Having to face Arsenal at this time, the chances of creating a surprise for Norwich players are clearly not high.
Norwich is still diving at the bottom of the rankings. They just easily lost to Aston Villa with 2 goals not equal. After a somewhat better competition, the canary could not get good results when consecutively having to receive defeats when encountering strong opponents.
Indeed, Norwich have had to receive 3 consecutive defeats recently. They could not score even 1 honorable goal. Both of these opponents are highly rated and are playing stably. Although they have been playing better, it is clear that the limited level is causing the Norwich players to face many difficulties. Playing at home, but really the ability to make a story of coach Dean Smith and his students is quite low.
Arsenal just got a jubilant victory over Sunderland to reach the semi-finals of the League Cup. This is their fourth win in a row in all competitions. Coach Arteta’s army is very confident in recent times.
After 3 consecutive defeats away, Arsenal have just won at Leeds United. To be fair, they had faced tough opponents before. The gunners are in very good form right now. The players are showing solid but equally effective play. Against an underdog team like Norwich, it promises to be one more victory in this round.
