Made two good saves in the second half to deny Ireland and Heskey before superbly tipping an Agbonlahor shot on to the post. Alert when he had to be.
Growing into a presence for Norwich in defence. Good distribution and coped with the physicality of Heskey well.
Offered good support down the right wing and largely untroubled defensively. Let Agbonlahor beat him for Villa's best chance.
Occasionally troubled by Heskey's muscle but in general a very comfortable afternoon.
Turned in an all-action display in central midfield. Linked up play very effectively and was unlucky not to score when he forced an excellent save from Given in the first half.
Grew into the game as it went on. Ended the first half very brightly with two good shots, the latter forcing Given into a decent stop.
Dealt with Agbonlahor's pace well as the striker attempted to exploit the channels. Saw a good free kick saved by Given.
Able to simplify his game because of the excellent play of the midfielders around him. Took more of a back seat, complementing his teammates by keeping possession effectively.
Not much asked of him at the base of midfield. Held his position and organised those around him.
Very keen to make his last audition for England involvement this summer a successful one. Collected a yellow card and a goal within eight minutes, which provides an apt description of his style of play.
Made several good saves as Norwich piled on the pressure. Looked questionable when dealing with crosses at times, however.
Showed some promise in midfield but drifted in and out of the game. Booked for a wild challenge in the second half.
Badly outmatched by the pace of Jackson, who he struggled to deal with all afternoon.
His terrible error gifted Jackson the second goal of the game. Not a full-back and doesn't look like one when offering support down the flank. Substituted in the second half.
Created Villa's only chance of the first half when he raided infield before forcing Ruddy into a good save. Another youngster who looks as if he could have a good future at the club.
Like Dunne, struggled to deal with the combined pace and physicality of Jackson and Holt.
Looked a passenger in an unfamiliar central-midfield role.
Had one good shot well saved but saw little of the ball and ran around chasing shadows for most of the game.
Substituted at half-time having made little impact in midfield in the first half.
Got into some decent positions to create chances but did not use his physicality to disrupt the Norwich defence very much at all.
If any player in the Aston Villa team is known for his hard running, it's Agbonlahor, but it wasn't much on show here. Looked demoralised and was almost entirely anonymous, one good effort in the second half aside.
