Arsenal drop points once again and now lose ground on the leaders Manchester City. Arsenal took the lead through a goal by Mesut Ozil before being pegged back by Norwich. Norwich could have won the game if it wasn’t for an excellent save by Cech

Cech - 7 - Cech pulled off a wonderful save in the second half to get Arsenal a point and was his usual calm self.

Bellerin – 6 – Not a great performance by Bellerin who is having a poor run at the moment. His final ball was poor today.

Mertesacker – 7 – Defended well and was needed once Koscielny got injured.

Koscielny – N/A - Pulled up early with an injury

Monreal – 6 – Solid defensively but his final ball was poor all afternoon. Often got into good positions but wasted the final ball.

Flamini – 6 – Did okay but on another day may have conceded a penalty.

Cazorla – 6 – Tried to get Arsenal forward but struggled to find a killer pass.

Ramsey – 6 – A quiet afternoon on his return but should get better with more minutes.

Ozil – 7 – Got the Arsenal goal today and was involved in all the good things Arsenal did.

Sanchez – 7 – Played well and provided the assist. However, he pulled up with a hamstring injury which hopefully will not be as bad as it looked.

Giroud – 6 – Giroud was ineffective all afternoon and didn’t really have much to attack.

Subs

Gabriel – 6 – Could have done better for the Norwich goal but apart from that Gabriel dealt with most things comfortably.

Campbell – 6 – Didn’t really do much when he came on but tried to get the ball in when he could for Giroud.

Oxlade – Chamberlain – 6 - Looked lively when coming on after returning from injury. Maybe key now Sanchez has got injured.

After dropping points for the 2nd consecutive week Arsenal need to bounce back quickly. The biggest fear from the match is the injuries to Koscielny and Sanchez. Arsenal will be hoping these are small setbacks as at the moment these injuries are destroying the Arsenal side.

Usual clueless over passing game we should all be used too, at the moment I don't even enjoy watching us play.every game dozens upon dozens of pointless unnecessary square pass,s just to end up back to Cech who hoofs it upfield and it goes to the other side, no shots on target cos no one wants to have a go, just delegate responsibility to someone else, until a noisy tactically aware captain and coach are at the club we remain permanent bridesmaids,,

We need more strength on the bench. We spend the whole tournament with at lest 3 key players missing through injury. We should have at least 3 world class players for each position if we ever want to win the championship. There is an urgency to sign a strong Centre half, a world class defensive midfielder and a sharp and quick Centre forward in January. Otherwise we will end up 3rd or 4th once more.

Maybe this will encourage El Cheepo to spend some money on additional players and stop the bull*** line that there is no quality players out there!!!!! You fans out there can assist this happening really fast..... Stop going to home matches----- your owner cares about profit only

It seems that the boys are inloved with the 4th and 3rd places.So many opportunities to get in front of the table and they cant get pass small teams. This is bad...It looks that they struggle just to catch a place in cl, the title doesnt matter for them.I don't know why the hell i love this club, cause it brings me only dissapointments.Stup id heart!
