Former Everton man has been impressive this season and was left helpless by the quality of City's attack.
Had to be at his disciplined best to contain the Man City frontline and certainly did himself no disservice with a steady outing.
Has missed much of the season due to injury but looked composed at the back and played well, despite the one-sided scoreline.
Poor pass to Johnson led to City's first goal, which set the tone for his afternoon. He simply could not deal with the speed of Aguero and Tevez as they ran riot.
Produced the cross that led to Surman's goal and was otherwise solid defensively.
Displayed a few impressive cross-field passes but struggled with the quickness in feet and mind of David Silva.
Went agonisingly close to opening the scoring in the first half and needed to be brought into the game more as he looked dangerous. Harshly brought off at half-time.
Looked energetic and committed but could not repeat his White Hart Lane heroics and spent much of the game in Gael Clichy's pocket.
The former Leeds midfielder is still getting to grips with the Premier League and will have learnt a harsh lesson from his opponents this afternoon as he spent much of his time chasing shadows.
Prides himself as a burly centre-forward but went out with a whimper as Kompany and Lescott made him appear very average.
Affectionately known as Wilbrahimovic by the Norwich support and looked to provide a good foil for Holt but struggled against the superb City defence.
Was a spectator for large parts of the match and will be disappointed to have missed out on a clean-sheet bonus.
Was under heavy pressure in the first half but was allowed plenty of opportunity to join the attack in the second period.
There may not be a stronger central-defensive partnership than Lescott and Kompany, the former Everton man was imperious alongside his skipper, dealing with everything Norwich threw at him.
Formidable from the Belgian. Topped a superb season with an outstanding display, dealing with the Canaries' frontline effortlessly.
Up against the lively Pilkington and was beaten once but handled the former Huddersfield man comfortably otherwise.
At his industrious best linking up play from midfield to front as he was involved in both opening goals.
Outshone by his fellow flair midfielder David Silva and was replaced midway through the second half by Yaya Toure.
N. de Jong
Provides a shield for his defence alongside Barry though his passing was a joy to behold rarely failing to find a team-mate.
Standard no-thrills performance from the England man that will no doubt please his manager
Worked his socks off and scored a wonderful hat-trick as he continues to impress and show his desire upon returning to first-team action.
Not to be outdone by his countryman, he also netted two magnificent goals as he closes in on 20 in his debut Premier League season.
- 31 J. Steer
- 25 K. Naughton
Another half-time substitute that looked lively but was not helped by a horror display by his defenders.
Came on at half-time and sparked a short-lived revival with a very well taken goal.
- 15 D. Fox
Came on late for Wilbraham when the game was long out of sight.
- 30 C. Pantilimon
Introduced at right-back with the game already won.
- 13 A. Kolarov
Introduced with time running out but still had enough about him to score the sixth and cap off a magnificent team performance.
- 7 J. Milner
Replaced Nasri to good effect as his attacking power proved all too much for Norwich to handle.
- 10 E. Džeko
