On Sunday, Arsenal suffered another disheartening draw away at Norwich which would have even been a loss for Arsenal if VAR(video assistant referee) hadn’t stepped in to re-award another penalty to Arsenal after the first one was caught by the keeper.
Two goals from Gabonese striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rescued a point for Arsenal at Carrow Road after Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell edged Norwich ahead twice and the result followed the dismissal of Unai Emery on Friday, with interim manager Ljungberg taking charge.
Despite this being Arsenal’s worst start to a league campaign since 1975, Ljungberg still believes Arsenal can make the top four.
Ljungberg said to reporters after the game: ‘100 per cent [Arsenal can still make the top four]. Teams drop points here and there, they drop points, we drop points, Spurs, it’s a bit of a crazy league and of course I hope and think that Arsenal can get back to the top four.’
‘I hope the club – I’ve been there for a long time – know what I can do and what I can’t do. I’m looking forward day by day and being very honoured that they’ve trusted me to do this, trying to help the players as much as I can and that’s how I see it.’
Arsenal have a long list of potential candidates to become permanent managers of the club including Brendan Rodgers, Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira, Max Allegri, Nuno Espirito Santo, Mauricio Pochettino and Carlo Ancelotti.
