Norwich's Josh Murphy produced an incredible effort to break the deadlock in their Sky Bet Championship match against Aston Villa perfectly curling the ball in to the top corner.

With a relatively even first half looking as though it would end goalless, the winger scored a contender for goal of the season from outside the area after his initial shot was blocked by John Terry.

As Terry's clearance from the near post was picked up by James Maddison, Murphy collected the ball from the feet of his team-mate, strode towards the 18-yard box and rifled a stunning curling effort beyond the reach of Sam Johnstone and into the top left corner of the net.

It was a goal that set the tone for his man-of-the-match performance. He later added a superb assist, laying on the ball for Maddison to score the third goal as the Canaries ran out 3-1 winners and dealt a blow to Villa's automatic promotion hopes.
