Norwich v Arsenal predicted lineups and match preview

Norwich Carrow Road 2

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to West Brom, while Norwich will be hoping for a morale boosting home victory.

To be played on Sunday 29th November 2015 at 16:15. Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich

Odds: Norwich 5/1, Draw 7/2, Arsenal 11/18

The cliche for any newly promoted side is that their home is going to be key to their chances of survival,. A scalp here for Norwich City would be a huge confidence boost, the trouble for the Canaries is that they're facing an Arsenal side determined to bounce back from a Premier League defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Alex Neil's side currently sit four points above the relegation zone and barring one defeat at Newcastle, they have never been battered in a game, they mostly seem competitive so it would be a little foolish to rule them out of getting a result completely. 

Arsenal could end the weekend top of the table if results go their way, as they sit two points behind surprise league leaders Leicester City - who play second-placed Manchester United this weekend.

They will be looking to get back to winning ways on the domestic front following a draw against Tottenham prior to their defeat at West Brom. From being in a position where they could be sitting top of the pile, they currently sit fourth and could do with getting a win to keep up with the pace. Their reassuring victory over Dinamo Zagreb in midweek to keep their Champions League hopes alive was welcome and they'll hope to start a run.

“We will be regarded as one of the smaller teams in the league, but even when so-called bigger teams come to our place, they have been happy to sit behind the ball, soak up pressure and hit you on the counter attack and that sort of surprised me.”
