“Norwich have won just once in their last 12 Premier League games, but Leicester were not the first side to be left frustrated by Farke's side, and provided the team take inspiration from Aarons dogged display, they won't be the last. The Canaries have won four points in their last three away games in the top-flight, as many as in their previous 16 combined, and the key to their most recent impressive display on the road was nullifying Leicester in the wide areas. Sam Byram was equally diligent in denying Demarai Gray the space to provide Vardy with the ammunition from the flanks, but Aarons was the standout performer, making more blocks than any other player (3) as well as providing one key pass.”

Matt Bullin, BBC Sport

“They played with confidence throughout and, while there were a few nervy moments at the back, they threatened the Foxes' goal consistently. Meanwhile, Todd Cantwell shone on his return to the side, playing with a real swagger, while Buendia impressed with his ball-playing ability.”

Nick Ames, The Guardian

“Norwich’s brightest talents all came to the fore at once on Saturday, and more performances like the 1-1 draw at Leicester could yet haul them out of the mire. Max Aarons covered a prodigious amount of ground from right-back, Emi Buendía was a bewitching and effective presence on the ball in possibly his best showing of the campaign, while Teemu Pukki did exactly what Teemu Pukki does. Godfrey is only 21 but sailed through on all fronts, his imposing physical frame getting the better of Leicester’s attack and some sublime distribution from the back putting Norwich on the front foot.”
