Arsenal boosted their chances of securing European football for next season with a comprehensive 4-0 win over relegation-threatened Norwich.
The Gunners again benefited from some poor goalkeeping as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang capitalised on Tim Krul’s error to open the scoring before Granit Xhaka finished a fine move to double his side’s advantage at the break.
Aubameyang extended the lead after the break with his 19th Premier League goal of the season, pouncing on another unforced error from the visitors before Cedric Soares made an instant impact on his Arsenal debut to seal a big win for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Victory sees Arsenal move above rivals Tottenham into seventh, six points behind sixth-placed Wolves ahead of the Gunners’ crucial clash at Molineux.
Meanwhile, Norwich’s survival hopes are hanging by a thread. Defeat leaves Daniel Farke’s side six points adrift of safety with six games remaining.
