Norwich City have it all to do in the fight for Premier League survival, with their latest opportunity for precious points coming at Arsenal on Wednesday.

The Canaries are rock bottom of the Premier League table, 6 points from safety and with an inferior goal difference.

However, Norwich boss Daniel Farke may be buoyed by the resilient display in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter final with Manchester United, with it taking a Harry Maguire goal in the final stages of extra time to put his side out.

For Arsenal, a wretched restart to the Premier League campaign was steered back on track with back-to-back victories, where a 0-2 win at Southampton was followed with an FA Cup win over Sheffield United on Sunday.

Despite defeat in their opening two league games since Project Restart began, the door is still ajar for Arsenal to claim a Europa League place, with the ninth-placed Gunners two points off bitter rivals Spurs in seventh and just one point behind out-of-form Sheffield United.

Daniel Farke will be without Timm Klose for the trip to the Emirates after he saw red against Manchester United on Saturday.

The impressive Todd Cantwell, who scored against United, will be assessed ahead of play after picking up a knock, with Lukas Rupp also likely to have to prove his fitness.

Selection struggles don’t stop there for the German, who also has Grant Hanley, Sam Byram and Cristoph Zimmermann on the sidelines.

Arsenal’s injury list is lengthy also, with Mikel Arteta missing no fewer than 4 first team stars for the remainder of the campaign.

Disappointingly for Arteta, 3 of those were injuries sustained post-restart, with Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari and Bernd Leno all joining Calum Chambers in the treatment room for the rest of the season.

Cedric Soares, who signed a permanent contract at the club last week despite not playing a game for Arsenal, is in line to make his debut.

Lucas Torreira is on the comeback trail for the Gunners after breaking his ankle in an FA Cup clash with Portsmouth before lockdown, but this game is expected to come too soon for the Uruguayan.

Arsenal v Norwich City is a 6pm kick off on Wednesday, July 1.
