Arsenal take on Norwich City in the English Premier League on Wednesday and according to Michael Owen, the Gunners should be picking up an easy win vs the Canaries, despite all their recent troubles.
Writing for BetVictor, Owen has claimed that Arsenal have a habit of bossing the so-called smaller sides at the Emirates and given the fact that Norwich are currently sitting at the bottom of the table, the North London side should be eyeing a third straight win.
The former Liverpool man wrote: “Arsenal started back in the Premier League with back to back defeats, which has almost put paid to any hopes of a Champions League qualification spot, although they did bounce back with a morale-boosting 2-0 win away at Southampton.
“I’ve always seen Arsenal of the last decade or so as a team who struggle against the big teams in the Premier League and who are also vulnerable against any team away from home.
“On the plus side, they are almost flat-track bullies at the Emirates stadium where they tend to always beat teams lower down the table.
“Their opponents in this match don’t come any lower down the table than Norwich and I can’t really make a case for anything other than a resounding home win for Arsenal.
“Norwich already look doomed with seven games to go and with their confidence at a particularly low ebb, the 1-0 loss to Everton was their 20th Premier League defeat of the season.
“They’ve only recorded two shots on target in the two games played since the restart, although leaving Pukki and Cantwell on the bench against Everton was surely a contributory factor given that they’ve scored 17 of their 25 league goals this season.”
This game vs Norwich could not have come at a better time for Arsenal and if they can manage to pick up a win then they could once again move closer to the top half of the table.
Finishing in the top-four of the table still seems to be really tough for Arteta men especially since the Gunners still have to play teams like Liverpool, Spurs and Leicester City.
But if Arsenal can manage to pick up a win vs Norwich then they will still have an outside chance of getting back into the Champions League next season.
