22 min: And a decent chance for Lacazette there, as Arsenal counter well again. Ceballos finds him with a perfectly-weighted cross and, running onto the ball unmarked, he thuds his header straight at Krul. He should have done better.
20 min: Godfrey hits the post! Norwich make a rare excursion upfield and the ball is played back to Godfrey, who has space to move into and is under little pressure. So he pings one from fully 25 yards – it’s a fantastic strike and beats Martinez, but smacks off the outside of his right stick. Closest yet!
19 min: It’s certainly fair to say Arsenal are completely dominant, without battering that hard at the door. Norwich are sitting in and seeing little of the ball. Now Nelson chips a cross in but Krul is well placed to save Aubameyang’s fairly soft header.
17 min: What Arsenal are doing well is getting their wing-backs, Tierney and Bellerin, forward and high. It’s meaning, in turn, that the considerable attacking capabilities of Norwich full-backs Lewis and Aarons are nullified. Everton now lead Leicester 2-0 at Goodison!
8 min: Norwich enjoy a good, prolonged spell of possession inside their own half although it doesn’t really get them anywhere and, eventually, Arsenal get the ball back. Building from the back so religiously really has to work brilliantly when it does pay off. Arsenal almost make them pay by releasing Bellerin, who this time does get in – but Tettey defends his cutback well.
4 min: McLean gives possession to Ceballos and Arsenal can counter, something they are fairly good at, with men over on the left. But Buendia is back tigerishly to charge down Tierney’s attempted delivery.
