Norwich vs Arsenal
Arsenal’s next outing will see them face off with Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday the 26th of December.
The Gunners head into the game on the back of a fine run of form, with their last outing seeing them book a spot in the League Cup semi-finals.
In the league, meanwhile, Arsenal have come through a rough patch and have now picked up three wins in a row.
This saw the north Londoners climb up to 4th in the Premier League table and four points clear of West Ham, who have played one game less.
However, both Manchester United and Tottenham can overtake Arsenal should the pair win their games in hand.
As a result, Mikel Arteta’s side cannot afford a slip up this week vs Norwich, who currently sit bottom of the Premier League with the worst goal-scoring record in the division, netting just eight in 17.
