Arsenal held by Norwich
Arsenal’s first game of the post-Unai Emery era saw them travel to Norwich on Sunday.
Freddie Ljungberg would be the man in the Arsenal dugout at Carrow Road, after he was appointed interim boss on Friday.
Ljungberg probably couldn’t have asked for a much easier tie, as Norwich began Sunday sat 19th in the English top-flight.
However, the Gunners didn’t get the afternoon they were likely hoping for, as Teemu Pukki ended his goal drought to fire the Canaries into the lead 21 minutes in on Sunday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did pull one back for Arsenal from the spot just eight minutes later.
But another one of Norwich’s standout stars this season, Todd Cantwell, would restore the home side’s lead shortly before the interval.
Aubameyang would once again come to Arsenal’s rescue, though, salvaging the north London outfit a 2-2 draw.
Highlights: Norwich 2-Arsenal 2
Arsenal winless in six
The draw with relegation-battling Norwich kept Arsenal 8th in the Premier League, and a fair way away from a Champions League spot.
And, after being held by Norwich, a rather concerning stat has come to light.
Arsenal are now eight games without a win across all competitions this term.
The Gunners are also six games without a win in the Premier League. According to Opta, Arsenal have not gone six PL games without a win in a single season since December of 1994, when they were managed by George Graham.
