Daniel Farke reckoned Carrow Road was ‘buzzing’ for Norwich City’s Premier League win over Newcastle United - but another special occasion looks in store for Chelsea’s upcoming weekend visit.

Teemu Pukki's hat-trick earned the Finnish striker top billing in what was an almost perfect homecoming for Farke's squad and the best possible way to respond to a difficult opening night league bow at Liverpool.

Moritz Leitner grabbed his chance in the starting line up with a controlled, composed display of possession football.

Todd Cantwell was another who produced an eye-catching offering and was heavily involved in Pukki's second and third goals.

Tim Krul was also seconds from a special clean sheet against his old club until Jonjo Shelvey cut inside Grant Hanley to grab a scant consolation. But can Norwich serve up a repeat against Chelsea under new management?

Frank Lampard will bring his side to Carrow Road for a Saturday lunchtime televised kick-off bidding for a first competitive win after one point from their opening two Premier League tussles and a penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool in the Uefa Super Cup.

All those topics from the Magpies' win were discussed, as well as a look ahead to Chelsea, with Group Football Editor Paddy Davitt in our regular Monday lunchtime question-and-answer session.
