Arsenal 1 Norwich 0: Premier League – LIVE!

Mikel Arteta could have yet more pressure heaped upon his shoulders should his Arsenal side continue a dismal start to the season as they host Norwich City.

Arsenal, currently bottom of the Premier League, welcome the second-from-bottom side with each bearing identical records of played three, lost three, and both having found time to fit in a drubbing from champions Manchester City.

While there is plenty of time left to make up for early misfirings, both will be eyeing a victory to lift them from their basement dwellings and gather much-needed early season confidence.

Daniel Farke’s side have conceded ten goals already, and were beaten 4-0 the last time these two met.

All of Gabriel, Thomas Partey and Ben White have been declared fit to play and will be available to Arteta, a significant boost for the Spaniard.
