Norwich City are looking to build on their first win in eight matches at Everton last weekend and pick up a third home success of the season. 

Eighth-placed Arsenal, now under the temporary stewardship of interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg following Unai Emery's departure on Friday, will be determined to end a run of five matches without a win.

Team news

Jamal Lewis (knee) returned to team training for Norwich this week and will be monitored along with Todd Cantwell (knock), but Alex Tettey is unavailable for personal reasons.

Grant Hanley (groin) is getting nearer to a first-team return but Sunday's match is too soon.

A trio of Arsenal players are being closely monitored by the Arsenal medical team, although Sead Kolasinac (hamstring) is available for selection.

David Luiz (bruised ribs), Shkodran Mustafi (bruised foot) and Hector Bellerin (hamstring) will all be assessed. Dani Cellabos (hamstring) has been ruled out.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil scored his first ever Premier League goals against Norwich, netting twice in a 4-1 win at the Emirates in October 2013. To date, it’s the only time he’s scored more than once in a match in the competition.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 80 per cent of Arsenal's away goals in the Premier League this season, with four out of five. He has also netted eight goals in his 10 appearances against promoted sides for the Gunners.
