On a crazy night at Carrow Road, Newcastle United were only able to snatch a point as a resilient and lucky Norwich City side held on to a 2-2 draw. Still, it was enough to keep the Toon atop the standings by a slight margin of one point.
Newcastle made a flying start to the game by getting the lead in the very first minute, but two quick goals by Norwich meant that they trailed the fixture for most of the duration.
The Magpies threw everything they had on Norwich’s goal, but couldn’t get the equaliser they were seeking desperately. Only in the 81st minute, on an Ayoze Perez cross, club captain Jamaal Lascelles hit an amazing volley on the back post to snatch the all important point for his team.
The 23-year-old’s stock rose due to his solid performances last year, and he was aptly awarded by being named the club captain this season. Jamaal Lascelles has been one of the most dependable defenders for Newcastle, and his stunning effort goes on to show his indispensability for this Newcastle United side chasing Premier League football next season.
Take a look at his volley below!
