Jon Walters struck four minutes into the second half when he slid in at the far post to slot Marko Arnautovic's cross into the net.

Norwich was level six minutes later when Jonny Howson fired a fierce shot into the roof of the net.

The hosts retook the lead after 67 minutes through Joselu who hit a low shot through the legs of defender Ryan Bennett.

Mark Hughes' side got their third after 78 when Bennett turned Afellay's free-kick into his own goal.
