Arsenal fans have urged the board to sign Norwich star Todd Cantwell after his impressive performance against Tottenham. The Canaries knocked Spurs out of the FA Cup on Wednesday after winning 3-2 on penalties, following a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Cantwell was among Daniel Farke’s players who hit the target from the penalty spot and his celebration caught the eye of Gunners fans as he put his finger to his lips in a shushing gesture towards the Tottenham fans behind the goal.
The Arsenal faithful then took to Twitter to praise the England under-21 international and called on the club’s bigwigs to sign him in the summer.
One fan tweeted: “Todd Cantwell shushing the Tottenham fans after scoring his penalty. Bring him to Emirates already.”
Another saw him as a proper Arsenal representative: “Proper Gooner.”

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho refused to blame his players for the elimination as he claimed they put together a solid performance.
Mourinho said: “That’s football. That’s football. I think the team defended very well today. We were very solid. Very compact.
“Even in great difficulties, I think the boys they were quite solid in relation to the qualities they have. A clean sheet was very close. The game was controlled.
“Of course I had, and sometimes people don’t understand my decisions, but they don’t know what is going on, Lucas [Moura] and [Steven] Bergwijn they told me ‘out immediately because I am very close to being injured’.

“So I had to take them out in a moment where the result is 1-0 and there is always a risk of happening what happened.
“Then of course and Michel [Vorm] is not going to be upset with me because Michel is such an incredible guy and such an experienced boy, of course it’s a Michel mistake. We cannot run away from this but we are all together.
“After the goal, after the mistake, with all the respect for Norwich, I’m not criticising them at all but we were the team that was close to winning in 90 minutes.
“Serge [Aurier] hit the post, I saw the ball inside and then in extra-time we were the team that tried. Again I would expect [Erik] Lamela to play 15 minutes, instead he played 60 minutes and he did so well.
“Giovani [Lo Celso] did so well, Gedson [Fernandes] had great opportunities to score as well. The boys did everything they could.
“I think they deserved to win the game in 90 minutes and in extra-time. Penalties is penalties and they scored, congratulations to them.”
