Lucas wonder goal inspires Spurs to thumping win against Norwich

Lucas Moura's outstanding goal helped earn fast-improving Tottenham a third straight Premier League win under Antonio Conte and left Norwich anchored at the bottom of the table.

The Brazil forward found the top corner from 25 yards after a move which saw him beat two Norwich players and play a one-two with Heung-min Son.

Norwich should already have taken the lead but Teemu Pukki fired straight at Hugo Lloris before Moura scored his first Premier League goal since February.

Davinson Sanchez doubled the lead when the Colombian defender lashed home after Norwich failed to deal with a corner before Son made it 3-0 with a neat finish.

At 1-0 Harry Kane missed a chance to score his first top-flight goal under Conte when he spotted Tim Krul off his line, but the England captain's lob over the keeper fell wide of the target.

The Canaries are three points from safety after their first defeat under Dean Smith.

They missed a golden chance to equalise when 20-year-old Republic of Ireland forward Adam Idah fired wide from close range before Sanchez had made it 2-0.
