With three tremendous saves in the opening 45 minutes, the Canaries keeper made a solid case for himself getting on that plane to Brazil as part of the England set-up. Denied Giroud and Podolski but could do nothing against Ramsey's thunderbolt.
Dealt with Podolski well for most of the game, but occasionally allowed the Arsenal man to wander into the box and create chances, one of which was nearly converted.
The centre-back did well to keep Giroud from being too much of a nuisance, but sometimes lost sight of the Frenchman, paying the price for this when the Arsenal man set up Ramsey for the visitors' first.
Worked well with Redmond on the left, but ultimately made little impression on the game.
Found himself being swarmed over by Arsenal players during the visitors' attacks and looked a little bamboozled at times as a result. However, a defiant block inside the penalty area displayed his defensive talent.
Like his fellow midfielders, Howson was outshone by his opposing counterparts who constantly passed the ball around him.
The Norwich attacker was full of energy from the first whistle after being brought back into the starting line-up and looked to terrorise Arsenal immediately. Tested Fabianski with a curling effort that almost sneaked in at the near post.
Found it difficult dealing with the superior qualities of the Arsenal midfield and was subbed just after the break as a result.
The former Leeds man was his usual aggressive self in the middle of the park, but was outdone by the opposition.
Struggled against the likes of Ramsey and Arteta in the middle and looked a little lost at times.
The attacker made next to no difference in the game and struggled to get any sort of chance at goal before being subbed.
It was a relatively quiet day for the Pole, who was awarded a rare league start, though he made two key saves from rare Norwich attacks.
A suitably strong performance from the Frenchman who let very little past him and made easy work of Elmander.
It was a special day for the full-back as he scored his first senior goal for Arsenal following a scuffle for the ball in the Norwich box, allowing him to slot home. The defender was constantly high up the field on the right, although struggled at times with Redmond’s agility.
Playing what could be his last game for Arsenal, Sagna defended well alongside Koscielny in the middle, making numerous blocks and clearances.
The left-back was constantly in the mix when the visitors were on the attack and defended well when they weren’t. Gibbs’ main contribution came in the second-half, placing the ball across the middle of the Norwich box for Jenkinson to eventually put past Ruddy.
A solid game for the midfielder who worked well alongside Arteta in the middle and kept Arsenal going forward.
The Spaniard made the odd mistake here and there in possession, but eventually began to overrule the pressure from the home midfield with some great passing.
The Germany international had a somewhat quiet game at Carrow Road and didn’t make too much of an impact, but did make the odd key pass to give Arsenal momentum up top.
Took a few minutes to find his feet in the game, but the Welshman caught up and began to dictate play well in the middle. His defining moment of the game came just after the break, volleying in at the far post in spectacular fashion to put Arsenal ahead.
Arsenal’s man up top was handed two great chances to put the visitors ahead in the first half, but two great saves from Ruddy matched the Frenchman’s efforts. The striker made up for his misses with a brilliant floated ball to the back post for Ramsey to volley past Ruddy.
The attacker might have put Arsenal in the lead if it wasn’t for a cracking save from Ruddy. Could have set up a goal after a pinpoint pass set Giroud down the middle, but the Frenchman couldn’t convert.
