Norwich vs. Arsenal Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

Arsenal manager Unai Emery faces a huge game this weekend as he takes his team to Carrow Road to play Norwich City on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners are a club in crisis, and failure to beat the team who were bottom until last weekend would plunge them deeper into the mire.

Past Meetings

Arsenal have won five of their last six games against Norwich, with the other game finishing in a draw when the teams last met at Carrow Road. That was during the 2015/16 campaign which saw the Canaries relegated to the Championship, while the teams last played each other in October 2017 in the League Cup. Arsenal needed extra-time to secure a 2-1 victory that day.

Team News

Daniel Farke is set to be without at least five players when he takes his place in the home dugout this weekend. The Canaries boss may not have Timm Klose back this season, while Josip Drmic is out until the new year. Todd Cantwell, Grant Hanley and Jamal Lewis are the other three who miss out this weekend.

Emery meanwhile has a much cleaner bill of health as he bids to save his job over the coming weeks. Dani Ceballos is the only player who’s definitely out, with Sead Kolasinac, Rob Holding and Bukayo Saka all expected to be available for this trip to Norfolk.

Norwich vs. Arsenal Preview and Predictions

Arsenal come into this game without a win in any of their last six fixtures in all competitions. The pressure’s really cranking up on their manager, while the opposite’s true of their hosts this weekend. Farke and his players finally had something to celebrate after Norwich ended their seven-game winless run last time out, and in some style too.

Norwich were hugely impressive in their 2-0 victory away to Everton on Saturday, their first win since beating Manchester City more than two months ago. The Canaries had lost seven of their eight matches since their shock victory over the champions, a run that saw them hit rock bottom after a promising start to the season.

City are up to 18th after the weekend, and they are 4.00 to consolidate on that victory by making it two in a row here. The home fans will certainly fancy their chances against an Arsenal side that seems to be getting worse. Vulnerable in defence and with their philosophy of playing out from the back continuing to land them in trouble, the Gunners haven’t won any of their last five away games in the Premier League.

Attack will surely be the best form of defence for the visitors here, and the north London outfit are 1.86 to take the three points back down to the capital with them. Considering their poor form though, and an extra game against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday, it wouldn’t be a massive surprise if Arsenal drop more points this weekend. With that in mind, the draw on Sunday is priced at 4.00.

Recommended Bets

1-1 draw at 8.25

Norwich should be full of confidence after a much improved performance at the weekend, while Arsenal’s current form, particularly on the road, leaves a lot to be desired. A 1-1 draw would mirror the scoreline the last time the teams met at Carrow Road.

Norwich to win either half at 2.15

Even if Norwich don’t take anything from this game, it’s not a major stretch to see them at least winning one of the two halves on Sunday.
