Arsenal have enjoyed a couple of confidence-boosting away wins and can complete a hat-trick of victories when hosting Premier League basement dwellers Norwich.
The Canaries are coming off three straight defeats and chief attacking threat Teemu Pukki has looked out of sorts since the restart.
Punters can get 27/20 for a home win to nil at Emirates Stadium and that is our initial Arsenal vs Norwich prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal suffered some defensive woes when beaten 3-0 at Manchester City and 2-1 at Brighton, but have bounced back well.
A 2-0 triumph at Southampton kept the Gunners in the hunt to qualify for next season’s Europa League via their Premier League position.
Sunday’s 2-1 victory at Sheffield United then put them in the FA Cup semi-finals to offer an alternative route into Europe.
Mikel Arteta commented: “It is a great opportunity to try and win a title and play in Europe.
“We still have to improve in many areas, but every win gives you some credit and encouragement. Hopefully, we can now have some momentum.
“The attitude and commitment of every single player was spot on and the players did exactly what they were asked to do.
“I think every win improves the spirit and happiness of the team.”
Consistency is the key to Arsenal getting back up to where they belong and Arteta will be keen to grind out a clinical victory here.
That may lead to a low-scoring contest, though, so 27/10 for a home win and under 2.5 goals in the game appeals from the Arsenal vs Norwich odds.
Last Arsenal line-up: Martinez, Tierney, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Willock, Xhaka, Lacazette, Pepe, Saka.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich showed plenty of spirit when taking Manchester United to extra-time in the FA Cup, before eventually bowing out via a 2-1 loss.
Todd Cantwell cancelled out Odion Ighalo’s opener, but the Red Devils regained the initiative after Timm Klose was sent off and Harry Maguire’s late strike proved decisive.
Cantwell said: “Everyone is gutted. To play very well and to concede so late after defending so well for the whole game, it’s crushing.
“We have to tie in all our focus on Arsenal now. I genuinely believe if we play like we did here, we’ll give them a right good game.
“It’s really important to get results and points now. This team will stick together and fight and hopefully we can pull it out.”
The Canaries look doomed for a quick return to the Championship after also losing their last three league fixtures by an aggregate score of 5-0.
They were level at the break against Southampton and Everton recently, though, and do tend to keep things tight in the opening period.
We’re adding 11/5 for 0-0 at half-time to our Arsenal vs Norwich betting tips, but 13/4 for the visitors to be drawing at the interval and then lose is another selection.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Lewis, Klose, Rupp, Cantwell, Buendia, McLean, Tettey, Pukki.
Sheff Utd 1-2 ARSENAL – Nicolas Pepe (pen), Dani Ceballos
NORWICH 1-2 Man Utd (AET) – Todd Cantwell
Head-to-head: Norwich 2-2 Arsenal, Arsenal 2-1 Norwich
