Arsenal V Norwich: Preview, Team News And Betting Odds

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta needs a victory against Norwich this weekend to ease the pressure on him after a woeful start to the season.

The Gunners will be facing a Canaries team who have also lost all of their league matches so far but Daniel Farke’s side did show some fight against Leicester last time out, so they will be no pushovers.

In terms of team news, Arteta has been given a big boost after Ben White (virus), Thomas Partey (ankle), Nicolas Pepe (illness), Gabriel (knee) and Eddie Nketiah (ankle) all returned to training this week.


There are, however, still three other players sidelined with fitness problems. Mohamed Elneny (muscular) and Sead Kolasinac (knock) are doubts for Saturday while Granit Xhaka (virus) has been ruled out.

Norwich should have Christos Tzolis back available after a calf injury, but Bali Mumba (knee), Przemyslaw Placheta (virus) and Sam Byram (hamstring) are all out of contention.

The bookmakers have made Arsenal the favourites with Betway pricing at 8/15 for the win. A draw is 17/5 with Unibet while a victory for Norwich is currently 11/2 at William Hill.

Predicted Score – 1-0 to Arsenal
