Arsenal v Norwich Match Build-up & Score Prediction

Arsenal will be confident ahead of their visit from Norwich City tonight, and will be keen to build on their recent winning form.

Our side come into the match on the back of two consecutive wins, against fellow European chasers Sheffield United and a resilient Southampton side, who boast one of the most in-form strikers in the division.

Whilst we have secured six points in the past week, the performances have been far from routine, and Mikel Arteta will be aware that he can’t allow his players to lose focus tonight.

The Canaries have lost their last three league matches without scoring a single goal, but did impress in the FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United at the weekend, where they took the Red Devils to extra-time, and were close to taking the match to penalties despite getting a red card late into the initial 90 minutes.

The visitors almost appear unfazed by the prospect of demotion, and in fact refused to invest heavily in their squad in the previous windows, and whilst having played some very nice football, their lack of investment has been a telling factor.

Norwich showed fight in the cup in midweek, and while now may be too late to show the passion needed to survive from the drop, I can’t help but think that their 120 minutes on Saturday will have left them tired and destined for defeat.

While Arsenal are yet to look like they are getting close to top form, we should have way too much for this tired and morale-lacking side.

I’m going to go for a comfortable 4-0 win at the Emirates tonight, which should see us climb up to seventh in the table, whilst giving us a confidence boost as we look to push on for the European places.

Will Arsenal put Norwich to the sword this evening and show a statement of intent to our rivals? What do you think the score will be?

    Patrick, cup wins do not get three points so we have not got six points this past week but just three and are now in the FA cup semis. Thought I’d tell you to hopefully prevent any others from needing to do so. Doesn’t help your credibility with such a basic error though.

    I highly doubt your scoreline..though its your opinion.. Every team seems to want to do us over and get the better of us.. Sheffield also hadn’t scored prior to playing us, yet they managed to score against us and almost came out of the match with something.
    Our play looks boring and feels depressing with constant sideways and backward passing. Nobody seems to be able or want to take on their opponents.
    If only we could be as half decent as Man utd was yesterday against the same Brighton that beat us.

    OT.. Saliba’s loan won’t be extended for footballing and financial reasons.
    Hope he’s good and clicks for next season.

    My predicted score for tonight 2-1 to us.

    4-0?? Would love it, but can’t see it!
    I’m feeling a little more optimistic as we’re at home… I’ll be amazed if we don’t win (no disrespect, Canaries) but can I see us keeping a clean sheet?? Nah….. 🤪

      The giddy heights of 7th in the table 😆

    Point of clarification please!! Over the years three slots for europa league qualification is usually designated in the Premier league. The fifth positioned team as well as the FA winners(if the winner is outside top 4) with the other slot based on the EFL winners( if the winner is a team not in the top 4 also). Okay..there some circumstances which contradict allowing the subsiquent highest ranked teams to qualify. Since the EFL winners were City and presumably we lose the FA cup to Chelsea (as Chelsea finish in the top4) as well as the fact that City’s ban is still on and we also finish 7th, is there any possibility that Arsenal might play in the Europa league next season? And how will the circumstances be if City’s ban is removed? By the way am not certainly sure of the Europa league qualifying via the cups. Any detailed gooners please shed the light. Clarification is needed🤝
