Arsenal take on Norwich City in their second League Cup clash of the campaign.

Although Arsene Wenger’s put out a very different starting XI to the one we saw thrash Everton 5-2 on Sunday, Arsenal still have the momentum and should manage to beat the Canaries without too much hassle.

Norwich are currently sixth in the Championship table and are therefore tougher opposition than Doncaster Rovers, who Arsenal beat 1-0 in the last round. However, considering the Gunners looked far from convincing against Donny, this could go very wrong, very quickly.

Since Arsenal first faced the Canaries in January 1952, they’ve won 27 times, drawn 19 and lost 11.

The last time the two teams went head-to-head was April 2016, which Arsenal won 1-0.

Norwich haven’t beaten Wenger’s side since October 2012 when they won 1-0 at Carrow Road thanks to a goal from Grant Holt… remember that guy?

While this is ‘just’ the League Cup, it’s still silverware, so, at the risk of sounding like the boss, the aim should always be to win.

Arsenal are still without Santi Cazorla (ankle), Calum Chambers (hip), Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring), David Ospina (groin) and Danny Welbeck (groin).

Here are how the teams line up:
