Jamie Redknapp has hailed Jack Wilshere’s opener in Arsenal’s 4-1 win against Norwich City as one of the all-time great team goals.

The 22-year-old England midfielder finished off a sweeping Gunners move which involved five players and nine passes to break the deadlock at The Emirates on Saturday.

Mesut Ozil went on to net a brace whilst Aaron Ramsey bagged his fifth top-flight goal of the season as Arsenal moved two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

And former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Redknapp described Wilshere’s stunning goal as a “moment of great beauty”.

“It was the finest team goal of the season and one of the greatest you are likely to see.

“The wonder of Arsenal’s football has often been used as a stick to beat them with. Not enough end product and certainly not enough trophies.

“So let us appreciate the first goal in a 4-1 win against Norwich that took them clear at the top.

“Finished by an Englishman and involving the same Englishman in four phases of the move. Maybe Greg Dyke and his commission don’t have such a difficult job after all.

“I thought last week that if Jack Wilshere can’t get in our England team, we can’t be too badly off for players, can we?

“Belgium are considered a World Cup team to marvel at, but Wilshere would get in their starting line-up. Anyway, that’s a debate for another day. This is a celebration of Arsenal’s moment of great beauty.”
