While much of the focus following Saturday’s game at Goodison Park was on Marco Silva and the Toffees, there was some room for discussion of Norwich City, or ‘the Chewits,’ as Chris Sutton described them in their red and yellow kit for the win against Everton.
To kick us off, here’s what some of our players had to say on social media…

“The Canaries have a valuable three points that lift them off the bottom, and they have a fine defensive display to thank for it. They kept shape, looked desperate to throw themselves in the way of anything and everything, and cleared corners all afternoon.
In attack, Pukki left Goodison Park without a goal but he worked tirelessly to drag the defenders this way and that, giving others the freedom to wander forward in space. A valuable goalscorer but an even more important team player.”
Tim Oscroft, BBC Sport
“From the outset, Norwich did not play like a side on such a poor run, having more ideas and creativity than their hosts.
Norwich now face Arsenal, Southampton and Sheffield United in quick succession, but if they can ensure that this kind of performance becomes the norm rather than exception then Farke's side could soon be out of the relegation zone.”
Chris Bascombe, The Telegraph
“Norwich’s fine performance shouldn’t be overshadowed. If they are to find safety, it will not be through physicality or the percentage game associated with the most recent escape acts. There is a purity to Daniel Farke’s methods. Norwich’s long road to survival has begun with a significant step.”
Andy Hunter, The Guardian
“Norwich were bright and adventurous from the start, strong and resilient when Everton applied late pressure and departed with their first away win of the campaign courtesy of Todd Cantwell’s polished finish and substitute Srbeny’s late strike. Victory was richly deserved.”
Connor Southwell, Eastern Daily Press
“City displayed a more robust streak all afternoon, with balance evident throughout the side. This was three points that they worked tirelessly to get and were well worth.”
