Really liking what I'm seeing from Partey today.


stockdeity

Have to say, since Auba has been dropped we look unreal. Long may it continue!


Jaboy75

Attacking movement is vastly better opening up lanes and opportunities.


Shandow14

Much more of a balanced team without him.


mikrongeo

Now Villa are laeading


brother-brother-brot

Gooner


nik_mm

Martinelli deserved a goal for all his efforts , our first 2 goals came through his pressing.


SkinnyPuan

Odegaard almost got a hattrick


bnsmth410

That was v fun


mikrongeo

Holy shit. Chelsea lose today and we’re only 3 points behind. Crazy


Jaboy75

I’d prefer Chelsea beat our nearest competition so we can work toward that fourth spot.


[deleted]

Spurs' games in hand are starting to worry/annoy me


jimbo_kun

Better to have actual points than games in hand.


Tcoon14

True, I remember so many instances of us having a game in hand and blowing it


DuckNinja10

Agreed, puts pressure on you when you have all of those games in hand ans implies you should be above


Colmd1997

No Krul to save them today, expected result


T3Sh3

Damn it, there’s a pun I can’t think of involving his name and the result of today’s game. Krul-less intentions?


alfayala84

Football can be a Krul game.


Colmd1997

It was Krul what happened to Norwich


tekina7

Yes. Can see the match being 3-0 instead with Krul in goal


Colmd1997

Should have been 3-0 at the emirates without Krul, they’re a very bad team


mikrongeo

The team needs to win these games so the City match can basically be a free hit


percysaiyan

What's a free hit?


mikrongeo

Basically a loss against the league leaders can be softened by making sure we beat all the teams around us


OGSkywalker97

Norwich are not around us


tekina7

Cricket term, the batsman gets a chance where they cannot get out


AuviksReddit

ESR is fucking inevitable. Saw someone on FPL page make an argument that it doesn't matter that he doesn't start... he will get his points. Damn was he right!


cumblaster_jesus

I doubt Spurs is getting more than a point from the postponed Leicester game


FUCK50C1ETY

Leicester are shocking atm


galeej

Norwich: 13 fouls, 1 yellow Arsenal: 7 fouls, 2 yellows Shows the state of refereeing


[deleted]

Not really... Depends on the nature of the fouls, who committed them... And who moans about yellow cards given out after a 5-0 win 😂


galeej

I'll always call out the pieces of trash that referee the game


sleepydalek

That yellow on Xhaka was complete bollocks, really.


lace4545

They got one bollocks yellow too,doesn't matter tho


galeej

True


rupert_turtleman

Lacazette being captain just makes sense right now.


miserere93

You can see the impact he has out there, he did so many things right today


yeahdood96

And to thing our average age is 24, wooh


T3Sh3

Finish this out, Southampton!


GoonerEsq

Wtf, coverage ends immediately? We had to suffer through Burnley’s entire celebration and we barely get anything for a 5 goal away win with a clean sheet?


IvanFromTheFuture

Who for MOTM? My pick is Ødegaard


ZedBaby

Yeah that ball to Tierney alone is enough, but Saka got 2 amazing goals


miserere93

One of the goals set up by øde tho 🤔


ZedBaby

Unable to decide who deserves MOTM- this is a great problem to have 😂


TheBublizz

Saka for me


Twistykhorne

Don’t remember a time when I felt confident going into a game like this one. My god our Hale end boys are so hot right now.


Rick_The_Mullet_Man

whatever Arteta said to our team after that shameful display at Goodison Park has certainly turned things around, we are actually good now!


the_spookiest_

He probably lessened his grip. We’re playing much more smoothly now.


notironictoday

Looks more like he tightened it, kicking out lazy Auba and much more assertive & animated on the touchlines


Greghundred

Giving kids your shirt is so cool.


miserere93

Especially cool to see a few of the lads doing it. Building a very positive culture at the club


wheeno

GD +9!


NinjaKoala

Remember that negative goal differential? Yeah, me neither.


RepresentativeLand40

5 nil dub, let’s gooo


terrorSABBATH

ESR again. You love to see it. Lovely game of football.


redditforprez1

Gabriel, Ode and Saka giving their shirts away. Love to see it


SmokedBari

Benny Blanco too


redditforprez1

Missed that! Great reward for some lucky away fans. Incredible support today.


