arsenal vs norwich preview   Leave a comment


The international break is finally over as attention shifts to various domestic leagues as teams prepare to strengthen their positions on the league table.
In the Barclays premier league Arsenal who are on top of the league will be hosting Norwich city at the emirate.
Arsene wenger while addressing the audience at Arsenal AGM says our dream is to finally end the trophy drought which has endured for eight years.
Arsenal FC
Arsene Wenger could have Santi
Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Lukas
Podolski back in time to face norwich while Tomas
Rosicky withdrew from the Czech
Republic squad in midweek due to a
problem but will most likely be available. Mesut
Ozil was forced off in Germany’s game
against Sweden with a
knee injury and is a doubt but the injury is believed to be minor and not as to the extent of the level of fear.
Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Bacary Sagna
and Abou Diaby look the likeliest to miss out
due to injuries.
The exciting young duo of Jack
Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey look set
to start in midfield with Frenchman
Mathieu Flamini doing the mopping up.
Tomas Rosicky could be handed a
start if Ozil does not recover in time
for the clash and it will be interesting
to see if Wenger decides to hand the
returning Cazorla, Walcott and
Podolski a start.
Olivier Giroud will be leading the line
with Carl Jenkinson continuing at
right-back in place of Bacary Sagna.

Norwich City FC
Anthony Pilkington was withdrawn
from the Republic of Ireland squad
due to knock but should be available
for Chris Hughton on Saturday. Elliott
Bennett is the only other injury
concern for the Canaries.
Chris Hughton fielded a five-man
midfield against Chelsea and a similar
tactic may be adopted against Chelsea
as well. The trio of Alexander Tettey,
Leroy Fer and Jonny Howson could
lineup in midfield with Robert
Snodgrass and Anthony Pilkington
providing the support from the wings
to the lone striker.
Ricky van Wolfswinkel has not found
the net in more than eight hours of
Premier League football and could be
dropped in favour of new signing Gary
Hooper in attack. Russell Martin,
Sebastian Bassong, Michael Turner
and Martin Olsson look set to start in
defence in front of John Ruddy.

Looking forward to a sweet home win
