With Chelsea and Tottenham not in action this weekend because of the FA Cup semi-finals, the Gunners had the chance to put Champions League qualification back in their own hands. However, the Canaries - who still need a couple of wins to secure top-flight status - produced a resolute battling display and took the lead on 56 minutes through Michael Turner's close-range header.

With the clock ticking, Arsenal were handed a way back into the match when the assistant referee spotted a shirt pull on Olivier Giroud by Kei Kamara. Mikel Arteta kept his cool from the spot to level, before Giroud's close-range effort turned the match around and substitute Lukas Podolski wrapped things up in stoppage time.e from 18 yards.
