    Mission Impossible for Norwich as Arsenal come to town

    Probable Lineups:

    NorwichArsenalNorwich City (4-2-3-1): Ruddy, Martin, Turner, R Bennett, Whittaker, Johnson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Howson, Olsson, Elmander

    Norwich City could be guaranteed relegation after this match as they need a huge number of goals along with a win in order to avoid the drop. However, that seems rather impossible as Neil Adams prepares his squad for their final Premier League match before they head down into the Championship. Picking up only one point from a possible 18 from their last six matches can sum up their end of season form. The manager who got an inspiration draw at Chelsea last weekend could very well use the same squad to face another top four team. As this is the final game of their Premier League run, they will surely want to give the fans something to cheer about.

    Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Arteta, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud

    Arsenal has aleady admitted to a fourth place finish as Arsene Wenger turns his attention to their FA Cup final against Hull City later this month. The manager won’t look to make too many changes but news suggest that Aaron Ramsey can make a first team appearance after missing out on last weeks match against West Bromwich Albion. Mathieu Flamini who started last week looks to be the one sacrificed in place of the incoming Welshman. The Gunners are still suffering from a injury crisis in midfield with Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain possibly missing the final match.

    What the fans are saying…
    Remember this?

    Arsenal’s form earlier this season was seen as sensational and this goal from Jack Wilshere in their win over Norwich City was one of the most memorable Gunners goal. Have a look!

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Giroud

    Olivier Giroud has netted two in two for Arsenal as he continues to increase his current 16 goal tally. As the lone striker, the French attacker will be used as a target who will be effective both in the air and on the ground.
