Norwich send Spurs crashing

Robert Snodgrass on Sunday scored the only goal as Norwich moved away from the relegation zone and dented Tottenham’s top-four hopes, BBC Sport reports.

Scotland winger Snodgrass curled his low shot from 18 yards beyond Hugo Lloris after Bradley Johnson’s pass.

Goalkeeper John Ruddy helped Norwich to victory, denying Emmaunel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli in the second half.

Norwich came close to doubling their advantage when Johnson thundered a free-kick off the underside of the bar.

It was Norwich’s second victory in 12 league games and a significant boost for manager Chris Hughton, who was under growing pressure following comments made by chief executive David McNally earlier in February.

Also on Sunday, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge scored twice as Liverpool beat Swansea in a thriller to tighten their grip on fourth place in the Premier League.

Sturridge’s opener came in the second minute and Henderson hit home soon after.

But Jonjo Shelvey pulled one back with a fine 20-yard shot and Wilfried Bony headed in off Martin Skrtel to level.

Sturridge headed in his second from Luis Suarez’s cross but Bony pulled Swansea level from the penalty spot before Henderson stabbed in the winner.

Loic Remy scored a stoppage-time winner as Newcastle ended a run of four successive home league defeats by beating Aston Villa at St James’ Park.

Gabriel Agbonlahor went close for Villa with three first-half shots before Papiss Cisse sidefooted a Remy pass over from 10 yards at the other end.
