According to Opta, following Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Norwich City this afternoon, the Gunners are now on their longest winless streak in the Premier League since December 1994.
Arsenal’s dismal form over the last couple of months saw Unai Emery relieved of his duties on Friday morning, club legend Freddie Ljungberg has taken caretaker charge of the Gunners.
Ljungberg’s appointment clearly struggled to inspire a solid performance from the north London outfit today. Arsenal’s lacklustre defending was once again the team’s downfall.

Despite being the only player in a threatening attacking position, the defence stood off the talisman and were made to pay.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang actually bagged a brace for the Emirates outfit, but once again the Gabonese star’s efforts weren’t enough to seal a win for the Gunners.
Arsenal should focus the majority of their attention on attempting to steady the team’s back line, the side will struggle to get anywhere this season if they can’t solve their glaring defensive issues.
