Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal TEAMtalk

When is Arsenal v Norwich?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday July 1.

What time does Arsenal v Norwich kick-off?

The game is scheduled for a 6pm kick-off and is one of three Premier League matches in that time-slot with another to follow at 8.15pm.

What is at stake?

It is arguably the highest stake match of the restart so far, with both teams very much in the last-chance saloon with regard their respective ambitions for the season.

Arsenal’s hopes of Champions League qualification are already fading away, but they will be just about gone completely should the Gunners fail to win this one. Europa League qualification would have been seen at the Emirates as a second prize this season, but even that is beginning to slip away from them.

Norwich, on the other hand, are in a desperate position rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table. A win might give them half a chance of making a fight of it, but a defeat may just seal their fate.

Where can I watch Arsenal v Norwich?

The match will be broadcast by BT Sport.

Is Arsenal v Norwich free-to-air?

I’m afraid not. BT Sport have opted to keep all of their live Premier League matches requiring a subscription.

What is the team news?

Man Utd were in FA Cup action on Sunday, so expect Mikel Arteta to ring the changes to freshen up his side. That should start with star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returning to the line-up. Goalkeeper Bernd Leno is still absent and probably will be for the rest of the season at least. Defender David Luiz is a doubt with a hamstring complaint.

Norwich had defensive woes with Timm Klose serving a suspension and Grant Hanley still out injured. Christoph Zimmerman and Sam Byram are also long-term absentees.

What happened in the reverse match?

Aubameyang rescued a point for Arsenal at Carrow Road back in November with a second half equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw.

What are the odds?

Norwich are on a demoralising losing run, so Arsenal are very much the favourites at 4/9 here. The Canaries are priced at 6/1, and the draw available at 15/4.
