The Canaries have been set-piece kings this Easter, having netted twice from corners against Plymouth Argyle on Good Friday.

They repeated the trick this afternoon, by using a similar tactic to Man City.

Pep Guardiola‘s men scored from a smart corner routine against Liverpool last month.

Nathan Ake blocked off Alexis Mac Allister at the near post, leaving John Stones free to prod home Kevin De Bruyne‘s whipped delivery from close range.

On this occasion it was Ben Gibson who manhandled Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall out of the way, with Gabriel Sara pouncing to score for the visitors.

After Stones’ goal last month, Gary Neville labelled the routine as “genius”.

Guardiola, 53, later deferred the credit to City’s set-piece coach Carlos Vicens.

Stones himself said: “We’ve worked hard on it all week. We spotted something yesterday, worked on it, and it came off.”

While a second exclaimed: “Norwich just pinched Man City’s corner routine for the goal there!”

A third commented: “No way Norwich just scored the same corner Man City scored against Liverpool.”

And another added: “Norwich scoring the Man City corner there. Leicester are in free fall.”

The Canaries’ lead did not last long.

On 33 minutes Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall levelled for the home side, nodding in Stephy Mavididi’s header across goal.
