Arsenal's outside hope of Champions League

The Gunners restarted the season in disastrous fashion with Premier League defeats at Manchester City and Brighton along with an ever-growing injury list.

However, Mikel Arteta's side have rallied, winning 2-0 at Southampton before beating Sheffield United 2-1 to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Arsenal retain an outside hope of Champions League qualification, and a win against Daniel Farke's rock-bottom Canaries would put the Gunners six points off fifth-placed Wolves.

Team news

Arsenal will assess a number of injuries before the match. David Luiz (knee) was injured in the FA Cup win at Sheffield United but could be fit, while Mesut Ozil (back) and Lucas Torreira (ankle) also face tests - as does Cedric Soares (nose) who will be pushing to make his debut.

Pablo Mari (ankle), Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers (all knee) are long-term absentees.

Struggling Norwich will give fitness tests to Lukas Rupp (hip), Max Aarons (calf) and Adam Idah (quad) ahead of the game.

Timm Klose (suspension) and Moritz Leitner (hernia) will be absent, but Todd Cantwell is fit to play following a abductor issue. Defensive trio Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram (all hamstring) will miss the rest of the season.

Arsenal provisional squad: Martinez, Macey, Bellerin, Soares, Sokratis, Luiz, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Tierney, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira, Ceballos, Maitland-Niles, Willock, Ozil, Nelson, Pepe, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Nketiah.

Norwich provisional squad: Krul, McGovern, Fahrmann, Aarons, Lewis, Godfrey, Tettey, Rupp, Cantwell, McLean, Martin, Hernandez, Stiepermann, Vrancic, Buendia, Trybull, Duda, Pukki, Idah, Drmic.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Norwich

Though the Gunners have struggled this season, it is difficult to look beyond a home win here. Arteta's team showed resilience in their last two victories, and Norwich are starting relegation in the face.
