Arsenal picked up a win in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup against Sheffield United and next up, they take on Norwich in the English Premier League.

The Gunners have gotten things back on track after winning their previous two matches whereas the Canaries are in a heap of trouble with relegation looking almost inevitable for them.

All these statistics mean Arsenal should be picking up an easy win and in a bid to do so, manager Mikel Arteta has been handed a triple injury boost.

Cedric Soares is yet to play a game since his arrival in January but the club have confirmed that he is fit and available for selection on Wednesday. Midfielder Lucas Torreira has also returned to full training and should be ready to take on Norwich City.

Mesut Ozil has fallen down the pecking order since the restart and he missed the FA Cup clash due to a slight lower back injury. The German could also be fit and available for selection but we do not think Arteta will be keen to use him in his starting XI anymore.

The detailed injury list is as follows(according to the club’s official website):

Cedric Soares
Back in full training and available for selection following facial injury.

Lucas Torreira
Back in full training and being assessed ahead of Norwich City (h) on Wednesday.

Mesut Ozil
