A lone strike from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was all the North London club needed to down the Canaries at the Emirates and seal the three points.

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old striker has not featured for the Gunners since their 2-0 home defeat to Chelsea in their second league game.

What Folarin Balogun's brother said

Balogun's brother has now opened up on Arsenal woes after claiming Arteta’s system ‘just doesn’t really work’ currently. Royce Balogun was quoted by SunSport speaking with @whatthefootie:

“You can’t blame just the player, it’s the system. If you look at that striker problem in terms of chances created, it’s not just Folarin.

Arsenal travel to Turf Moor to battle Burnley for their second English top-flight victory on Saturday, September 18.

How Arsenal claim their first EPL win earlier reported that Mikel Arteta welcomed the return of three players which played a huge role in their first win of the Premier League season.

The Gunners defeated Norwich City 1-0 over the weekend to end their three games losing streak so far this campaign.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal that separated the two teams as Gabriel Magalhaes, Thomas Partey, and Ben White played a part in the game after their return from injury.
