Norwich City 1 3 Newcastle United LIVE Reaction From Carrow Road
The goal fest that is Norwich City vs. Newcastle continues as Joelinton scores twice and Bruno Guimaraes nets a third. The two strikers are proving to be very potent attacking options for the Magpies‚ who are on the verge of a big season. Read on to see who else scored‚ why Joelinton scored twice and what other players said after the match.
Joelinton scored twice
Brazilian striker Joelinton scored twice in his 100th Premier League game. Joelinton's first goal came inside the first half‚ and his second followed in the 65th. A late third came from Bruno Guimaraes‚ who beat a defender to a cross by Tim Krul. Despite his double‚ Newcastle still remain a point behind the top four. Newcastle manager Eddie Howe praised both players and their efforts. The win took Newcastle to ninth place‚ their highest finish since November 2012. In contrast‚ Norwich City are currently bottom of the table‚ with just five points. Neither team will be easing up on their pressure‚ and the result could prove pivotal for either side. However‚ a win would be a massive boost for Newcastle United‚ who are now firmly in the race for a top-four spot. Both sides dominated the game and had plenty of chances‚ but the first half was a classic case of can't-miss football. While Norwich had some chances‚ their efforts were largely wasted. Newcastle dominated the game and made little impact on the match's outcome. Despite the defeat‚ Neil Warnock's side remain in the Premier League for the third consecutive season. The Magpies now have five games left‚ and there is a chance for them to win the title.
Bruno Guimaraes scored third
The Brazilian winger scored the third goal in the match after he received a pass from Tim Krul. Guimaraes then lifted the ball over Krul with classy precision. The Brazilian joined the Magpies from Lyon in January and is currently enjoying a purple patch in front of goal. He earns PS120k per week. Newcastle have ten points in the table after 14 games‚ while Norwich have ten points. The visitors were 2-0 up after only five minutes of play and were still in control. Joelinton scored the opening goal when Norwich failed to clear his low cross. Guimaraes doubled Newcastle's lead shortly after the break. Newcastle moved up to ninth place in the table. The Brazilian was serenaded at full time by the home fans‚ who had unveiled a banner before kick-off to mark the Brazilian's 100th top-flight appearance. Joelinton‚ making his 100th Premier League appearance‚ opened the scoring in the 35th minute. He doubled his lead just before half-time. A clever slide-rule pass from Bruno Guimaraes set him up for the third goal. The win was the Magpies' first home victory at Carrow Road since January 1994. With the win‚ Newcastle are eight points behind leaders Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Pukki scored all four of Norwich's goals against Newcastle
The midfielder has now scored all four of Norwich's Premier League goals. Before this game‚ he had hit the target on three of his previous four shots‚ so he must be happy to have found the net yet again. But he must be able to get a better response from his team against Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United. Newcastle will have to find a way to cope with Norwich's intricate attacking play and elicit a better performance from his team. The early goals were a real contrast to the two sides‚ and there were a few moments when they lacked the same class. In the ninth minute‚ Clark pulled back Pukki from a header and was sent off. This prompted a penalty for Norwich and was awarded after a VAR check. Despite the penalty‚ Norwich were rather ponderous in possession and created fewer chances to score. Their best chances came from Joelinton's strike from 25 yards and Wilson's left-footed effort inside the Norwich box.
Bruno Fernandes poked fun at Bruno Fernandes after goal
Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes has been the subject of mockery from Newcastle United fans after the Portuguese striker's infamous tweet about the game. The mistaken draw saw Manchester United being drawn against Villarreal‚ a team that is barred from participating in the Champions League. Fernandes poked fun at the goal and was criticised heavily by Newcastle fans after the match. The Portuguese striker jokingly asked if the Champions League draw should take place a third time as Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon are both disputing Fernandes' valuation. He is said to enjoy winding up his team-mates and was caught on camera joking about the situation. Whether Fernandes is being facetious or attempting to make fun of his own player is hard to say‚ but it is clear that the Portuguese forward is having fun with the situation. A report in Portuguese outlet A Bola suggests that the midfielder is almost certain to leave Sporting‚ and that he is a top target for Tottenham. Although Tottenham have made a bid of EUR60 million‚ Sporting are refusing to make any compromises on the price‚ and will have to pay another EUR5m in the summer to secure his signature.
