Arsenal have now won five of their last six games in all competitions, and have staged a recovery which could see them overtake Tottenham into fourth place with a win this weekend. They have a game in hand on Spurs, and a victory would move the Gunners one point ahead of their North London rivals.
Only reigning champions Manchester City have beaten Arsenal at the Emirates in the league this year, despite their season-long struggle for consistency, and they host a Norwich team not yet completely safe from relegation here. The Canaries are in terrible form, and have only picked up ten points from a possible 36 since the start of 2013.
They'll be banking on causing another upset to record what would be only their second win of the season on the road, having seen off Manchester United and Tottenham as well as Arsenal at Carrow Road so far. Hughton will be without Andrew Surman through injury, while first and second choice goalkeepers John Ruddy and Mark Bunn stay doubtful alongside Anthony Pilkington.
For Arsenal, Abou Diaby and Per Mertesacker are injured and suspended respectively, though Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere could return from their knocks. After his game-winning heroics against West Brom, a hamstring injury has left Tomáš Rosický in doubt.
