Norwich City vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

by hisham

Arsenal’s first match since they sacked Unai Emery is a trip to Carrow Road and Norwich City.

Norwich City earned a vital win away at a struggling Everton side last weekend, winning 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Goals from Todd Cantwell and Dennis Srbney secured Norwich’s first league win since September.

Arsenal were held at home by Southampton in the league, with Alexandre Lacazette’s late goal enough for a point.

Emery’s last game in charge was a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.
