Birmingham:

Striker Christian Benteke scored twice as Aston Villa stormed back from a goal down to hammer Norwich 4-1 in the Premier League on Sunday.

In a game between two sides hovering above the relegation zone, Wes Hoolan steered the ball home from Gary Hooper's cutback to put the visitors ahead after just three minutes.

But Benteke smashed in an equaliser in the 25th minute and then nodded home his second just two minutes later.

Leandra Bacuna added the third off the base of the post after Gabriel Agbonlahor surged away on the break and Norwich's first-half misery was complete when defender Sebastien Bassong turned Fabian Delph's cross into his own net just before the break.

Norwich settled down in the second half, but never looked like turning the game around.
