Arsenal vs Norwich Match Preview

freesupertips.com, 30 June 2020, 17:18

Arsenal vs Norwich City predictions for Wednesday's Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal are favourites to take maximum points against bottom club Norwich. Read on for all our free Premier League predictions and betting tips.

Reason For Arsenal vs Norwich Predictions

Arsenal won three of their last five Premier League home games to nil.

Norwich scored just six times in 15 Premier League away matches this season

Norwich failed to register in five of their last six away fixtures.

Arsenal are averaging just 1.58 goals per game under Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal bounce back

Having been written off and lampooned in equal measure following successive away defeats at Manchester City and Brighton after the re-start, Arsenal responded in admirable fashion this week with back-to-back victories over Southampton and Sheffield United in the Premier League and FA Cup.

The Gunners made the most of the rub of the green to move up to 9th spot win 2-0 at the Saints on Thursday last week, though their 2-1 cup quarter final triumph at Bramall Lane on Sunday hinted at a new-found determination in their ranks under Mikel Arteta.

Many had expected Arsenal to crumble against a robust Blades outfit, and when David McGoldrick's 87 th minute strike cancelled out Pepe's first half spot kick opener, Gunners fans were bracing themselves for another embarrassing collapse.

However, Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos hit a dramatic injury time winner to set up a semi final clash with Manchester City next month, and the 23-year-old's late match-decider is certain to have injected Arsenal's squad with some fresh confidence ahead of their first fixture at the Emirates Stadium since March 7.

Farke's rotation backfires?

Norwich City, meanwhile, were forced to endure another miserable week when their losing streak since the restart was extended from one to two, and then to three games inside the space of three days.

The Canaries coach chose to rest a number of his key players for bottom club Norwich's Premier League home game against Everton last week, though Farke's decision to keep his stars in reserve for the club's FA Cup quarter final against Man Utd ultimately backfired.

Having lost 1-0 to the Toffees with a weakened XI, a full-strength Norwich were subsequently turned over 2-1 by Man Utd after extra time at Carrow Road. And while City's performance was certainly spirited, the manner of their late defeat would have been a real heart-breaker.

With the rigours of 120 minutes of knockout football also likely to have a major energy-sapping effect, the Canaries are almost certain to be jaded and low on self-belief for their tip to play Arsenal on Wednesday.

Gunners to maintain momentum

In start contrast to their opponents, Arsenal should be armed with plenty of confidence following their brace of momentum building wins this week, and having won four of their last five Premier League fixtures at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners are favourites to pick up maximum points again on Wednesday.

While Arsenal's haphazard defensive displays on the road have come in for plenty of deserved criticism, the Londoners had been making real strides in the department at home under Mikel Arteta's watch.

Arsenal kept three clean sheets in five top tier matches at the Emirates Stadium in the lead up to football's postponement in March, and against a Norwich team that have scored fewer away goals than any other team in the division this season, the Gunners look well priced to pick up where they left off this week.

Incredibly, the Canaries plundered just six goals in 15 Premier League away fixtures since August, and failed to register in five of their most recent six matches as the visiting team.

With their FA Cup dreams in tatters and their top flight status hanging by a thread, we don't expect Norwich to offer much resistance on Wednesday, and with the aforementioned factors considered, the Arsenal win to nil market looks excellent value.

The Gunners however, have been modest goal-getters for the most part under Arteta, averaging just 1.58 goals per 90 minutes since the Spaniard's appointment before the turn of the year.

Having notched exactly two goals in three of their last four victories, and scored twice against Norwich in the reverse fixture between the clubs in December, we're backing the Gunners to hit two more in our 2-0 correct score prediction.

Key Battle - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang vs Ben Godfrey

The usually prolific Gabonese international attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been uncharacteristically quiet for Arsenal since the restart.

Aubameyang is still searching for his first goal since the resumption of play, and the 31-year-old will be desperate to end his dry spell against Norwich City this week.

Talented young Canaries defender Ben Godfrey, who saw Auba hit the net twice when Norwich last faced Arsenal, will be keen to add to his reputation by performing well against the seasoned campaigner on Wednesday.

Godfrey shone for City in their cup defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, and has the defensive skillset to make his presence felt at the Emirates Stadium this week.

Arsenal vs Norwich City team news

Mikel Areta has a number of injury problems to contend with ahead of Wednesday's game. Bernd Leno could be joined on the sidelines by David Luiz after the Brazilian came off against Sheffield United on Sunday.

Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli are all confirmed absentees, while Mesut Ozil, Lucas Torreira and Cedric Soares are all doubtful.

Up front, youngster Eddie Nketiah will go head-to-head with the more experience Alexandre Lacazette for a starting berth.

Arsenal predicted line-up: Martinez - Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney - Xhaka, Willock, Ceballos - Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Norwich will be without the services of Grant Hanley, Sam Byram and Christoph Zimmermann on Wednesday evening.

Tim Klose is suspended following his sending off against Manchester United, though Marco Stiepermann is in line to start following his return to fitness.

Norwich City predicted line-up: Krul - Aarons, Godfrey, Tettey, Lewis - Trybull, McLean - Buendia, Cantwell, Hernandez - Pukki
