Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be hoping to extend their impressive run of form on Boxing Day, as they travel to East Anglia to face Dean Smith’s Norwich City.
The Gunners most recently booked their place in the semi-final of this season’s Carabao Cup as they defeated League One side Sunderland 5-1 on Tuesday evening.
Eddie Nketiah, 22, scored his first senior hat-trick in the win, with Charlie Patino and Nicolas Pepe also netting in the cup success.
With attention now turning back to domestic action, however, Arsenal will be looking to further close the gap on third-place Chelsea, who are now just six points ahead of them with only 18 games played thus far.
As for the hosts, time is running out and points are needed imminently to give them the best chance of avoiding an immediate return to the Championship this season.
The Canaries have picked up 10 points so far and would jump out of the relegation places with a win against the Gunners this weekend.
