Here are the national newspapers' views on Norwich City's breathtaking 3-2 win over Newcastle United at Carrow Road.
• The Daily Mail: 'Carrow Road celebrated like a cut of that £8billion TV contract was already theirs. It's not – yet – but this was big. They know it, and Newcastle do too.
Norwich and Newcastle were heading for a point apiece but Olsson had other ideas when he aimed for the far corner and found it as if he was a striker rather than a left-back.
He went berserk and his manager did too, as Alex Neil ran away from his dugout, knowing how big a stride this was towards safety.'
• The Guardian: 'The expression on Martin Olsson's face was almost incredulous. His first goal of the season could not have been struck more crisply, nor at a better time – right at the end of an incredibly dramatic contest that was full of action and laden with consequences for both teams.
The left-back's stoppage-time winner triggered an eruption of joy all over Carrow Road.'
• The Express: 'This match was not good for the heart, the blood pressure – or Newcastle's survival chances.

• The Mirror: 'Norwich may yet live to curse their defensive meltdowns, like the 5-4 home defeat by Liverpool, but the influence of Swiss defender Timm Klose is growing more apparent. Klose opened the scoring here, looked a theat at other set pieces and kept Papiss Cisse on a short leash.'
• The Sun: 'It was clear from the first whistle that every player in a Norwich shirt recognised the importance of this match, none more so than defender Martin Olsson, who popped up with the winner in added time.'
