Norwich City v Arsenal Match Preview

Norwich got off to a very bright start to their return to the premiership after losing just two of their opening seven matches but it has since gone downhill for the Canaries as they have now lost five of their last six league matches.

They are currently three points clear off the relegation zone but if they carry on their current form, it won’t be long before they drop into it and the reality of relegation kicks in. Norwich have a very tough fixture list heading into the new year with Watford away next and then Everton, Man United and Tottenham after that.

Arsenal have been strong in the league so far and if it wasn’t for an unexpected defeat last time out against West Brom, they would have been top of the table with 29 points. They bounced back from that defeat with a comfortable win mid-week over Dinamo Zagreb and they will be looking to win this match and pick up some momentum heading into what is always a crucial part of the season, the Christmas period.

Mesut Ozil has been in fine form and has recently broke the premiership record for assists in consecutive games, he and Alexis Sanchez were phenomenal in the week and they will both be hoping to continue that into this match with Sanchez hoping he can start getting back on the score-sheet in the league.

A win for Arsenal here will see them move up at least one place in the league as Manchester United and Leicester face each other and it could also prove to be an opportunity to overtake City if they fail to win at home to Southampton.

Norwich City Latest Team News:

Norwich will be without Jarvis and Tettey through injury but otherwise they have a full squad available going into this match.

Arsenal Latest Team News:

Arsenal have a huge ongoing injury list with Welbeck, Wilshere, Rosicky, Arteta, Coquelin, Walcott all unavailable after Coquelin and Arteta both picked up injuries last week. A positive for Arsenal on the injury front is that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to return for this match which will give Arsene Wenger another option on the right-hand side of their attack along with Joel Campbell.

19/10/13 BPL Arsenal vs Norwich City 4 : 1
13/04/13 BPL Arsenal vs Norwich City 3 : 1
20/10/12 BPL Norwich City vs Arsenal 1 : 0
05/05/12 BPL Arsenal vs Norwich City 3 : 3

These two sides have faced off on 50 different occasions, Arsenal have came out the better team with 23 wins to Norwich’s 9.

And in the 25 meetings that have taken place in which Norwich have held the home advantage, they had brought it back significantly but Arsenal still edged it after beating Norwich in 8 of those 25 games whilst losing just 7.

Using head to head statistics alone it would suggest that Arsenal have the better chance of claiming all three points here.

Norwich City Recent Form

07/11/15 BPL Norwich City vs Swansea 1 : 0

27/10/15 CAP Everton vs Norwich City 1 : 1 (4 : 3 Pens)
24/10/15 BPL Norwich City vs West Brom 0 : 1

Norwich are in very poor form heading into this match with four losses in their last five but they have won their last home match in a 1-0 victory over Swansea which will give the team some sort of confidence in this tough match.

Arsenal Recent Form

24/11/15 CHA Arsenal vs Dinamo Zagreb 3 : 0
21/11/15 BPL West Brom vs Arsenal 2 : 1
08/11/15 BPL Arsenal vs Tottenham 1 : 1
04/11/15 CHA Bayern Munich vs Arsenal 5 : 1
31/10/15 BPL Swansea vs Arsenal 0 : 3

Arsenal aren’t in the best form with just two wins in their last five but after a strong performance in the week against Dinamo Zagreb, they will be looking to put the defeat to West Brom last weekend behind them with a solid win here.

Norwich City vs Arsenal Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that Arsenal are great value to win this match as I expect them to win it comfortably considering the form of Norwich at the moment and the fact Arsenal will want to bounce back from their defeat last week. Arsenal will have too much going forward for Norwich and they should be able to cope defensively considering Norwich have managed to score just four goals in their last five games.

And as for my saver I have decided to go for Alexis Sanchez to grab the first goal in this match because he seems to score his goals in bunches and as he has just started that streak with a couple against Dinamo Zagreb in the week, I am predicting that he will continue that in this match.
