Conor Hourihane The Hero As Aston Villa Grab Vital Win

Conor Hourihane scored the winner for Aston Villa as they beat Norwich on Stephen's Day.

The Corkman came off the bench in the 56th minute, replacing Marvelous Nakamba with the game scoreless. Eight minutes later, he put Villa ahead.

The goal came when Jack Grealish picked up the ball on the edge of the box and danced past a couple of Norwich defenders before playing it to Hourihane.

As Norwich players threw themselves in front of the midfielder, he got enough loft on the ball to lift it over their attempted blocks and find the net.

The goal is Hourihane's third of the season in the league. He also scored in a 5-1 win against Norwich back in October.
