The International break maybe might just have come at the right time for Arsenal, a heavy schedule and ten wins in a row left the Gunners looking a little gased in their last outing against West Bromwich Albion and the Arsenal came away with just a draw. But this game represents the perfect post Internation Break game for an Arsenal side trying to maintain their push at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Arsene Wenger will be looking for Aaron Ramsey, Olivier Giroud and Mezut Ozil to continue their terrific form thus far and will be hoping to put this game away early as Arsenal have been the masters of the quick start this season.
Norwich City may be playing for manager Chris Hughton's job as the Canaries have really struggled of late and have lost three of their last four games. The bigger problem for Hughton though may be that the signings he brought in during the offseason havent really worked out. Ricky Van Wolfwinkel has only scored once in 7 games and Gary Hooper has only played two games. Norwich in general have been very solid defensively since Hughton took over and I think defence is what is going to turn things around for Norwich.
Arsenal look just far too strong in this game, its hard to back them at the restrictive price however so I've look at the markets to see if there is anything that jumps out to me. I think personally that the unders in this game could be a really solid bet. three of Arsenal's last four home games have gone under. All three of Norwich's away games have ended in under 2.5 goals. I'm taking the under here, lets cash a winner. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
