Norwich recorded a deserved first Barclays Premier League win under new manager Chris Hughton as lacklustre Arsenal were beaten 1-0 at Carrow Road.

The Gunners, who included England midfielder Jack Wilshere in the squad after more than a year out with injury, were second best all afternoon as Grant Holt's scrambled effort on 20 minutes following a mistake by goalkeeper Vito Mannone proved enough for all three points to move the hosts out of the relegation zone.

Arsenal, who have now lost two of their past three league games, were well below the usual fluent best and created very few openings as for once the Premier League's second worst defence held firm.
