Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men totaled 27 shots in the game and could have scored many more goals – Mohamed Elyounoussi coming close three times in the game.

The Canaries have inspired Angus Gunn to thank for his respectable tally, with the former Southampton man also making good saves to deny Kyle Walker-Peters and Stuart Armstrong.

A slew of opportunities for Armstrong and Walker-Peters prompted Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher to label the clash ‘men vs boys’.

The result sees Saints drop to ninth in the Premier League table while Dean Smith’s side remain bottom.
