Match Review: Norwich City 1 Arsenal 1 - Premier League 29.11.15
More dropped points, more injuries and another frustrating result. Arsenal rounded off a miserable November with another poor result, this time at struggling Norwich. Statistically our worst month for points under Arsene Wenger, we stayed true to form and picked up just two from nine in games we should have expected maximum points from. Not only that, but the injury situation has gone from bad to worse, with a potential long term injury to Alexis and bad knocks to Cazorla and Koscielny.
Thanks to being a writer for this wonderful site, I’ve been able to meet some of my Arsenal heroes. Men who performed wonders on the Highbury pitch and immediately daubed their own markings upon my memory banks. I was lucky enough to meet and question Ray Parlour and Nigel Winterburn last season. These men will be forever scarred by my no holds barred approach and fanboy-esque fawnings but no one can take away my memories of speaking directly to these icons who I placed on a pedestal. Not even the Court with their troublesome restraining orders.
Hello and welcome to Norwich vs Arsenal LIVE… brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van rental partner Europcar.
Arsenal come into this game in a buoyant mood following their convincing the 3-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in Tuesday’s Champions League game. Alexis Sanchez netted twice along with Mesut Ozil to put Arsene Wenger's men in the driving seat in their quest to qualify for the last-16 of Europe's elite competition.
Norwich, on the other hand, have only one win in their last eight outings and don’t exactly have the best of records against today’s opponents. Arsenal have only lost one of their last 13 meetings with Alex Neil’s side, winning seven of these games.
The Gunners also boast the league’s in form creator in Mesut Ozil, who now holds the record for consecutive Premier League assists (7), and it would be foolish to back against him adding to this tally today. Alex Neil will have to shut-down the the mercurial German's passing game if his side are to have any chance of keeping that increasingly illusive clean sheet.
