Arsenal’s caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg watched his side twice come from a goal down to draw 2-2 at Norwich.

The interim Gunners boss has limited time to stake his claim for the permanent head coach role following the dismissal of Unai Emery.

Arsenal’s winless run has stretched to eight, but the Swede remains one of the favourites to get the job full time despite not managing a senior side before.

Ljungberg recalled Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka to start in the Premier League. There was more fluidity going forward, but the defence remains fragile.

Teemu Pukki found himself in on goal to beat Leno with a 21st-minute deflection off Mustafi.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drew Arsenal level on his second penalty attempt after four Norwich players encroached his original effort which was saved by Tim Krul.

But Todd Cantwell re-established the host’s lead, with the midfielder slicing through the Gunners defence and placing an effort into the bottom corner on the stroke of half-time.

In the second half Aubameyang again drew Arsenal level, turning in a loose ball from a corner to ensure the Gunners gained a share of the points.

The result leaves Arsenal eighth in the Premier League, seven points off a place in the top four, while Norwich remain 19th, three points from safety.
