Centre-back David Luiz passed a fitness test to start, with Bukayo Saka having to settle for a bench after celebrating his new deal. Hector Bellerin, Dani Ceballos, Aubameyang and Reiss Nelson have all come into the starting XI, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock, Nicolas Pepe and Saka dropping out.Cedric Soares has returned to the match day squad but there is no room for Mesut Ozil.ADVERTISEMENTArsenal had endured a tough return to action with back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Brighton but bounced back with a win over Southampton before booking their spot in the semi-finals of the FA Cup by beating Sheffield United.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe Gunners can close the gap on fourth-place Chelsea to eight points with victory over rock-bottom Norwich, although Frank Lampard’s side can extend the gap with a win over West Ham later on Wednesday. A win would see them jump up three places in the table to seventh. One of Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield United will likely jump above them again, however, when they face off on Thursday. Norwich are in desperate need of three points. They are six points off safety, with the worst goal difference in the league.Who will win?Arsenal0%Norwich0%Draw0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your results Advertisement Arsenal team news: Mikel Arteta makes four changes as Aubameyang and Lacazette both start Commentcenter_img Arsenal vs Norwich team news Arsenal: Martinez, Bellerin, David Luiz, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Aubameyang, Nelson, LacazetteNorwich: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Trybull, Lewis, Tettey, Mclean, Rupp, Buendia, Cantwell,Pukki Metro Sport ReporterWednesday 1 Jul 2020 5:07 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link233Shares Advertisementlast_img read more
