If Arsene Wenger was hoping that Arsenal had used up all our bad luck in the away defeat last week then he was sorely mistaken. The only positive for the Gunners from this week-s away day at a lower Premier League club is that we managed to come back to north London with a point and we had some poor finishing from the home side and a top class save from Petr Cech to thank for that.
It had all looked so good in the first half, despite Arsenal losing a key player in Laurent Koscielny at about the same time as Coquelin went off last weekend. The Gunners dominated anyway and took a well deserved lead through Mesut Ozil’s slick finish after Alexis Sanchez had pounced onm a poor goal kick and played him through.
But just like last week we were pegged back before the break and the goal came out of the blue and involved a mistake by the player that had come on as well, with Gabriel getting on the wrong side of Grabban. It could easily have been even more similar as Norwich spurned a great chance on the stroke of halftime.
THe second half was a real battle and our bad luck with injuries struck again and it was the one we all feared, with Alexis limping off holding his hamstring. Fair play to Norwich who gained confidence from their goal and played really well after the restart.
Another setback for the Gunners and from two games we should have won we have taken just one point. Title chances slipping away? Depending on the severity of the latest injury blows they could be gone already.
