The Gunners overcame Norwich City 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium Sunday to earn their first Premier League victory of the season.
The hosts won courtesy to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half strike, and the pressure on Mikel Arteta was relieved thanks to the much-needed three points.
Arsenal must now strive to regain some momentum following their close victory over the Canaries.
Gary Neville, a former Manchester United defender, has claimed that Arsenal fans ‘drain’ him after he predicted the Gunners would finish outside the top six.
“Arsenal fans will certainly come up with some stat now,” he told LAD Bible. They already believe I despise them! They deplete my energy! Start winning now… I’d like to start praising them all over again!”
After three defeats and a goalless start to the season, the Gunners went into the match at the Emirates Stadium in desperate need of a win.
That run came to an end on Saturday when Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang’s second-half strike was enough to secure a narrow victory over the Canaries at the Emirates Stadium.
While Arsenal’s performance was not very impressive, the outcome was unquestionably the most crucial factor on the day.
