Aubameyang shush celebration: Arsenal forward scores before asking Tim Krul to pipe down after VAR Penalty controversy during their premier league clash.
Arsenal’s winless run in the Premier League continues after playing out yet another draw against Norwich City at Carrow Road. Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell scored in the first half to register both of their goals.
Centre-backs David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi were caught out by Pukki, who’s shot deflected off the German and into the net after 21 minutes. The Canaries scored another before half-time, when Cantwell curled a brilliant finish past Bernd Leno after the Gunners were hit on the break.
However, Arsenal captain Aubameyang’s heroics helped the Gunners level the scores. The Gabonese forward scored twice in both halves to help Arsenal salvage a point. The first of the two however, involved the VAR as Aubameyang shushed Tim Krul after placing the penalty behind the nets.

The Gunners were awarded a penalty after Christoph Zimmerman handled the ball inside the box, Norwich goal keeper, Tim Krul then proceeded to play mind games with the Arsenal skipper. The Dutchman appeared to stall Aubameyang to put him off his game and even succeeded as he successfully made the safe.
However, the penalty was retaken for encroachment through a controversial call from VAR. Aubameyang made no mistake this time and sent the ball in to score Arsenal’s first goal of the night. To celebrate he immediately taunted the keeper with his finger on his lips as if he were asking him to pipe it down.

Life without Emery has not resulted in a change of fortunes so far. However, the shift in the attitude was visible from the players. Under Freddy Ljunberg, the boys played a much more positive brand of football. However, if Arsenal are to win consistently, they will have to sort their defensive issues quickly.
