Arsenal are through to the fifth round of the Carabao Cup after beating Norwich 2-1 at the Emirates.

Thanks to a certain 18-year-old called Eddie Nketiah, the Gunners are through to the next round of the League Cup despite being 1-0 down – and deservedly so – for 86 minutes.

The entire team, even the likes of Jack Wilshere, were dragging their feet and despite Reiss Nelson putting in a decent shift early on, the while starting XI were mostly disjointed and stagnant.

Eddie changed that when he came on in the 85th minute and scored within seconds of being on the pitch.

The teenager then put Arsenal 2-1 up in the fifth minute of extra time.

Here’s how the Gunners did individually.

1. Defence

Matt Macey – 6

The poor bloke was chipped on his first team debut after rushing out.

Mathieu Debuchy – 6

The defender wasn’t the quickest but was reasonably solid again.

Mohamed Elneny – 5.5

The midfielder is no centre-back. He wasn’t terrible but was slow and made stupid mistakes. As did most of the team.

Rob Holding – 5

Holding was pretty much invisible.
