Jamal Lewis's precise strike gives Norwich win over Leicester

Against the great escapologists of old Norwich pulled off a crucial win that suddenly brings a Houdini act of their own into view. Nobody expects them to emulate Leicester in steaming on to win next season’s Premier League but survival this year now seems achievable after Jamal Lewis’s superb 70th-minute goal settled a game that fizzed and popped throughout. Back in 2014-15 Leicester began eating into a seven-point deficit with nine games to play; by that measure Norwich are two matches ahead of schedule and a season that had all but been written off as a learning experience pulsates, at least for a week or so, with fresh life.Inhibition has generally been the least of Norwich’s problems but Daniel Farke had been criticised for leaving their gifted, if mercurial, creative force Emi Buendia on the bench for the last three games. Farke had suggested his side win more points without the Argentinian but, with reward tending to require significant risk in straits like these, back he came into a team that had recently struggled to score from open play.
