Obviously Pukki was going to score against us after his goalless streak was a hot topic #NORARS

Trust man like Pukki to end his goal drought against us

Obviously Pukki was gonna break his goal scoring drought against Banter FC

Did Mustafi or Luiz not think about, y’know, closing down the attacker? Gave Pukki all the time in the world to get his shot away. Schoolboy stuff. #NORARS

AUBAMEYANG HAS HIS PENALTY SAVED BY KRUL!
— FiT News (@FiTEPLFeed) December 1, 2019
Krul is the keeper to pick if you need a penalty saved. No debate. What a player. #NORARS
— Prashanth (@ThePrashanthS) December 1, 2019
TIM KRUL HAS SAVED 4 PENS THIS SEASON
— #VanneyIN (@HoldiniMagic) December 1, 2019
Did Auba just 狼 Krul after he originally saved his penalty? shameless ffs
— J (@JxmesCFC) December 1, 2019
hahahahahah Auba shushing Krul after VAR took away his saved pen is kinda cruel
— Sean Wagner-McGough (@seanjwagner) December 1, 2019
Aubameyang’s pen saved by Krul but encroachment so retake it is. When are players going to learn? #NORARS
— Paul Swinburn (@PSwinburn) December 1, 2019
Max Arrons was in the box when Aubameyang took the pen and was the first player to react after Krul saved it. VAR was correct
— ⱮӠⱮɀ (@M3_Arsenal) December 1, 2019
Honestly don’t understand how VAR can be to blamed for the Aubameyang retake – there was clear encroachment. Yes VAR hasn’t been great this year but it got that right, no debate #FPL #NORARS

It was a deserved goal, but Arsenal’s defensive problems flared up once again before the half-time whistle as Norwich City retook the lead just seconds before the break.
Onel Hernández was once again involved in the build-up, but this time it was Todd Cantwell who finished off the move to continue his fine scoring form against the Premier League’s so-called ‘Big Six’.
It was a stunning goal from an exciting young player.
That celebration, on the other hand…
Pass it into the net finishes are the best… Love that Cantwell goal. What an exciting young talent.

He’s not getting much credit, but under the radar, Todd Cantwell is having a cracking season at Norwich #NORARS
— Samantha Quek (@SamanthaQuek) December 1, 2019
Arsenal’s back-four so poor. Good break by Hernandez, and Cantwell’s a fine prospect, took the goal well, but such weak marking, reacting late. 2-1 #NORARS
— Henry Winter (@henrywinter) December 1, 2019
You’ve got to admire Todd Cantwell’s desire to get a celebration into FIFA21
— Ben Carr / DoctorBenjyFM (@DoctorBenjy) December 1, 2019
Arsenal fans. We Evertonians have been on the end of a Cantwell goal. And more humiliatingly, a Cantwell goal celebration. The pain only lasts for about 3 weeks

Arsenal came out the blocks in the second half and looked destined to score their equaliser, something which eventually came via Aubameyang’s second of the game.
The striker reacted quickest from a corner and found a way past Krul with a confident finish, offering hope that Arsenal could complete a comeback and end their seven-game winless run across all competitions.
World class striker this Aubameyang fella
— FKA Selassie (@SomeMusicGuyInc) December 1, 2019
Norwich fans refuse to give the ball back to Ozil. Ozil asks for a new one, puts the corner in, and Aubameyang scores. Ozil turns straight to the Norwich fans and celebrates in front of them. Terrific levels of petty beef on show today.
— Sam Dean (@SamJDean) December 1, 2019
Honestly, Arsenal would be relegated without Aubameyang
— Matt Stokes (@mattjsto) December 1, 2019
At what point do they just make Aubameyang the manager?
— Jonathan Williamson (@JonoWilly) December 1, 2019
Arsenal started to take control of the match as the clock ticked in but couldn’t find that vital winner, while Norwich’s rare counter-attacks were equally ineffective and both sides were forced to share the points on Sunday.
It was a deserved point for both teams, although both sets of fans will be walking away from Carrow Road feeling like it’s points dropped.
Here’s some of the post-match reaction after an exciting, end-to-end game in Norfolk…
A disappointing result for Ljungberg to begin with but a definite step in the right direction. Particularly in the first half Arsenal controlled the game in a way they rarely did under Emery this season. Norwich are great fun, showed real discipline at the back and broke well.
— James Benge (@jamesbenge) December 1, 2019
Norwich really unlucky to get all three points. By far the better team today.
— Arnab Banerjee (@MUTonnage) December 1, 2019
However long Freddie Ljungberg is managing Arsenal for, we need a bit of patience. He made mistakes today and that’s understandable. But that was a markedly more positive performance after one training session.
— Mark White (@markwhlte) December 1, 2019
A much better team performance, Arsenal. Signs of improvement from a change of style. Onwards.
— Dr. Val Krishna Seecheran (@DrVaSeech) December 1, 2019
Unlucky Norwich u lot deserved more from that game
