Arsenal v Norwich City: Can Wenger avoid getting in a flap against the Canaries?


Bookmark and Share

With Chelsea facing Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday and Spurs having a week off, Arsenal have the perfect opportunity of moving up to third in the Premier League, but first they must get past Chris Hughton's Canaries.

The boys from Carrow Road have been a real thorn in the side of Arsenal in recent games. They beat the Gunners in Norfolk earlier this season and took home a share of the spoils last year following a six-goal thriller at the Emirates. 

However, Norwich are just four points off the drop zone and still have to play the likes of Stoke City. They've managed just one win on their travels this season, have won only one of their past 10 outings and conceded a whopping 32 goals away from home in the league. It doesn't look good for the visitors.

Arsenal are the team of the moment. They have dropped just four points from a possible 27 and have Chelsea and Spurs firmly in their sights. A third place finish would be a remarkable achievement for the Gunners given all the negativity surrounding them in the media this year.

The Gunners haven't lost at home to Norwich since the opening day of the Premier League era in 1992.

This looks like a home win all day long.
