Arsenal will try to maintain its winning momentum against Norwich.
After two catastrophic defeats at the start of the restart, the Gunners won twice on the road against Southampton and Sheffield United (in the FA Cup). They will be desperately looking for this momentum to return to London with them, and given that their opponents are at the bottom of the league, Norwich will be confident of securing all three points.
Norwich come into this game after four consecutive losses, including the FA Cup knockout against Manchester United this weekend. The Canaries play wonderful football in the attack, but cannot hold it together behind. They have scored a staggering 56 goals so far this season and are six points ahead of Aston Villa in 19th place, but with a game in hand. This is this game and you have to win it.

Former Arsenal and Norwich lineups:
- Arsenal (against Sheffield United): Martinez; Mustafi, David Luiz, Kolasinac; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Willock, Tierney; Pépé, Saka; Lacazette.
- Norwich (against Manchester United): Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Klose, Lewis; Tettey, Rupp, McLean; Buendia, Cantwell; Pukki.
Arsenal have to miss out on Bernd Leno, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares, Calum Chambers and Lucas Torreira as long-term injuries and may sweat at the fitness of David Luiz, who left the FA Cup draw in Sheffield with an injury. Norwich has no major injuries, but gets tired after a Manchester United extension.
To see players:
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has looked its best for miles since the Premier League restart. The Gabonese international last scored a Premier League goal in February, but his total of 17 in the league is still as high as Norwich's top two scorers combined. This home game gives Aubameyang an ideal chance to put his foot down and get under the goals again. He scored twice when the teams drew at Carrow Road earlier in the season and will enjoy a match against this permeable Norwich defense.
Norwich: Norwich is a lively team who all work tirelessly hard, but nobody embodies their impact better than Todd Cantwell. The young midfielder is so often the blow in the last third for the Canaries; Only Teemu Pukki has shots, shots on goal, touches in the opposing penalty area and goals above Cantwell – and nobody has won more fouls than Cantwell (58) for Norwich. An all-action presence that loves the big occasion. Cantwell have met Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and even Arsenal this season. He enjoys pinching the top and will want to punish Arsenal in the Emirates.
