Arsenal vs Norwich Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Wednesday, 1 July 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners are currently placed ninth in the table, trailing two points below the seventh-placed Spurs. In order to secure qualification for Europe, the Gunners will have to finish seventh at the least. However, time is fast running out for them.
As things stand, this upcoming week will be the most important match-day for Mikel Arteta’s men till the end of the season. The reason being, while they are taking on the worst team of the competition, while their closest two competitors – Spurs and the Blades are taking on each other.
On that account, at least one of them will drop points, and if the Gunners are able to secure the three points against the relegation-threatened Canaries, they will do themselves a huge favor in the race for Europe.
Considering the stature of either team, their respective recent forms and prior h2h clashes, it’s inferred that Arsenal are on course to post the victory.
Arsenal vs Norwich: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the preceding thirteen encounters saw the Canaries conceding two or more goals.
- 11 of the previous 13 wins had gone to the Gunners.
- It’s been eight years since the Gunners have lost against this opponent.
- At this venue, the last the guests won was back in 1992.
- The Gunners are on a three-game winning run at home in PL fixtures.
Arsenal vs Norwich: Prediction
The Gunners recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Southampton. A goal apiece in each of the halves secured the much-needed three points for Arteta’s men.
In the meantime, the Canaries lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Everton. In a crucial game, the hosts did manage to defend well all through the first half. However, ten minutes after the break, the Toffees slotted in a goal, and held the lead till the final whistle.
In terms of result, the Gunners are easily the favorites. They have been one of the Premier League titans for a very long time, and they are going after a European spot desperately.
On the other hand, not only are the Canaries a new, inexperienced team in this competition (they were promoted just last summer), but they are also placed dead last in the table, and are frontrunners to get relegated.
On top of that, the Gunners have a terrific h2h record against them. Going on, the Gunners are on a two-match winning run, and were unbeaten in seven of their past nine home appearances, whereas the Canaries are on a four-match losing run, and they have a total of one PL on the road this season.
As such, expect a win from Arsenal this Wednesday.
