Norwich vs Arsenal team news
Arteta will decide whether to bring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back from the cold. Aubameyang has missed the last four games since being dropped and stripped of the Arsenal captain post following a disciplinary offense.
Arsenal have made a lot of changes for their Carabao Cup win over Sunderland and they are likely to return to the squad that beat Leeds ahead of that trip to Norwich.
A big debate for Arteta is what to do with Emile Smith Rowe as the attacking midfielder now faces competition for his spot off.
Gabriel Martinelli has impressed in the last few games and is hoping to keep his place on the left side.
There are also concerns over Takehiro Tomiyasu, who suffered a muscle problem at Leeds and rested for the game against Sunderland.
For Norwich, Christoph Zimmermann (foot), Andrew Omobamidele (back) and Grant Hanley (shoulder) should be missing for the Canaries, but Milot Rashica and Mathias Normann (groin) could return.
Lukas Rupp, Joshua Sargent and Pierre Lees-Melou have all missed recent action due to Covid-19, with manager Smith yet to confirm whether they are available.
Prediction Norwich vs Arsenal
Arsenal looked too hot to deal with against Leeds and another day away for a struggling side should yield a similar result.
History and results of face to face (h2h)
