The newly crowned EFL Cup winners came close to a game opener thanks to an excellent effort from Curtis Jones but it was denied by the crossbar. But they wouldn’t be kept out for long and took the lead on 27 minutes when Divock Origi fed Takumi Minamino inside the box and he took a throw-in before heading home.

And the Japan international vindicated his claim for a regular place with another emphatic finish at the far post after no Norwich player picked him up from a corner.

However, Norwich put up an anxious finish when Harvey Elliott lost the ball down the right and Norwich punished instantly with a quick move down the middle that culminated in Lukas Rupp blasting a beauty past Alisson from range.

The Brazilian then made a fantastic save in the closing stages to deny Jonathan Rowe and put his side through.
