Norwich started off their home Premier league campaign with a 3-1 thrashing of Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.
Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick, scoring a stunning first-half volley to give the Canaries the league going into half-time, before two more calm finishes to give him the matchball.
In second-half stoppage time, Newcastle got a late goal thanks to midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, but for the majority of the match, were being dominated by the hosts, with stats backing that up as the Magpies had just 37% possession.
There were many good performances from the Canaries, who registered their first points of the new season. The back-line were confident and comfortable in possession. Tom Trybull and Moritz Leitner controlled the game and linked defence to attack well. And Todd Cantwell provided two assists and was always an attacking outlet.
There were so many positives to take from the game, but what did they learn? Here are four things that we picked out.
Stiepermann needs to up his game
After producing two poor performances in the opening two games, Stiepermann really needs to improve to keep his place in the starting eleven. With players like Patrick Roberts waiting in the wing, the German needs to prove Daniel Farke he is the right man for the job.
Pukki still has what it takes
The Finn is carrying on where he left off from last season, after scoring a hat-trick at the weekend to become the Premier league’s joint top-scorer – alongside Raheem Sterling. Anyone who had doubts over his ability to score at this level has certainly been proven wrong.
Super Todd Cantwell
The Dereham-born youngster has certainly improved from last season, and has been one of The Canaries’ best players so far this season. He has a point to prove and is going about it the right way so far, providing Teemu Pukki with two assists against Newcastle.
Bring on Chelsea
After a very promising start to life back in the Premier League, the players will be very confident going into their next game against a much tougher opponent in Chelsea. The fans will be up for it and Daniel Farke will be hoping his side may be able to get something from the game.
