Pre-season moved up a gear as Norwich City thrashed Championship new boys Luton Town 5-1 at Kenilworth Road – and you can take a look at some of our favourite images from the friendly victory.

Josip Drmic scored a hat-trick in the first half after Marco Stiepermann having scrambled an early opener, with the striker's third swiftly following a reply from the hosts.

Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts was involved in the creation of three of those goals and then curled home a sumptuous strike in the 55th minute to wrap up a 5-1 victory.

Luton were promoted as League One champions and begin their Championship season against Middlesbrough on Friday but couldn't cope with the classy attacking play of Daniel Farke's team.

The Canaries complete pre-season with Carrow Road games against Atalanta on Tuesday and Toulouse on Saturday, before they begin their Premier League challenge at Liverpool on Friday, August 9.
