Norwich City beat Leeds United 2-1 at Carrow Road in a clash with little quality on show and a definite end of season feel.

Wes Hoolahan and Josh Murphy scored for Norwich to turn around a 1-0 deficit after Kalvin Phillips had scored his sixth goal of the season to give Leeds the lead.

Norwich edged the possession with 51% to Leeds 49%

Norwich also had the advantage with shots on goal with 18 to Leeds 15 and both had five on target.

The home side dominated the corner count with nine corners to Leeds three.

Leeds committed more fouls, committing 15 to Norwich’s nine whilst Leeds had two players booked to Norwich’s one.

The defeat leaves Leeds in 14th place in the Championship with just one game to go and they have failed to win on their travels in 2018, their last win away from home coming at Burton Albion on Boxing Day.
