Two stunning second-half saves from debut-making goalkeeper Will Britt gave Neil Adams’ young Canaries a point at Colney as they began the second half of their FA Premier Academy League campaign.
It was the second visit of the season by Arsenal, who were beaten 4-0 in November.
In the final 20 minutes, Britt pulled off a stunning one-handed save to keep out Austin Lipman’s powerful header and moments later made an identical save.
City created the first opening when captain Cameron McGeehan fired a free-kick just wide, while Arsenal’s best effort of the first half came when Lipman raced clear but blasted his shot over the bar. Joe Peacock went close for City from the edge of the box, as did Henry Randell after good work by Harvey Hodd.
After the break, Dominic St Louis went close before seeing another effort saved by Gunners ’keeper Deyan Iliev. Iliev then had to be alert to turn a McGeehan free-kick over the bar, and defender Kein Lokko stabbed a shot just wide.
