Confirmed: Norwich City and Arsenal line-ups

Norwich Carrow Road 2

Here is how Norwich City and Arsenal will line up this weekend:

Norwich City welcome Arsenal to Carrow Road with Arsene Wenger’s side knowing they can go top of the table if they fill their boots against the Canaries.

That could be a possibility given Alexis Sanchez’s recent upturn in form against Dinamo Zagreb but Norwich’s back-line will be hoping to stand firm and keep the Gunners’ formidable attacking talent at bay.

Arsenal are currently fourth in the table with 26 points from their 13 matches while Norwich are 16th, just two points above the relegation zone.

They narrowly lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last time out and fought hard in a bid to take a point home with them, and it will be interesting to see how they respond against Arsenal.

Arsenal have won seven of the last nine league meetings with today’s opponents, with Norwich beating them 1-0 on this ground back in 2012.

A repeat of that result is not impossible but the hosts will have to be at their very best to achieve it.
