Josh Murphy scored an absolute humdinger of a goal for Norwich City on Saturday, as the Canaries secured a precious victory over Aston Villa at Carrow Road.

Murphy’s goal came just before the break, with the game goalless.

Picking up the ball on the right of the Villa box, the winger drifted inside before delivering the most delicious of curling efforts from all of 25 yards, with the ball arrowing into the top corner of Sam Johnstone’s goal…

A cast-iron stunner, that.

Daniel Farke’s side would run out 3-1 winners, courtesy of goals from Dennis Srbeny and James Maddison, with Jack Grealish nabbing Villa’s goal.

The result sees the Canaries go 12, 11 points off a play-off place, while Steve Bruce and Villa stay fourth, albeit now seven points off an automatic promotion berth.
