Norwich City 2-0 Aston Villa: Canaries heap misery on Guzan’s Villans


Jonny Howson and Dieumerci Mbokani scored on each side of halftime to lift Norwich to a relatively easy — if a bit testy — 2-0 win over last-place Aston Villa on Monday at Carrow Road.

The Villans are now 11 points back of safety, while the Canaries boosted their survival chances by three more points and sit a trio of points ahead of the drop.

Norwich broke through in the 24th minute, as Lucky Mbokani flicked a cross back post and Howson was Jonny-on-the-spot to belt a left-footed shot past Guzan.

And Mbokani turned finisher in the waning moments to salt things away for the home side, and Norwich heaped more misery on Remi Garde’s Villans.
