Norwich City had a very disappointing opening month to the season under Daniel Farke.

The club currently sit in the relegation zone of the Championship after five games, having won just once in the league.

Norwich played seven games during August – five in the league and two in the cup – and won three, lost three and one draw.

The Canaries held Fulham to a draw on the opening day, lost to Aston Villa, Sunderland and Millwall and beat QPR, Charlton and Swindon.

Our Norwich player of the month for August is… James Maddison!

Angus Gunn, Harrison Reed, Christoph Zimmermann, Josh Murphy and Nelson Oliveira all picked up one man of the match award each.
