It saw interim manager Freddie Ljunberg begin his spell with a point, but extended Arsenal's winless run to eight which was a factor in the decision to sack Unai Emery on Friday - the morning after a 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Leno told the official club website: 'At the end it was confusing because in the first half we played exactly how we wanted but conceded two goals in transition. In the second half, we lost control of the game and we were lucky to draw.

'It's always strange and sad when a manager loses his job. I think Emery did a very good job for one-and-a-half years, but the club decided to change the manager and something in the team.

'We just have to look forward and we saw the team was different (against Norwich).'