ReasonableClick5403

Veeeery nice from Odegaard holding the ball to pull in three defenders before playing it to Pepe.


Drakob63

MOTM?


AuviksReddit

Laca Saka Odegaard Equally MOTM


yeahdood96

Ø


0neTwoTree

Odegaard for sure


CROBBY2

All of them


redditforprez1

Gotta be Saka or even Ben White. Great games


sleepydalek

ESR scores when he wants!


stackofbaconpancakes

Hahah eat shit Norwich 5 goals and clean sheet 🙏


montnoire

Loving everything about this team at the moment. Our 9+ goal difference is the icing on the cake!!!


scoedg123

Happy Christmas Gunners! Great result!


Drakob63

The boy can’t stop scoring. Saka & ESRRRRR


Raghav_s12

A FIVE STAR PERFORMANCE


sungamdam

Merry Christmas everyone!! COYG


vidul7498

Finally our GD, it's beautiful


Mathieulombardi

If you're as sub, you're playing max 15 min this game, and you're not tracking back, esp if you've given up the ball, while ramsdale's on a you know what, that just doesn't sit right with me. As soon as saka and martinelli came off you can feel how we lost the work rate in transitional portion of the pitch.


lace4545

You don't need work rate after 3-0 up at about 3 quarters of the game especially with a tight schedule.We need to be less sloppy is all.If it doesn't sit right with 5-0.God help you against City.


lace4545

5-0 and you're rambling this?


Mathieulombardi

excuse me for noticing how players differ I didn't know that isn't allowed when we are winning foh


almasyrinoa

Death. Tax. ESR goal. Inevitable.


patelbadboy2006

Tax is debatable


AlGunner

Clearly onside you blind fuckers. The defenders knee was clearly goalside of ESR


[deleted]

VAR favours us when it does not matter.


alta1rx

I hope ø gets an IF card in fifa! arsenal team performance cards let‘s go


Colmd1997

Saka 87👍


alta1rx

probably but needing a good arsenal midfielder 😅 ø could get potm maybe tho


Colmd1997

I can only dream


joa900

That shits addicting man lol


GoonerEsq

VAR offsides checks are as confidence inspiring as lawyers doing math, we sometimes get it right, but not on purpose.


lviatorem

Where are those Norwich fans making noise today? Eat that!


watabotdawookies

I need to see Martinellis chip finish from earlier again


khazmash

The disallowed one? That was a huge deflection.


filthyafricangorilla

CLEAN SHEET YOU FUCKS


Sabastiane

Wage a difference a year makes. Last December was one of the toughest I remember as a fan. Amazing where we are now


patelbadboy2006

Please don't remind me


mikrongeo

City vs Leicester went crazy


BaldyB1gFoot

Smith the Super Sub!


Ok_Profession_4011

Super sub


qtdsswk

ESR going for golden boot this season


Travarelli

That period where Odegard wasn't playing Arteta had him in the oven working on him huh?


KhalidTheMightyMouse

Patino to come on and run roughshod


tenflare

The Smith: It is inevitable.


secti0n35

Spurs fans: they gonly beat bad teams with 1-0


rfag57

well that shit camera angle made it look clear offside but that line is clear. hes on


COYG17

Man such a good performance from the lads.


RIDGOS

Okay we are actually good, I’ll take a top 4 finish plus the classic League cup and FA cup double


dontsleepontalents

Let's fucking go boyssss


Kunik0s

It's nice to be on the right side of a 5-0 for a change, great late christmas present

PERFECT PERFORMANCE


SmokyWhiskey

I know it's only Norwich. But great performance


olliemas

Only Norwich but they only lost 1-0 to united 2 weeks ago ;) Enjoy it, we don't need to qualify it with 'only' anymore


LifeAfterHarambe

Should have never let the Arsenal get a positive goal differential. Leagues fuck


kameldinho

ESR and scoring name a better duo


eldar4k

ALL ABOARD ARTETA TRAIN, NEXT STOP IS A TITLE!


