Turner put Norwich ahead in the 56th minute, ghosting in to meet Robert Snodgrass’ inswinging free-kick with a close-range header. With five minutes left, Kei Kamara’s tug on Giroud saw Arteta to equalise from the spot before Bassong turned in an own goal from Podolski’s cut-back. Podolski sealed it in added time, beating Bunn low down from Walcott’s pass.
