It was probably the toughest game of the season. I had a lot of trouble finding a good TV stream to watch the game, but between buffering and interruptions, I managed to keep up with at least half of it.
But the game went as smoothly for Arsenal as expected with Bukayo Saka finds path through sea of legs to put Arsenal in the lead after just six minutes and there was little danger from Rock Bottom Norwich, with the Gunners having two-thirds of the possession.
Just before half-time, Kieran Tierney managed to double our lead and it was pretty straightforward after the break, and the exhausted Norwich side looked tired and battered.
When Saka got his second in the 67th minute it was all over as a contest, especially since the Canaries had only 2 shots on target in the entire game.
It looked like Arsenal would go all the way, but for a change the Gunners went for the throat and Lacazette made it 4 with just 5 minutes on the clock, when Smith-Rowe came to replace Odegaard, and one more Times the youngster fulfilled his role as a supersub by scoring our fifth and final goal after a lengthy VAR investigation to see if he was offside.
An easy win as expected, and let’s hope everyone is still fit enough to face Wolves on Tuesday…
