On Tuesday Arsenal beat Dinamo Zagreb, of Croatia, 3-0 in the Champions League, meaning they go into their final group game, against Olympiakos in Greece, a fortnight later still with a chance to qualify for the knock-out stages.

They return to the Barclays Premier League at Norwich City having squandered the chance last weekend to take top spot. Had they won at West Bromwich Albion the Gunners would have been first; instead they lost and other results saw them drop to fourth place, though just two points off the top.

Having drawn with Spurs in their previous game, Arsenal face Norwich hoping to avoid a third league game without a win since May.

Norwich have lost five of their last six games, that poor sequence interrupted by the 1-0 win over Swansea in their last home game. In six home games in the league the Canaries have won two and lost three while scoring just seven goals but conceding only eight.

Arsenal have lost just two of 14 games against Norwich. Their first ever game in the Premier League, in August 1992, was against Norwich, at the old Highbury - and the Canaries won 4-2.

But the Gunners have won the last three while Norwich last beat the Gunners at Carrow Road in October 2012.
