rsenal left Carrow Road on Boxing Day with three points in the bag and knowing that even though their game against Wolves on Tuesday has been postponed, they will start 2022 in the Premier League top four.

Such a feat was achieved with a fourth consecutive League victory and a dominating performance from Arsenal, one of their best of the season.

People will rightly point out that it was Norwich who remains at the bottom of the table, but Mikel Arteta’s side put them to the sword with emphatic style to win 5-0.

“It was really good [today]”Said Arteta.” A really traditional day in this country and playing football in that atmosphere, it was great.

“I think we played and played really well, we were very consistent and a real threat throughout the game and I’m really happy with the way we attacked and defended.”

Arsenal look like an evolving team which is not what you thought when they left Carrow Road in December 2019.

It was, before Boxing Day, the last time Arsenal had visited Norwich in the Premier League and at the time the club were undergoing a transformation.

Only two players who started this match were part of the eleven who won 5-0 on Boxing Day, Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka, while half of the 18-man squad either left the club or are now on loan.

It took a while, but this Arsenal team has transformed under Arteta and now his project is really starting to take shape.
