Romelu Lukaku scored in the 82nd minute on Saturday (Sunday, NZ time) to complete a come-from-behind 2-1 for West Bromwich Albion against Norwich in the English Premier League, ending the visitors' 10-game unbeaten run.

Robert Snodgrass had given Norwich an early lead after goalkeeper Ben Foster failed to keep out his dipping free kick.

But Zoltan Gera ended West Brom's near six-hour goal drought just before the break and on-loan Chelsea player Lukaku then headed the winner with eight minutes remaining.

The win ended West Brom's recent slump, having collected only two points from four games after climbing to third spot.

They are now sixth, behind Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham on goal difference.
