Effectively relegated, Norwich City enter their final game of the season against Arsenal knowing that their three-year spell in the Premier League is coming to an end.
When they failed to pull clear of the bottom three, a look at Norwich’s final four fixtures made it seem a tall order for them to stay up, and so it has proved. Bar the defeat at Manchester United, there has unquestionably been more of a fight about the Canaries since Neil Adams took over from Chris Hughton. Many believe that the change was made too late, but they are in a good position to bounce straight back next season.
Arsenal are now guaranteed of a place in the top four thanks to Everton suffering two straight defeats, so now they can set their sights firmly on the upcoming FA Cup final, where they have the chance to end the much talked about trophy drought. Manager Arsene Wenger believes that injuries have been the main contributing factor towards the collapse of the Gunners’ title challenge, meaning he will be left to reflect on what might have been.
Anthony Pilkington misses out for Norwich, who need a huge goal swing to stay up. Elliott Bennett could start, but Joseph Yobo is doubtful.
Jack Wilshere could make his comeback from the bench for an Arsenal side that is without Theo Walcott, Serge Gnabry and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