Burnley most likely to be saved from relegation
As a team‚ Burnley most likely to be saved from a relegation? The Clarets have been in the relegation zone for the past three seasons‚ but have remarkably avoided relegation on two previous occasions. Last season‚ Sean Dyche's side finished 16th and spent much of the season hovering around the relegation zone. The scare this season was even worse‚ and a late-season win streak was enough to secure their Premier League safety. Since Dyche arrived at Turf Moor‚ Burnley have spent long periods in the relegation zone. Having been in charge for a decade‚ he has been the most successful Burnley manager in Premier League history. Burnley have now sacked Dyche after a turbulent period in the club's history. The club's fans‚ who were not too impressed with the stalemate under Dyche‚ may be justified in sacking him in the upcoming season if the new manager can save the club from relegation. The odds on Burnley being saved from relegation have sunk over the past few months‚ with the team lukewarm at +160. This is only a few points less than the odds on Liverpool‚ who are currently 500/1 favourites. On the other hand‚ the odds on Burnley being saved from relegation aren't much better than they were in November.
Aston Villa drew 0-0 with Norwich City
Aston Villa held Liverpool to a stalemate at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon‚ despite the fact that both sides are promoted from the Championship. The hosts won their last meeting 2-1‚ with Mario Vrancic's late winner. Teemu Pukki scored the opening goal for Norwich‚ while Jonathan Kodjia equalised for Aston Villa in the seventh minute. Norwich have won four of their last five games‚ but have dropped two of their last three in top-flight matches. Norwich have not scored in four Premier League matches this season‚ and are the only side in the top flight without scoring double figures. The Canaries have scored just eight goals all season‚ while allowing just 32. Of those 32 goals‚ 12 have been conceded at Carrow Road. So it is possible for Norwich to draw with Aston Villa this weekend‚ but they need to score three or more to beat Norwich City.
Norwich City's first Premier League goal since February
It was a frustrating day for Norwich as they failed to take advantage of a set piece against Manchester City. A deflected shot from Phil Foden was ruled out for offside before Bernardo Silva headed against the post. Grant Hanley's header was then cleared off the line by Fernandinho‚ but the rebound could have been scored by Teemu Pukki. City will be happy to take three points after their first home game in the Premier League since February. The score was inconclusive but it is a good indication of how far Norwich have come since February. After sieving Chelsea and Manchester City this season‚ Norwich have now scored against one of the top nine for the first time. A deflected shot from Milot Rashica left Alisson motionless. Norwich will be a more formidable side for the next couple of weeks. However‚ it is clear that the manager of the top-flight side will need a strong performance from his team if they are to stay in the Premier League.
Norwich City's poor start to the season
Norwich City's poor start to the season has been a cause for concern for the club. The team is now 10 points off the leaders Newcastle United. Their last home game ended in a 3-2 defeat to Leeds United‚ with Ronaldo Vieira scoring the winning goal in the first minute of injury time. Norwich fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to vent their frustrations. In recent years‚ the club have made changes to their stadium‚ making it more accommodating for supporters. In 2003‚ they added a new stand with a capacity of around 10‚000‚ while a year later‚ the club had to build a new one that could accommodate 1‚000 more supporters. This change led to a raft of negative press‚ but the lack of financial pressure helped Norwich City get back on track. The defeat was also a blow for Norwich City‚ with the team not being very convincing in attack. Norwich had seventeen shots in 90 minutes‚ but only five were on target. The Norwich defence had just four corners‚ and they did not get much in the way of shots from distance. Despite the dreadful start‚ Norwich looked better and made more substitutions. Ozan Kabak and Hanley partnered at the centre of defence.
