Arsenal v Norwich City Confirmed Team News & Predicted Line-up

Arsenal have a number of players missing in action ahead of their first home game since the restart.

Norwich City are set to take on our side in tonight’s early evening kick-off at 6PM BST, which will be our side’s first match at the Emirates after four trips on the road.

Our team will go into the match without Bernd Leno, Pablo Mari(ankle), Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli, while we also have three players who are doubts.

Lucas Torreira(ankle), Mesut Ozil(back) and David Luiz(knee) may also miss out on tonight’s match-up, but we are expected to have Sokratis and Cedric Soares both available, although after such a time out I’m uncertain whether the latter will get the nod to start his first match.

Predicted XI:

Martinez
Bellerin Holding Mustafi Kolasinac
Willock Xhaka Saka
Pepe Nketiah Aubameyang

I expect Reiss Nelson and Maitland-Niles to both feature at some point today, while Soares should also be hopeful of some minutes.

This team should have more than enough in it to come away with a comfortable victory today, although Arteta may we weary of making too many changes. While we will be short-favourites to secure victory, our side is far from firing on all cylinders of late, and the manager will be worried about getting complacent despite the expected result.

Will Soares or Sokratis get thrown into the first team in order to give Bellerin or Mustafi a rest? Will Arteta take a risk and rest more key players against Norwich City tonight?

    Saka, my congratulations! But know there is no great beside God. Therefore, God is the great but not He’s great. There is no any the great save, God Himself who is the great.

    Admini, for our first PL match against Norwich City at the Ems tonight after the lifting of the Covid-19 lock-down. I think Mikel Arteta the Gunners head coach and the Arsenal team he’ll name for the match should not be complacent to take collecting all the 3 points at stake in the match for granted. For, Norwich who are battling against relegation could spring a surprise in the match to come away with a draw game which will be like a defeat to us as us are still nursing the unlikely chance of securing a CL spot next season.

    Therefore, for the Gunners to stand a good chance of collecting all points in the match, Arteta MUST field the fittest (mentally and physically), inform Gunners starting XI at his disposal for the match who have enduring match playing stamina for 90 minutes plus and great sense of correct positioning couple with creating chances take them and bury them. But he shouldn’t rely on playing big names who may not be suitable to start the match or even come-on for it.
