The Gunners were favored by some poor goalkeeping as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang used the opportunity of Tim Krul’s error to open the scoring before Granit Xhaka finished a fine move to double his side’s advantage at the break.
Arsenal boosted their chances of securing European football for next season with a huge 4-0 win over Norwich which is relegation-threatened.
Aubameyang scored his 19th Premier League goal of the season just minutes after the break, 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.
The victory placed Arsenal above their north rivals Tottenham into seventh, six points behind sixth-placed Wolves before the Gunners will face Wolves in a crucial clash at Molineux on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Norwich’s survival hopes are hanging by a thread. The defeat leaves Daniel Farke’s side six points off safety with six games remaining.
