Arsenal vs Norwich (4-0): Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the winner, with two goals, of a night in which Arsenal thrashed without much trouble to a blurred Norwich. Norwich paved the way for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal on Wednesday, 7th and in a fight to qualify for Europe, towards victory with two errors in defense that took advantage of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to achieve a double (in addition to an assist) and position himself ‘Pichichi ‘of the Premier alongside Jamie Vardy (both with 19 goals). The visit of the bottom of the English championship (which is 6 points from salvation) provided a placid afternoon for the ‘gunners’. Xhaka and rookie Cedric Soares scored as well.
Arsenal vs Norwich: Match Overview
And that the first great occasion was at the Emirates Norwich, a shot by Ben Godfrey to the crossbar. Then a failure of Tim Krul, goalkeeper of the last classified of the Premier; allowed Aubameyang to get ahead in the Emirates. They are the two faces of soccer. It was the 33rd minute.
Four minutes later, at 37 ‘, Granit Xakha increased Arteta’s advantage, following a pass from Aubameyang. Emiliano Martinez also prevented Norwich from closing the gap already in the first half discount with a great free-kick from Kenny McLean.
Again a mistake by Norwich allowed Aubameyang to score, this time the third in the afternoon. It was Josip Drmic, who had entered the second half through Teemu Pukki, who committed it in 67 ‘. Willock had another chance, a high shot by Joseph Willock.
Cedrick Soares chased this season by injuries entered the 77’ for Hector Bellerin; and rounded off a shot from outside the area 4-0 a very hard punishment for a Norwich; that perhaps did not deserve such a bulky score. The game of the ‘gunners’ was not as spectacular as the result could imply, but they took advantage of the facilities given by Daniel Farke’s team.
