Top form Norwich looking forward to ‘special time’ against weakened Arsenal

Arsene Wenger is guaranteed to make wholesale changes to the Arsenal team that will face Norwich tomorrow evening at the Emirates, but with the Canaries in top form it may be more of a risk than doing it against foreign minnows in the Europa League.

Norwich are unbeaten in their last 9 matches in the Championship and have won their last 5 away games, so they are really looking forward to facing a weakened Arsenal side. Their German manager Daniel Farke says his side will play under no pressure and look to create a ‘special moment’ against the Gunners on their home turf.

He said: “There is no pressure on us because 19 times out of 20, Arsenal would go through to the next round.

“There is always that one time though – and that time is special. I like situations where people don’t expect you to create special moments.

“We’ve won our last five away games and that gives us confidence. It is a big task, but I’m concentrated on bringing the best result back to Norwich City.

“We are full of respect for Arsenal, but we want to beat them. That’s our topic and what we are trying to do – we are looking to create something special.”

“I like situations when everything seems against you but we will have a massive support and the fans can carry us.”

He sounds a little more confident than any of the opponents that Arsenal have faced in the Europa League, so our fringe players will have to be on their best form. Can they carry on their form after 3 wins in the Europa League? Of course they can! COYG!

    We should easily brush them aside. Walcott and Giroud will probably score. Maybe Wilshere can play a few minutes. ION Koeman has been fired by Everton after the 5-2 embarrassment …why don’t normal rules apply to Arsenal…

      Ive a bad feeling that if Jack starts the game he wont finish it unscathed.

    News – Olivier Giroud’s ‘scorpion kick’ goal against Crystal Palace in January received the Puskas award for the goal of the year at the Best FIFA football awards in London on Monday.
    Am happy about that. He’s an Arsenal player. Congratulations Giroud.

    I think we’ll need to choose a better more recognized defence. The others I would not have a problem with.

    Cech made a bit of a rickett v Eve, interestingly he was the only one who traveled to the midweek game three days earlier. If the game was still in the balance I doubt it would have happened.
