THE PREDICTION

Norwich are looking increasingly resigned to relegation now and after they rested some players to prioritise their FA Cup quarter-final clash with Man Utd on Saturday only to lose at the very end of extra-time, and that may have dented their confidence even further. They were forced to play with 10 men for half an hour which will not help them here also as Klose is suspended which means they only have one recognised central defender available for this match. That does not bode well against an Arsenal side that will be motivated to win even if Mikel Arteta’s men are not in the best of form themselves. The Gunners need to win to catapult them closer to the European places and should have enough quality at home to ease past this vulnerable Norwich side.
