A confident Arsenal demolished Norwich in a 4-0 win, delivering a clinical performance that saw the Gunners boost their Champions League hopes and put another dent in Norwich’s survival plans.
With the win Arsenal climb to seventh in the table on 46 points, while Norwich remain bottom on 21 points.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the man of the match, made the most of two defensive errors from Norwich, while Granit Xhaka swept home after an Aubameyang assist and Cedric Soares scored on his debut to see off the spirited Canaries with ease.
The game shows up a lot of positives for Arsenal. It revealed Arteta has so many options, as he left out Saka, Pepe and Nketiah, while Cedric, Willock and Holding came on.
The club also seem finally to be over the worst of their injury problems, even though Sokratis, Chambers, Leno and Torreira remain out.
Aubameyang becomes the fastest Arsenal player in Premier League history to reach 50 goals and only five players in PL history have done it quicker than in his 79 appearances.
