The home side showed intent from the start, Grant Holt striking the post inside the opening five minutes.

Darren Bent had a chance at the other end two minutes later, but his effort was blocked was Canaries keeper Mark Bunn.

Steve Morison put Norwich ahead in the 19th minute, calmly slotting the ball past Villa's Shay Given.

However, Norwich's lead was short lived, as Brett Holman hit the equaliser one minute later from a Christian Benteke cross.

The visitors had several chances to take a lead into half time, but Bunn was solid in goal, keeping Villa's shots out of the net.

Bent's return to Villa's starting XI was short lived, as the striker had to be substituted in the 36th minute after picking up an injury.

A lively opening 15 minutes of the second half saw chances of both ends of the pitch, with both keepers called in to action.

Villa took the lead inside the last 10 minutes through Andreas Weimann, before the Austrian added his second and Villa's third six minutes later, sealing the win for Paul Lambert's side.
