Norwich fell out of the League Cup to Premier League rivals Everton, losing 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
Alex Neil’s side have now lost their last four games, whilst Everton progressed to just their second League Cup in the lsat 27 years.
Sebastien Bassong gave Norwich the lead early in the second half, but the Toffees pulled the game back to a tie on the 68th minute, after a Leon Osman finish.
Roberto Martinez’s side went on to put away all their penalties, whilst Wes Hoolahan and Nathan Redmond both missed their spot-kicks, ending the Canaries’ run in the competition.
Norwich’s team selection was notable for the inclusion of Lewis Grabban in the starting line-up. It was the striker’s fifth performance of the season, and many believe his future lies away from Carrow Road after his outcasting from the first-team by Neil.
He has started just one Premier League game, and has still not scored this term, although he had some golden opportunities to put the ball away in normal time against Everton.
However, he failed to capitalise on his chance to impress Neil, and fans took to Twitter at the end of the game to discuss his performance.
Whilst fans took to praising his penalty, his general performance was criticised by the majority of supporters, with questions raised as to why he was playing whilst Kyle Lafferty sat on the substitutes bench.
Lewis grabban doesn't want to be here. Showed nothing. No heart. I'll drive him out of Norwich myself.— James Burton (@JburtonNR) October 27, 2015
Why does grabban keep playing he can't score, lafferty prolific for country I thought managers,don't have favourites— christopher jennings (@chrisjennings28) October 27, 2015
@Gary_Gowers you get what you deserve playing Lewis Grabban. Nothing.— RealMustard (@KurtFricker) October 27, 2015
@gwelham18 better performance than the last two games still don't understand why he didn't put lafferty or jerome on instead of grabban— liam_eagling (@Eagle__006) October 27, 2015
I'm still in shock at how good Grabban's penalty was. Best thing he's ever done in a Norwich shirt. #NCFC— Ben (@nelsonben) October 27, 2015
@mblake919 If only we had started Lafferty. I know I've been slating him a lot but Grabban is not good enough.— Jack (@TotallyTettey) October 27, 2015
What has happened to Lewis Grabban? I can't believe we've left Hooper go out and kept him here.— Tarquin Chatterston (@CodeNameCanary) October 27, 2015
Still can't believe Grabban got selected over Lafferty #EFCvNOR— J 0 R D 4 N (@Jordaaaan17) October 27, 2015

If I had a pound for every time Grabban was offside I could buy us a whole new defence— Christopher Keeley (@Keels811) October 27, 2015
