‘Imagine being gutted that we didn’t beat Arsenal!’ - City fans positive after entertaining draw with Arsenal
PUBLISHED: 20:02 01 December 2019
Norwich City supporters are left wondering about what might have been following the Canaries hard-fought draw with Arsenal at Carrow Road.
City took the lead twice but were unable to see out victory against the Gunners, who were re-energised after the dismissal of Unai Emery last week.
Teemu Pukki ended his eight-game run without a goal as his deflected effort put the Canaries in the lead in the 22nd minute. The Finn's converted effort arrived through a decisive City counter-attack after some fine work from Kenny McLean.
VAR took centre stage after awarding Arsenal a penalty after adjudging Christoph Zimmermann handled in the area. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed the initial effort but VAR ordered it be retaken after encroachment from City's Max Aarons.
Aubameyang converted the second effort but City restored their lead prior to half-time as Cantwell confidently slotted home after another Onel Hernandez burst forward.
Arsenal's captain was left unmarked to lash home an equaliser in the second half to ensure a share of the spoils for Freddie Ljungberg in his first game as Arsenal's interim head coach.
