However, the Gunners also made many of the same mistakes that cost Unai Emery his job last week.AdvertisementAdvertisementAubameyang stole the headlines with his second brace of the season to cancel out Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell’s strikes, but Leno was arguably Arsenal’s standout performer with a string of top saves to keep his side in the game.ADVERTISEMENT Ljungberg gives presser after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with NorwichTo view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video Play VideoLoaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%PlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 5:06FullscreenLjungberg gives presser after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Norwichhttps://metro.co.uk/video/ljungberg-gives-presser-arsenals-2-2-draw-norwich-2060662/This is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
