Bukayo Saka hits brace as five-star Arsenal wallop Norwich

Arsenal consolidated their position in fourth on the Premier League log with a routine 5-0 win at rock bottom Norwich.

Goals from Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney put the result beyond much doubt before half-time.

Saka added a second before Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty and substitute Emile Smith Rowe rounded off a fifth consecutive win for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Tottenham on the rise

Tottenham moved up to fifth, six points behind their north London rivals but with three games in hand, after easing past a depleted Crystal Palace.

Palace’s request for the game to be postponed was dismissed by the Premier League despite a coronavirus outbreak that left them without manager Patrick Vieira.

The Eagles were still able to field a strong side that featured just one change from their previous outing.

However, a rejuvenated Spurs under Antonio Conte never looked back after scoring twice in two minutes just after the half-hour.

Harry Kane swept home just his third Premier League goal of the season before Lucas Moura powered in a header.

Palace’s task was made even tougher when Wilfried Zaha was sent-off for two bookable offences before half-time.

Son Heung-min added a third 16 minutes from time.

West Ham’s bid for the top four is falling apart fast as they were beaten 3-2 at home by Southampton.

The Saints led three times through Mohamed Elyounoussi, James Ward-Prowse and Jan Bednarek and held out to move nine points clear of the bottom three.
