Norwich looked toothless and their goalkeeper Tim Krul tipped over a long-range effort from John McGinn before Ramsey beat him. Ramsey scored a goal of the highest quality in the 34th minute.

Ramsey took a Watkins pass in his stride on the halfway line and after running to pull clear many markers. He thus unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner from the edge of the area.
