After both teams were involved in FA Cup quarter-finals at the weekend, it’s a return to Premier League action for Arsenal and Norwich City.

The Gunners have been hit and miss in league play since the restart, losing to Man City and Brighton but beating Southampton at their last attempt.

Norwich have yet to take a point since the resumption of football in England, but can at least take heart from a better display at the weekend.

Prediction

Norwich played well at the weekend in the FA Cup, but lost late on to Manchester United in demoralising fashion. Even so, they’ll fancy their chances of taking something from this game if they produce the same type of performance, with Arsenal having been particularly brittle when placed under pressure. If they are open at the back, though, the Gunners have the quality to take advantage.
