Carabao cup; Arsenal 2-1 Norwich
Arsenal succeed to go to another stage after fantastic winning of yesterday carabao clash against Norwich. Arsenal got another point after their young star Nketiah net 2 goals 5 minutes before ending of game. Wenger idea on introduce new players in that match rescue himself from critism on his duties for upcoming games.
These are 4 things that we learned after the match end;
Nketiah could be future
A young star shows a fantastic possession in just 5 minutes thing that could give hope both team manager and fans to do better for upcoming games. He played well and show great talent enough to rescue his side from flopping. Many football supporters believe that he could be a future player of Arsenal for upcoming years.
Wilshere has to stay calm and focus
Since he returns to Arsenal become frustrated on games thing that could make him lose some weight on big matches just like last one. He played some bad fouls in the way that is not necessary and he looks frustrated on game after his side beaten 1 goal before Nketiah rescue them 5 minutes before end of the match. For some extent he proves to as potential for club for upcoming matches.
Walcott is not good as before
It’s hard to believe Walcott is 28 years old and has been at the Emirates club since 2006. But he has, and tonight, he should have done more.
Walcott should have been commanding this team of Arsenal youngsters, showing Wenger exactly why he deserves a place in the first team.
But he didn’t. Walcott’s made just nine appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season, and has scored three times.
Welcome to Arsenal, Matt Macey
“He has outstanding basic qualities because his size is exceptional, but he’s also very quick for a boy of that size,” said Wenger, waxing lyrical about the young goalkeeper ahead of the game.
“He’s very, very quick, agile, has worked very hard technically and has improved. He has a fantastic mentality. The last step is that you have to grab that chance when you get it.”
The 23-year-old 6ft 7in goalkeeper definitely attempted to take his manager’s words on board, what with David Ospina missing the game with a groin problem and Emiliano Martinez out on loan at Getafe.
Norwich haven’t lost for two months
Last time out the Canaries beat their bitter rivals Ipswich Town in the Championship and were full of confidence going into this game.
And the showed it.
They haven’t been beaten since returning after the August international break, which is pretty sensational, and showed Arsenal no respect in their own back yard on Tuesday.
In the first half Murphy broke the deadlock with a cheeky effort while Harrison Reed showed he was happy to fight with the best of them.
While in the second the Canaries continued to test the Gunners, and actually carved out better chances than their more illustrious opposition.
Very unlucky to concede late on and eventually lose the match, and can certainly be proud of their performance.
