Norwich vs Arsenal: Preview and betting tip

Arsenal travel down to Carrow Road brimming with confidence after their recent spell of nine wins in 11 games in all competitions. Norwich City are their opponents on this Saturday lunchtime.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger faces a defensive crisis with first choice right back Bacary Sagna and backup Carl Jenkinson out with injuries. Johann Djourou or Laurent Koscielny are expected to sit in for Wenger, who welcomes the return of midfielder Abou Diaby after injury. Arsenal’s confidence will still be high after their 3-0 win over West Brom before the international break.

Norwich boss Paul Lambert has been delighted with the way his side have played since their return to the Premier League. The Canaries suffered a difficult loss against Aston Villa in their last outing, but will be ready for the difficult challenge of the in-form Gunners. Railway Children, a national charity that supports vulnerable young people on Britain’s streets, will sponsor the Canaries on Saturday and should give Norwich the pride to defeat the Gunners.

Arsenal’s hot form should make them unstoppable against the Canaries and they should win in the same manner as they did back in August 2004, the last time Arsenal faced Norwich in the Premier League.
