A very good showing for Arsenal with 4 goals just concluded at the Emirates stadium with a hard earned win against Norwich City. Yes, hard earned as despite the 3 goal gap, Norwich was not an easy team to defeat. The Gunners looked lethargic after the international break but Jack Wilshere volleyed in a superb opener in the 18th minute that will surely challenge for goal of the season so far. Norwich tested the Gunners attempting to take advantage of what seemed liked tired players and they went into the half time break at 1-0. The second half saw the visitors taking the game to Arsenal with a spell of some attacking football before Ozil’s header in the 58th minute appeared to settle it. 2-0.
However a spirited Norwich side languishing at the relegation zone came back soundly as Jonny Howson found the bottom corner with 20 minutes left to fray nerves. At 2-1 things did not look settled for Arsenal and they players needed a break. But Aaron Ramsey scored a lovely ninth goal of the season, waltzing through the defense and faking two shots before scoring to make it 3-1 and Ozil grabbed an easy second. Although Norwich threatened on several occasions, the visitors were caught out by three moments of class as Arsenal warned up for their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday with a clinical win. Defeat meant Chris Hughton’s Norwich side have lost four of their last five league games and remain in the bottom three.
Arsenal with 8 games played have 19 goals at sit at the top of the league with Chelsea & Liverpool just 2 points behind. Manchester United drew again and are 8 points behind at the 8th spot.
