Norwich dent Arsenal's Euro bid with 3-3 draw
Arsenal's bid for a top-four finish suffered a major setback as Steve Morison's late goal earned Norwich a deserved point in a six-goal thriller at the Emirates on Saturday.
Without a victory in their last three matches, Arsenal came flying out of the blocks and took the lead inside the opening 70 seconds, thanks to birthday boy Yossi Benayoun.
With Norwich then going ahead through Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt, a double from Robin van Persie seemed to have won it for the hosts before substitute Morison stunned the home crowd with a smart finish five minutes from time.
Van Persie had a golden opportunity to restore Arsenal’s lead at the other end but fired over, while Holt was unlucky to be flagged offside from Simeon Jackson’s clever through ball.
