Steve Morison felt that Arsenal considered the Canaries a pushover as they were held to a 3-3 draw, giving Newcastle and Tottenham hope of pipping the Gunners to third

Norwich star Steven Morison has accused Arsenal of arrogance after his side drew 3-3 with the Gunners.

Yossi Benayoun had given the north Londoners the lead before Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt scored to give the Norfolk club the lead.

Robin van Persie then scored a brace before the former Millwall frontman equalised.

“I think Arsenal thought we were going to be a pushover today,” he said.

“We came here with nothing to play for but you can see from the way we played how much it means to the lads.

“We have got fantastic team spirit and today we showed what we are all about. At the start of the season we had a target of 40 points and we have got there and then some.

“Paul [Lambert] deserves all the plaudits he gets.”
