NCFC LIVE: Controversial goal succumbs City to defeat at Arsenal

The Norwich players look dejected at the end of the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, Lo

Norwich City suffered another defeat despite a performance that displayed plenty of promise.

Norwich City left the Emirates feeling hard done by after Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's strike saw Arsenal record their first victory of the Premier League season. 

City players felt the striker was offside as he tapped the ball into the net, but VAR adjudged that the final touch came off Tim Krul before landing kindly for the Gabonese international. 

The Canaries dominated portions of the game but lacked a cutting edge that allowed to convert spells of possession into goalscoring chances. 

Farke's starting line-up caught most people off guard after he elected to hand starts to Andrew Omobamidele, Lukas Rupp, Kieran Dowell and Christos Tzolis. That looked an inspired selection before Aubameyang struck and condemned City to their fourth straight defeat. 

Norwich now sit bottom of the Premier League and are the only club in the division who are yet to pick up a single point. They welcome Watford to Carrow Road next weekend in a fixture that already has a must win feeling around it.
