A convincing 4-1 win, back to the top of the table and goals flowing. As weekends go, this was a pretty positive one for Norwich City. You can recap our Canaries debate with correspondent Connor Southwell from Monday's Q&A.

Emi Buendia's return inspired a slick attacking performance from the previously profligate City side as they recorded three goals at Carrow Road for the first time since that famous victory over Manchester City last season. 

They now embark on a frenetic but crucial period in the Championship concluding with a crunch clash with rivals Brentford, who themselves dropped points after being defeated 2-0 by Valerien Ismael's Barnsley. 

The Canaries now face four of the bottom five in their next four league matches hoping to sustain their lead at the top of the Championship, starting with an away game against Mark Robins' Coventry City on Tuesday evening.
