Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s table setting, who found a way to overcome a dedicated boro in a capacity that is quickly becoming a major tenet of this battle against the championship.
Marvin Johnson’s low, evasive hit in the first half shoveled away. Even if an opponent can hit him from the penalty spot, it doesn’t count. Remarkable. Third clean sheet in a row. 7
Crucial arrow and exchange with Przemyslaw Placheta brought the sentence commuted by Teemu Pukki. 7
Chuba Akpom was thwarted in the first phase when Tim Krul misjudged the flight of a meandering ball into his box. Even better near the post block when Britt Assombalonga shoots up close. For this backline in Norwich he is so important now that he stays fit. 8
Saved Krul who could only parry Johnson’s first strike. A groundbreaking reunion with his youth club then seemed pissed off when he turned Marcus Tavernier on his head, who appeared in the penalty area on his blind side. However, fate was with him. 7
Neil Warnock was furious when he escaped a second yellow card for a late body check. The first for a wrong tackle against Jonny Howson was tough. In between, another stable display in an unknown position. He’d better get used to it for the foreseeable future. That is, part of a defense that stacks clean sheets. 7
Pleasing appetite for sales work encapsulated in his back-tracking burst and stealing to pause a Boro counter that drew applause from the technical section of the away game. Another important pre-break intervention to cut a cross on his post intended for Akpom. 7
I didn’t enjoy Boro’s incessant midfield press for the first 45 minutes. Probably had one of the Canaries ???? Best chance of opening when he pulled a shot wide with his right foot. Farke then revealed, despite having finished the competition, that the hamstring continues to worry the German. A worry. 7
Marcus Bettinelli had climbed from 20 meters away, but his curler had a wide arc. A fascinating run put two Boro defenders in knots, but Marco Stiepermann’s shot was blocked. Inches from junction with Placheta’s low center in the second half. 7
Isolated before the break, with City’s central midfield and defense on the back foot. 6
Two crosses on the top drawer in each half, covering the length of the six-yard box with no takers. His pace is a useful option when City is under pressure. But a sloppy touch on the edge of his own box added to the sequence that earned Boro a penalty. 7
Not the homecoming he was hoping for. Little or no service and a suspected shoulder ligament injury shortened his afternoon break. 6
In a rich form of goalscorer form. In the last nine games for the club and the country, he scored a sixth place. Dael Fry’s excellent final trench challenge denied him the chance to test Bettinelli earlier. Paddy McNair made another angled attempt into the side net.
