Norwich vs Arsenal Match Preview
Current form of Norwich City
Norwich is not even a mid-table club as they are currently standing on 16th position with only 12 points after playing 13 matches in this Premier League season. In last eight matches, they have won only 1 match against Swansea City. Apart from that, they have defeated to Leicester City, Newcastle United, Manchester City, Everton and Chelsea.
The whole team is having some con-ordination issue. The attacking lineup is not so good. As of now, their forwards have scored only 4 goals (Jerome and Dieumerci Mbokani – 2 goals each). On the other hand, the cannot play attacking football for a long time. The another problem is their weak midfield, which is consisted with Robert Brady, Jonathan Howson, Wes Hoolahan etc. The eighteen years old goalkeeper, John Ruddy, has played all the matches in this season and played quite well.
Expected starting lineup of Norwich City
Ruddy; Wisdom, Bennett, Bassong, Olsson; Redmond, O’Neil, Mulumbu, Brady; Howson, Mbokani.
Current form of Arsenal
The Ozil-Sanchez combo has started working again and this is probably the nest news for Arsenal. After a long time, Arsene Wenger has used these two attacking players against Dinamo Zagreb. Although, they had 9 players out of the match for a long time, yet, now they have some of them and the result reflects it. In the last match of Premier League, Arsenal was defeated to West Brom for with 2-1 score line.
Even after having almost same starting lineup, they failed to win that match as Caorla missed a sure shot goal from penalty. On the other hand, Asteta score an own goal. However, the draught has been lifted up. In the last 6 EPL matches, they have won 4 matches, drawn 1 match against Tottenham Hotspur and lost to West Brom. The Copa America 2015 winning team member, Alexis Sanchez is playing great along with Ozil. In the last match, they have both played awesome. However, this is totally different from Champions League match. Arsene Wenger must have a different strategy to get 3 points.
Expected starting lineup of Arsenal
Cech; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Cazorla, Flamini; Campbell, Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud.
Norwich vs Arsenal strategy analysis and formation
Norwich city will start the match with the same starting lineup and with 4-4-1-1 formation. You can find O’Neil and Mbokani as forward. Except these, the midfield will be consisted with Brady, Mulumbu and some other players.
As there are no such injury updates, it seems Arsenal will continue with the same starting lineup with 4-2-3-1 formation as it was against Champions League match against Dinamo Zagreb. That means, the forward line will be handled by Giroud. Although, there is no guarantee but it seems Ramsey will be kept on the bench. However, Arsenal’s midfield is probably the strongest midfield. Anyway, apart from Sanchez and Ozil, you will find Campbell. On the other hand, Cazorla can be found in the starting lineup.
Prediction and Wrap Up
Although, this is an away match for Arsenal, yet, they have the advantage because they are having better squad than Norwich City. Considering all the facts, it seems this is a 2-0 in favor of Arsenal.
