Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Arsenal quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Brighton, with the team beating Southampton 2-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium. The Gunners are not enjoying a season to remember, but, no doubt, the midweek triumph gave them a confidence boost. Considering that important centre-back David Luiz returns from suspension, it is no surprise Mikel Arteta’s men are seen as favourites to win Wednesday’s football game.
The Canaries, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the Premier League ahead of the trip to London. The rock-bottom side have slim chances of securing the elite division survival, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Arsenal’s party at Emirates Stadium. Grant Hanley, Christoph Zimmermann, and Sam Byram remain in the recovery room, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the capital club.
Highlighted Player (Mesut Ozil):
Mesut Ozil gained international recognition at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The attacking midfielder impressed with Germany at the showpiece tournament and, as a result, Real Madrid chiefs decided to sign him.
Ozil won the 2011/2012 La Liga trophy with los Blancos and, against all odds, the club bosses decided to sell him to Arsenal at the end of the 2012/2013 campaign. The Turkish-born player scored 19 goals for Real Madrid in 105 appearances for the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
On the other hand, Mesut Ozil has yet to win the Premier League with Arsenal, but he helped North London club lift two FA Cup titles (2013/2014, 2014/2015). In 2014 Ozil lifted the FIFA World Cup trophy with Germany and, no doubt, that is regarded as the biggest success of his career. The German international used to play for Werder Bremen and Schalke 04 in the past as well.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
