Arsenal hit back to draw at Norwich in Freddie Ljungberg’s first game in charge

01 December 2019 04:09
Freddie Ljungberg smiled as he took his seat in the dugout and, after vacating it, might have been excused a roll of the eyes. Arsenal responded to their new interim head coach’s presence, equalising twice through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and, at least for a time, showing a greater appetite to play on the front foot than in the latter days of Unai Emery’s reign. But the major takeaway for Ljungberg will be that he has a huge job on his hands to turn things around. Norwich, who scored through Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell, would have won the game had it not been for some brilliant goalkeeping from Bernd Leno in the last half-hour and were aggrieved at the twice-taken penalty that brought Arsenal’s first goal. By the end Arsenal were largely clinging on and the sense is that, much more than a new manager, they will need better players in order to improve significantly.
