Arsenal rose to their clear favorite early on after winning three consecutive league wins: after Tierney won the ball, Arsenal pulled a superb relay from right to left, and eventually Saka hit the far corner (sixth). After that, the two teams rehearsed in the warm atmosphere of Christmas. Norwich barely got the ball over their midfield, and Arsenal have rarely settled despite the ball’s dominance. Only scorer Saka caused disturbances with a cross on an unfocused Lacazette (27) and an overhead kick over the gate (29).

In the absence of a still suspended Aubameyang, there was a lack of penetration otherwise – until Odegaard found left-back Tierney with a superb pass, who hit his left at full speed to lead Arsenal 2-0 in the first half (44).

Saka collects his first double pack

Less than an hour had passed since the weak bottom light hit Arsenal for the first and only time with Gilmore’s skewed shot (59), but soon all hopes of a small Christmas miracle for the hosts faded. In the smoke: Saka playful danced right into the Williams penalty area and completed with a steady touch into the far corner (67). It was the 20-year-old’s first Premier League double. He had already scored last on Boxing Day, at the time in the 3-1 win over Chelsea.
