Norwich v Arsenal Preview And Predictions - Boxing Day Premier League

Arsenal will be looking for a fifth consecutive win in all competitions when they take on bottom of the table Norwich on Boxing Day. Mikel Arteta's team sit fourth in the league table and come into the game off the back of securing a League Cup semifinal spot following their 5-1 thrashing of Sunderland and one expects their winning run to continue on Sunday against a Norwich team that has registered just two wins all season.

Recent Form

After losing to Aston Villa 2-0 last week, Norwich have now lost three games in a row and have only scored once in their last five fixtures, and Dean Smith would have relished the opportunity to get one back over the club that let him go just a few weeks prior. 

The loss also means that they remain at the bottom of the league table with the worst home record in the league, with only five points from nine such games this season. 

Arsenal were a class act against a very poor Leeds side at the weekend, it was the only game that took place on Saturday due to the uprising of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. 

The Gunners managed to beat Leeds 4-1 in a very easy manner and as good as they were on the day, questions needed to be asked about Leeds’ defending. 

Throughout the whole game Leeds defenders were seen chasing their opposite man across the field, with their man-marking against a free moving and passing side clearly the wrong approach.

Arsenal To Win And Over 2.5 Goals

Since 1993, Arsenal have only lost one game against Norwich which was a 1-0 defeat in the Premier League back in 2012. Over the course of this 21 game period Arsenal’s record is W12-D8-L1 and while the number of draws may come as a surprise to Arsenal fans but there were five in the first six games of counting which means that they have only drawn three times since 1995. 

Arsenal managed to score 44 goals over these games whilst Norwich only managed a mere 17 which means that the match goal average is 2.90, with both teams finding the net on 13 occasions. 

Arsenal have been poor away from home this season, with only ten points from nine games away from the Emirates. 

This play is almost negated by the fact that their 15 positions between the two clubs in the table and Norwich are currently the worst team in the league at home. 

Arsenal have picked up some goal scoring form in recent weeks, having scored nine in their last three games and this game is against the worst of the bunch. 

The young gunners have been flying recently with seven out of the nine goals scored in the last three coming from players under the age of 22. Martinelli in-particular is in fantastic form, scoring three in his last two and taking Emile Smith-Rowe’s place in the team.
