We managed to put our put our loss against West Brom behind us with a win over Dinamo Zagreb in midweek, but it’s back to the Premier League this weekend. We wasted a superb chance to go top of the league last time out, and need to make up for it against Norwich on Sunday.
We could theoretically go top of the table if results go our way, but even with a win it seems unlikely.
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up against Norwich:
GK) Petr Cech
No questions here, as David Ospina has shown he’s struggling at the moment. We need a win, and Cech therefore needs to start.

RB) Hector Bellerin
Bellerin has rapidly become a vital part of our setup, and we saw how much we missed him during his spell on the sidelines.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Kieran Gibbs could get the nod, as this will be Monreal’s third game in a week. If he’s fit though, then the Spaniard should start.
CB) Per Mertesacker
The same applies with Mertesacker. Gabriel Paulista has shown himself to be more than capable of slotting in beside either centre-back, but Arsene Wenger seems to have decided on his first choice pairing.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
The Frenchman is unquestionably first choice, and if it weren’t for his niggling injury problems he’d never be dropped.