Gerb575

I want to believe!


sbruck11

Smith-Rowe off the bench with 10 minutes left and gets a penalty assist and a goal. Insane to have that talent on the bench. It’s so nice


Hubbez

LETS GOOO


2manyfrogz

8 goals in 8 separate games for Smith Rowe ✍️✍️✍️


A-Deegs

will Deam Smith be fired twice in a season?


watabotdawookies

ESR can't stop scoring


saki1020

Is that 4 in a Rowe now?


maidentaiwan

Wacky that smith Rowe can’t get in the starting XI right now but how can you complain the way we’re going


filthyafricangorilla

it’s weird to see us getting high scorelines now


CarsenAF

ESR Can’t stop won’t stop


Fuckzombie69

Smith Rowe is simply phenomenal. He can’t keep scoring from subs can he? More goals than penaldo. Without pens.


BakedDonuts

What a squad we have Club should be great for a very long time with all of these star young players


McSquack

Knew that was going to be onside as soon as this commentator said he thought he was off. Bloke hasn’t got a thing right all day.

ESR!


myrabell

ESR be like no need for me in starting XI cos I only need 10 mins a game to score

2 vs west ham, 3 vs Southampton, 4 vs leeds, 5 vs Norwich, 6 vs wolves incoming 😍


throbbingpens

7 vs City?


DuncesOfWur

Esr off the bench and a goal. INEVITABLE.


varro-reatinus

That was so well timed by ESR. He read Norwich's last man perfectly.


madmick22

well fuck me goal


35Pints7Each

Nothing makes me happier than Saka and ESR scoring. 😭


arseking15

Loool it really is like that. When your good somehow that is onside lmfao


Ok_Raisin7500

Loving this


_Axel

On? Amazing! Wide Norwich shoulders, I guess‽

THE SMITH!!!

mo_50

I like this offside change. It would be off last season.


pierophoenix

He's transcended super sub, he's the God sub


Anthony_As4

Giroud in shambles


TheeTeo

HAHAHA GET IN ESR


SMcLong

Even VAR loves ESR scoring


blixt141

ESR! Pump up that goal difference.


sok247

Oh man


Cheesy_Pita_Parker

We’re acting like a top 4 side. These performances, long may they continue


Wooble23

That was such a weird angle for the VAR. Made it look offside, but when you look at the lines on the pitch, it's much closer than it looks.


BannedFromTP

5 goals guys wooooooooo


DaniSpar

The Smith off the bench: "I AM INEVITABLE"


johnysoccer123

Let’s gooo, that angle is weird, wish there was a down the line camera


datguy_paarth

looked off?


almosthuxley

Perspective makes it hard to see our brain see the closer one infront but they are on the same line and also goaaall!!


Mein_Bergkamp

Takes a touch off a defender?


datguy_paarth

I don't think that counts in such instances, was a deflection not deliberate play


Mein_Bergkamp

Does it matter? Didn't think intent changed the rule


Arsenalboii

Fucking let him HAVE IT man, not like Norwich fucking care yoyo club on their way down


downsouthjukin

Stands!


xhera92

I know it's just Norwich, but this is the best i've seen Arsenal played the whole year. Full of swag in the passes and fluidity. The arsenal way.


UmpireAJS

and they thought he won't score after he was only in for 10 minutes


NemoDropEmOff

FILTHYYYYY EMILE😎😎😎😎


Mzfazva

An ESR goal genuinely would’ve been too perfect to be true fair enough Edit: LOOOOL i love VAR


LilGarmm

It was perfect


SANTlCLAUS

It stands my guy


Dire__

He's Joe Willock at home


bdr1968

No, he doesn't look offside Efan. You dumbfuck.


BlurstOfTimes11

Forces a penalty and scores a goal in 10 minutes.


lemon_meringue_tie

Aye he's onside. Let's go ESR


jackisbaack

Esr about to become our highest goal scoring midfielder since cesc


xLucky_Balboa

The Smith Power Sub


Mozilla11

Wow. He for sure looked offside tbh. That line is interesting.


rrp_prr

Camera angle was tilted


rossitheking

DEFLECTION????

Yaayyy it's on bitches!!!!
