Norwich City slumped to an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at St. Andrews on Saturday afternoon, as the Canaries ended their first chapter of the season before the international break in utterly disappointing fashion.

From the first minute to the final whistle, Norwich failed to show any real signs of being able to win the game.
