WESLEY HOOLAHAN HAS enjoyed himself in recent months and his impressive form shows no sign of stopping any time soon.

He played an integral role in Norwich dismantling a hapless Blackburn Rovers in their Championship opener at Ewood Park.

The Canaries eased to a 4-1 win with Hoolahan scoring once and adding another assist in a rampant display from the visitors.

The game was effectively over after 25 minutes, with Norwich already 3-0 up thanks to goals from Jacob Murphy and Cameron Jerome – either side of Hoolahan’s calm finish from close range.

Steven Naismith added a fourth just before the hour mark before Anthony Stokes – on his league debut for Blackburn following his summer move from Celtic – grabbed a consolation for Owen Coyle’s side.
