premier League debuts for the club following summer arrivals. While Alex Tettey turned back the clock in only his second start for months to captain the side.

At the sharp end Teemu Pukki, Emi Buendia, Todd Cantwell and Marco Stiepermann cashed in on a defensive frailty for the champions.
