Aubameyang's double earns Arsenal draw at Norwich

Arsenal flop Nicolas Pepe was consigned to the bench for Arsenal's 2-2 draw at Norwich on Sunday after failing to impress interim manager Freddie Ljungberg on the training pitch.

How will Arsenal fare at Carrow Road?

Morgan took aim at Mustafi by saying the German was doing his best to lose Arsenal the game and the TV presenter said he was "thrilled" to get a point in the end - which he feels highlights just how far we've fallen.

"I wanted to win the game so I am disappointed but I have also seen some positive things".

However, Ljungberg will have to seriously impress his bosses if he is to reach the top of the pecking order, with Massimiliano Allegri, Carlo Ancelotti, Patrick Vieira, Mikel Arteta, Nuno Espirito Santo, Rodgers and Howe remain linked.

It gives Ljungberg plenty to think about ahead of a home game against the Seagulls on Thursday night before an away trip to West Ham next week.

Joe Willock, Lacazette and Calum Chambers had already wasted opportunities by this point and it felt like a matter of time before Arsenal turned their superiority into reward, but it was the hosts who struck against the run of play.

Aubameyang made no mistake with his second effort.

Aubameyang fired in from close range following a corner to level again in the 57th minute but it was Norwich, eyeing a second successive league victory, who looked the more likely winners with Leno making several good saves.

Ljungberg's first halftime team talk saw the Gunners come out with renewed goal and they equalized after 57 minutes when Aubameyang curled home, following Ozil's corner, for his 10th league strike this season.

The striker missed his first effort but was allowed to retake as VAR spotted encroachment from Norwich players.

Bernd Leno produced two excellent saves from Kenny McLean and Pukki to keep Arsenal in the game and earn a draw.
