Arsenal FC welcome Norwich to the Emirates Stadium on Premier League Match Day 3 Saturday after the International break with hopes of getting their first point point of the season, having suffered to three straight defeats from the first three games of the season.
Mikel Arteta and his men recorded just one win in August, which was Arsenal’s Carabao Cup second round 6 – 0 victory over West Brom on. Apart from that, they have not been able to score in any of their Premier League games and have conceded the most goals with a tally of 9.
There was so much tension at the Emirates Stadium after the 5 – 0 trashing of the Gunners by Manchester City in their last outing as they were literally picked apart by the ever dynamic UEFA Champions League Finalist Manchester City.
Arsenal went through an ordeal, having suffered an astonishing 2 – 0 defeat in the hands of Rookies Brentford in the opening game of the season, the forced into the jaws of the UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea on Match Day 2, to take another 2 – 0 trashing. However, Norwich will be a pretty good team to bounce back from such an ordeal.
Norwich City too will be looking for their first Premier League point as they too have had some tough fixtures in August. The Canaries lost all three of their opening fixtures but they are even in good standing then their Saturdays host as they were able to find the net against Leicester City in their last outing.
Norwich lost their opening game 3 – 0 to visitors Liverpool and again lost 5 – 0 to Manchester City compiling their woes and leaving them 2nd from the bottom after rock bottom Arsenal, whom they visit this coming weekend.
