Norwich vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 December 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Arsenal travel to Norwich City as Freddie Ljungberg takes charge of the club for the first time.
Unai Emery was sacked on Friday after guiding the club to seven successive games without a win – their worst record in over 25 years – and
Daniel Farke’s Norwich, however, are finally looking up again after ending a miserable streak of their own with victory against Everton last weekend.
They famously upset Manchester City earlier in the season and will relish the chance to wreak havoc on another Premier League giant at Carrow Road.
Arsenal interim manager Freddie Ljungberg made five changes to the team who lost 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday in Unai Emery’s final match in charge.
Bernd Leno, Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette earned recalls at Carrow Road with Emiliano Martinez, Sokratis, Kieran Tierney, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli on the bench.
Norwich made just one change to the team that secured a 2-0 victory at Everton as with Alex Tettey unavailable due to personal reasons, Ibrahim Amadou came into the fray.
Christoph Zimmermann wore the armband for the Canaries while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang led the Gunners despite the inclusion of former skipper Granit Xhaka in the centre of midfield.
Norwich: Krul, Aarons, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Byram, Amadou, Trybull, Cantwell, McLean, Hernandez, Pukki.
Subs: Roberts,Vrancic, Lewis, Emi, Stiepermann, Fahrmann, Srbeny.
Arsenal: Leno, Chambers, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Willock, Ozil, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Subs: Tierney,Papastathopoulos, Torreira, Pepe, Martinez, Martinelli, Saka.
