There was a notable milestone for Pep Guardiola, who celebrated the 550th win of his management career - the perfect boost ahead of Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League last-16 game against Sporting.
"In general this was a good performance," Guardiola said afterwards. "We arrived here at the best moment for Norwich in terms of their results and confidence.
"We play all these years seriously and today they proved it again.
"When Aleks doesn't play because Joao is in top form, they accept it.
"They don't have to convince me or their teammates of their quality, they have to perform well.
"We have a lot of competitions and everyone must be involved. We played three days before and will play again in three days - we need fresh legs.
"These guys proved they can play in any game."
