Fernandinho shocked by dire Norwich

Fernandinho has said he was surprised how easy Norwich made it for Manchester City as Manuel Pellegrini's team won 7-0 against the Canaries at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Fernandinho spent eight years at Shakhtar before joining City.

The win was City's biggest in the Premier League, and their largest in the top flight since 1968.

Midfielder Fernandinho, a summer signing from Shakhtar Donetsk, said he had not expected a match in the division to be so simple.

The Brazilian said: "When I arrived here, [I thought] every game is hard, difficult. We started very well and scored four goals in the first half. The second half was very easy for us."

Fernandinho was asked whether his side had been good or Norwich poor, and replied: "A bit of both. My team was fantastic. When they score a lot of goals I am happy."

The win extended City's 100 percent start to the league season at home, but Fernandinho challenged them to produce the same level of performance against all their opponents.

He added: "It is not just [about] the Etihad. We want to play like this always. It shouldn't depend on the stadium against Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, against all the teams."
