  1. FULL-TIME

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Norwich are put put of their misery.

    Bournemouth have put themselves five points clear of the bottom three. They were excellent today.

    You'll be wanting to get all the reaction to this game. You can do that over on this page here.

    But in the name of six-pointers everywhere, I wish you a good evening.

  2. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Seb Bassong dallying on the ball at the back like his side are 3-0 up. Maybe he's looking at the scoreline in a mirror?

  3. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Late sub for the home side. The man who scored the opener, Dan Gosling, is applauded off, as he makes way for Yann Kermorgant.

  4. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    If you're in the mood to give Norwich credit, they're still trying to make things happen. I mean, nothing is working, but they're trying.

  5. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    The Cherries have beaten Chelsea and Manchester United this season - but is this more important than both of them? They'll go five points clear of the drop zone as things stand.

  6. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Robbie Brady has a shot - Norwich almost forgot what those were. Glenn Murray gets his head in the way.

  7. Bargain bucket Benik

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Benik Afobe will get some headlines on just his second start since joining Bournemouth after taking their third goal admirably.

    He's actually seen less of the ball than any outfield player who started the game.

    Still three key passes (yellow) and nine complete passes (green) will always be trumped by a goal. That's what strikers are there for at the end of the day. At £10m, is this a bargain?

  8. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Tricky to pick a man of the match here. I've whittled it down to Charlie Daniels or Marc Pugh - thoughts?

    Benik Afobe meanwhile is done for the day, with Glenn Murray coming on.

  9. Post update

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Oddly, it was Norwich who had the better form coming into this one. But if you take this game alone, only one of these two sides looks like they fancy surviving.

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Yup. Miserable this for Norwich. I can't see any positives.

    Bournemouth make a change, has Harry Arter is replaced by Eunan O'Kane.

  13. 'The Cherries deserve this'

    Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Chris Sutton

    Former Chelsea & Norwich striker on Final Score

    "A good finish from Afobe, who didn't have time to think about it. 

    "The Cherries deserve this - Norwich have been dreadful this afternoon and Bournemouth will now go above them."

  14. GOAL - Bournemouth 3-0 Norwich

    Benik Afobe

    This is all Charlie Daniels. He skins two Norwich players down the left wing and puts in the tastiest of crosses which connects with the on-rushing toe of Benik Afobe.

    The former Wolves man has his first Cherries goal.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Norwich

    That said, Norwich are as dangerous as they have been all afternoon with Dieumerci Mbokani and Cameron Jerome up top.

    They're leaving space in behind though, which Bournemouth are more than capable of using.

  16. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-0 Norwich

    Dieumerci Mbokani take a bow.

    It falls wonderfully for him on the edge of the area, with just Artur Boruc to beat - he goes for a delicate chip... it lands 10 yards wide.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Norwich

    Speaking of poor, Nathan Redmond has been away with the fairies since he's come on for Norwich. He gives the ball away for the second time in a minute.

  19. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-0 Norwich

    Wes Hoolahan has had a poor game and is replaced by Graham Dorrans.

    And now Dan Gosling is charging towards the Norwich area, he takes the shot early and it's straight at Declan Rudd.

  20. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-0 Norwich

    Oh and it's almost created a goal. Junior Stanislas's corner is met by the head of Steve Cook, but Declan Rudd makes a sharp save,
