Aaron Ramsey: Acknowledges frustration that Arsenal have fallen behind

Arsenal boast a strong Premier League record against Norwich City, with Aaron Ramsey a recent tormentor going into Sunday’s clash at Carrow Road.

Team news

Norwich will again be without Alex Tettey, who has a groin injury, but Russell Martin is available again having missed last weekend’s defeat at Chelsea due to personal reasons.

Arsene Wenger has hinted that Alexis Sanchez will continue for Arsenal despite suffering a tight hamstring in the midweek Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is fit again following his own hamstring problem.

Kick-off at Carrow Road on Sunday is at 4.15pm.
