Arsenal’s winless Premier League run has continued with Freddie Ljungberg’s who made his first Premier League appearance with a 2-2 draw against struggling Norwich after Unai Emery was sacked few days back.
The Gunners, with Ljungberg at the helm on an interim basis after Unai Emery was sacked on Friday, have not won for eight games.
Playing 2-2 draw against Norwich brought Arsenal to an eight winless games and eight position in the Premier League table, seven points off a place in the top four, meanwhile, Norwich seats on 19th position, just three points from safety zone.
The Gunners started the match very well, but still had to deal with an epileptic defensive system as Teemu Pukki ended his eight-game goalless run with a shot that deflected off Shkodran Mustafi.
The hosts’ lead only lasted eight minutes though, with Christoph Zimmermann penalised for handball and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelling for the visitors with a retaken penalty, after four Norwich players had encroached when his original effort was saved by Tim Krul.
A very bad Arsenal defensive structure permitted Todd Cantwell to re-launch Norwich’s lead, with the midfielder scheming through the Gunners defence and placing an effort into the bottom corner on the stroke of half-time.
Same Aubameyang scored the equaliser, turning in a loose ball from a corner to ensure Arsenal doesn’t lose it share of the point, although it didn’t fix the odds of the Arsenal’s winless Premier League run.
Arsenal who fired its head coach for a poor performance of the club may need to look more intently into its defence system if they must have a healthy run of a Premier League game.
