Player Ratings: Norwich City 1-0 Southampton

With both goalkeepers in fine form, a stunning strike from Nathan Redmond proved to be the difference as the Canaries claimed their first league win of the season at Carrow Road

By Theo Squires at Carrow Road

    John Ruddy

    An impressive performance in goal from Ruddy. Did well to deny Osvaldo and Lambert on numerous occasions and, with the Norwich fans chanting "England's number one", he managed to keep the pressure on Joe Hart with another strong showing.

  • Steven Whittaker

    Steven Whittaker

    A solid performance from the right-back. Could have given his side an early lead and was a constant threat in attack and equally capable at the back.

  • S. Bassong

    S. Bassong

    Was strong in the air and dealt with the threat of Osvaldo and Lambert well all afternoon.

  • Michael Turner

    3.00

    Michael Turner

    An equally impressive performance as his partner at centre-back. Limited the threat of Lambert and Osvaldo and was always on hand to clear the ball.

  • Javier Garrido

    Javier Garrido

    Did his job well at a time when Norwich were under-pressure. Also supported Redmond effectively.

  • Bradley Johnson
    0

    3.00

    Bradley Johnson

    A fine showing from Johnson in the middle of the park. Combined well with Fer and did the simple things to good effect.

  • Robert Snodgrass
    0

    2.50

    Robert Snodgrass

    An underwhelming performance from Snodgrass. Was a constant threat from set-pieces but failed to involve himself in any other way. Showed up by Redmond on the other flank.

  • Leroy Fer
    0
    0
    3.00

    Leroy Fer

    Strong in the centre of midfield and provided the assist for Redmond's goal. Missed an early chance from point-blank range which he would like to have done better with.

  • Nathan Redmond

    Nathan Redmond Top of the Match

    Norwich's star performer outfield. Was a constant threat for the Canaries and scored a fine opening goal, cutting in from the left and beating two men before slotting past the impressive Boruc from range.

  • Ricky van Wolfswinkel
    0

    2.00

    Ricky van Wolfswinkel Flop of the Match

    A poor performance up front from Van Wolfswinkel. Was not involved as much as he would have liked and missed a glorious chance to give his side the lead mid-way through the first half.

  • Johan Elmander
    0
    0
    2.00

    Johan Elmander

    A bright start from the Swede but his impact faded as the game wore on. Strong in the air and won his fair share of flick-ons, though he looked out of place in an attacking midfield role.

Substitutions

  • Jonny Howson
    0
    0
    2.00

    Jonny Howson

    Brought on in the dying embers for the ineffectual Elmander but was equally ineffectual. Did not matter with Norwich already ahead, however.

  • Artur Boruc
    0
    0
    4.00

    Artur Boruc

    A very impressive performance from the Pole. Stood his ground well to deny Fer early on and pulled off a stunning save to deny Van Wolswinkel midway through the first half. Was nothing he could have done about the goal.

  • Dejan Lovren
    0
    0
    3.00

    Dejan Lovren

    Very impressive at the back. Dealt well with Elmander and was unlucky to end up on the losing side.

  • Jose Rocha Fonte
    0
    0
    2.50

    Jose Rocha Fonte

    Kept Van Wolfswinkel quiet for the majority but was prone to losing his man. Fortunate not to concede a penalty late on.

  • Daniel Fox
    0
    0
    3.00

    Daniel Fox

    Rarely threatened by Snodgrass. Did his job well.

  • Morgan Schneiderlin
    0
    0
    2.50

    Morgan Schneiderlin

    Brought off for Davis with 20 minutes remaining as his side chased a goal. An average performance, overall.

  • Victor Wanyama
    0
    0
    3.00

    Victor Wanyama

    Impressive showing from Wanyama in midfield. Tackled well and was always available for a pass. Just what you want from a holding midfielder.

  • James Ward-Prowse
    0
    0
    2.50

    James Ward-Prowse

    Adequate showing from the youngster in midfield but would have liked to have made more of an impact.

  • Adam Lallana
    0
    0
    3.00

    Adam Lallana

    Played well but was taken off shortly after the hour mark. Unlucky not to have given his side the lead in the first half with a fine left-footed volley. His passing was sublime.

  • Calum Chambers
    0
    0
    2.50

    Calum Chambers

    Struggled against the threat of Redmond and failed to get a tackle in for the only goal.

  • Rickie Lambert
    0
    0
    2.00

    Rickie Lambert

    A quiet performance up front from Lambert. Rarely involved and failed to test Ruddy in the Norwich goal. Fired an easy effort straight at the Canaries stopper shortly after the hour mark and made Osvaldo's performance look better than it was in comparison.

  • Pablo Daniel Osvaldo
    0
    1
    3.00

    Pablo Daniel Osvaldo

    An impressive but unspectacular full debut from Southampton's record signing. His work-rate was good and he forced a couple of saves from Ruddy but there was no maiden goal for the Italian.

Substitutions

  • Steven Davis
    0
    0
    2.00

    Steven Davis

    Was brought on when Norwich were on top and missed a simple chance from the edge of the area when his side were desperate for a goal.

  • G. Ramírez
    0
    0
    2.00

    G. Ramírez

    Was brought on for Lallana with 30 minutes to go but never threatened to provide the same threat as the player he replaced.

  • Jay Rodriguez
    0
    0
    2.00

    Jay Rodriguez

    Came on with his side in need of a goal late on yet made minimal impact.
