Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis from the celebrations, as the Canaries claim the Championship in style with victory at Aston Villa.
Fresh from scoring the goal that won promotion, Mario Vrancic’s 86th minute strike on the counter also secured the title and a 2-1 win at a Villa side previously unbeaten in 12 games.
Jonathan Kodjia had cancelled out Teemu Pukki’s early opener in the first half, but the Finn’s strike ensured his 29-goal haul earned the Championship golden boot.
Ultimately, the Canaries finished 11 points clear of Leeds in third place.
Aston Villa had already booked fifth spot in the table and could not move their position on the final day, meaning the play-offs loom now the regular season is over.
