Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes and Ben White are all back and they might feature in the game. However, Granit Xhaka is out of the fixture as he is suspended for three games. Mohamed Elneny is out after sustaining an injury.

Norwich City team news, injuries and suspensions

Norwich City, similar to Arsenal have had a poor start to the new season. They too have lost their first three fixtures. The Canaries will be hoping to take at least a point from the fixture and cause an upset to the Gunners. If they can cause an upset at the Emirates, then it will be a huge positive for Norwich City.

Christos Tzolis will be out of the match due to a calf issue. Bali Mumba is sidelined after dislocating his knee just before the International break. However, Przemyslaw Placheta will also not take part in the game after contracting coronavirus.

Arsenal vs Norwich City Head to Head Record

The Gunners have a major advantage over Norwich City in terms of the head to head aspect. But in recent times, Norwich City have been successful in neutralising it. However, in the last five fixtures, Arsenal have only two wins while the remaining three matches were a draw.

Arsenal vs Norwich City predicted line-up

Arsenal: Leno, Maitland-Niles, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Pepe, Aubameyang.

Norwich City: Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; Gilmour, McLean, Lees-Melou, Cantwell, Pukki, Rashic.

Arsenal vs Norwich City: Players to watch out


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has failed to impress in the starting matches. However, he did score a hat trick in the Carabao Cup fixture against West Bromwich Albion. But it is his Premier League form that is more concerning. However, the Gabon international will be hoping to bring back his form and start scoring again. If Arsenal wants to succeed this season then Aubameyang’s form will be very crucial.

Norwich City:

Adam Idah will be a very key player for Norwich City in this fixture. Arsenal’s defence has been shaky this season and Idah can further exploit it to Norwich City’s advantage. His height is a serious threat for the Gunners. Arsenal have been majorly conceding from the set-piece and Idah will be wary of that weakness of Arsenal.

12th Man prediction

Given that some major Arsenal players are back with full fitness, Mikel Arteta’s team should not find it tough to beat Norwich City. The final score might be in Arsenal’s favour with a 2-0 win.
