The Canaries were smashed 4-0 at Millwall on the eve of the first international break of the season, during which the summer transfer window also came to a close.
The Canaries’ key purchase was Newcastle and Scotland centre-back Grant Hanley, while City also managed to keep hold of their most prized assets – including Portuguese striker Nelson Oliveira.
