Arsenal showed their ruthlessness once again to earn a 5-0 win at Carrow Road on Boxing Day.

Mikel Arteta made one change to his starting eleven that had started four straight Premier League games, Rob Holding got into the starting lineup. Arsenal’s right-backs missed the game due to Covid-19 that left Ben White as the only viable option in that position.

Arsenal took the lead through Bukayo Saka, cutting onto his left foot and calmly slotting it past Norwich goalie Angus Gunn.

Martin Odegaard again orchestrated a good move to get his second assist finding Kieran Tierney who received the accurate pass and lashed in a shot to the far post to make it 2-0.

The hosts sat in a low block as the Gunners searched for more goals, Saka found space on the right side and curled the ball into the far corner again to make it 3-0 and get his second goal.

Norwich made clumsy passes and a clumsy challenge from defender Ozan Kabak  on Lacazette left the referee with no choice but to award a penalty that was converted by Laca to make it 4-0.

The Gunners wrapped up the win and it was none other than super sub Smith Rowe. He easily scored from close range after Pepe’s cross took a deflection and landed onto his left foot.

It was the first time since April 2009 that Arsenal scored 4+ goals in consecutive away games and earned their join biggest away win in the Premier League.
