Norwich vs Arsenal: Gunners to bag three points

Posted on Posted in Arsenal blog

Arsenal travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City and if the stats suggest that at 1.7 they are a cracking bet to secure another three points.

The last three Premier League meetings between the two sides have seen the Gunners score at least four times and concede one goal on each occasion.

The Canaries have also won none none of their last 11 matches at Carrow Road in all competitions against Arsene Wenger’s men – drawing 7 and losing 4.

That makes good reading for Arsenal fans, particularly as they are on a roll in the league and have won their last three games in the league impressive style.

Easy to see then why the 1.7 with Paddy Power for a win makes plenty of appeal, particularly when they have a striker in Robin van Persie who is in the form of his life and scoring for fun.

The Dutchman has now scored 29 goals in 28 Premier League matches in 2011, and has done us plenty of favours in the first goal scorer and any time goal scorer markets in recent weeks.

I can’t see any reason why we should desert what has been a winning and profitable tactic, and it’s not hard to think that he will once again be instrumental in what should be a comfortable victory for the Gunners.

Betfred go 5 about him netting the opener and that looks unbelievable value (he is as short as 4.33), as does the 2.1 on offer with the same firm about him scoring any time during the 90 minutes.

In the correct score markets I am going to take a punt and bet on a wide margin Arsenal victory for hopefully a bumper pay out.

I fancy them to put four past their opponents, and there are some massive prices on offer for them to do so.

Betfred go 29 about 4-0, while Boylesports offer 26 about 4-1. Split stakes on both will hopefully see us quids in.

  1. That impressive ADMIN with the stats,but let’s keep to the journalist side of the match preview,me and maths don’t get along. I don’t know about arsenal when they come back from an international break but playing a team that unknown to the boys in the epl is something different or you can throw out the cup competition becoz norwich will come out for a victory and play arsenal game,but at epl they might just be a banana skin that hard to see.

  2. I am not going to tell you how skeptical I am about the b side that going to play on the 25 against man city,squallci,djourou,benayoun,diaby,chamakh,chamberlain,fabianski,frimpong,arshavin,park, miguel and other french midfield defender have been watching from the sidelines
    for most the season will make you start pondering whether the side can put up a decent performance, been beaten by man city will put our run of form in ruins,history as shown that we win matches in a row and go through bad patches of defeats until a win comes along,players need time to play, arsenal a side need to put away games early and allowed others to come on.

  3. Morning Dutch,morning all,
    We’ve played Norwich 42 times and lost only 8 of them. Our last 2 meetings in the prem were both 4-1 gunners victories home and away. That doesn’t mean an automatic 3 points but realistically we should get something out of it.
    Well, unfortuanately I have to go to work so I won’t know what happens until I get back. Keep the faith for me dude.


  4. Watching the game here in the US at a reasonable time in the morning – yippee. Makes a nice change from the middle of the night job in Oz! Three points – we looked great going forward and really apart from the goal they scored did not see much to cause alarm at the back, although that fat prick Dowd did his best with a few soft free kicks near the end.

    Gervinho should have a had a couple at least and RVP should have made it another hattrick but I am not going to criticise him!

  5. We can take issue over our profligacy at the front, and our continuing tendency to cock things up at the back, but last year this is a team that might well have folded like a cheap deck of cards after that ridiculous first goal. And that was WITH Nasri and Fabregas.

    Despite or perhaps because of our terrible start, something fundamental has developed. This 2011 edition now seems to have the wherewithal to persevere, and that is so very heartening to see.

    Walcott and Gervinho were shredding them apart, particularly in the first half. Santos had a good outing until the free kick he gave away needlessly. But once again MOTM was none other than our Dutch Superhero. He was everywhere today, and pretty much unplayable. Not much more to say about RvP that has not already been said, but it’s a lucky thing for all of us to be around to witness and enjoy the remarkable year he’s having.

    A nervy 3 points to be sure, but ever so satisfying because of our newfound confidence. Let’s keep it going….

  6. It was very nice to win after going one down. The usual nailbiting stuff. As 1Nil says, we shredded them on the wings, repeatedly. Ramsey and Arteta were fluent, Theo and Gevinho were fast and dangerous, Song did the necessary and Robin was the dashing hero once more. Gervinho should have added two more goals at least. At the back, Kosh looked good to me at left back and Shez (the goalie) continues to impress mightily.

    Two questions, the first unfortunately so familiar: who is the cover striker for RVP?! And why does Per Mertersaker reportedly play so well for Germany and look so vulnerable and slow for us? He did get in a few good tackles though.

    All in all, another very good day out and reasons to be optimistic for the season. Congrats to the boys!!!

  7. great win but there are a few concerns….firstly mertesacker reli needs to improve he seems slow and confused…arteta was slopy, giving the ball away cheaply..,finally gervinho realy has to work on his finishing had 2 realy good chances shud have converted both..
    now for the positives walcott was realy impresive and deserved a goal…vermaelen is for me a great CB and a calming presence in the defense,, koshielny is geting better day by day and there is the best player this season the skipper RVP simply unbelievable…

  8. Arsene Wenger might leave Arsenal..

    Will they replace him with a Manager who will either:-

    (1) buy British players?
    (2) give British youth a chance?

    Wenger was over-rated and anti-english (for the vast majority of his time).

    He should be commended by the French or Spanish FAs for services to their game
    and for helping to cripple English National Team Sporting achievements.

  9. @Arsenal_player_manuel….,
    Not getting into it with you bro, Im just gonna write a list of english internationals who have played under Wenger at Arsenal at some point.
    David Seaman
    Lee Dixon, Nigel Winterburn, Steve Bould, Tony Adams, Martin Keown, Matty Upson, Sol Campbell, Ashley Cole.
    Jack Wilshere, Ray Parlour, Paul Merson, David Platt, Theo Walcott, David Bentley, Steve Sidwell,
    Ian Wright, Jay Bothroyd, Francis Jeffers…etc, etc
    And youl be adding Bartley, Frimpong, AOC and Gibbs to that list soon.
    Dont blame Arsene Wenger because your media cant get behind your team for the duration of one major tournament and have hindered your chances for the last 20 years.
    On the gooners recent run of wins and RvPs hotstreak…..keep it comin! Nobody wants to play us next!!!!
    For me Gervinho is a serious addition, unplayable at times and he gives us that injection of pace and runs directly at defenders aswel as getting in behind….and it seems to be rubbing off on theo….big trouble for the opposition once he goes on a scoring run.
    Its like Iv said before, a trophyless season is not an issue, we may well see another one this year, but were seeing improvement and a structure, an honesty of effort. These players are playing for AW and the fans, look and listen to the noise and energy coming from the stands, its being reciprecated….great time to be a gunner right now.

  10. Shambo is on the money here.

    Looking at the current sqaud you can see that the whole Arsene is anti-british is a stupid claim to make considering Wilshere, Ramsey, Walcott, Gibbs, Frimpong and oxlade chamberlain are in the squad.

  11. Lots of people wont see his comments (already switched over the next page).

    U could’ve left him Shambo, i’m sure he just feels like typing anything

  12. Hey Ade, listen to this, You crying like a kid, Acting like a bitch, Making noise bout not being paid enough wage, Got sold in a trade, At the African Nations championships, Got shot at but they missed, Flew back the next day, Couldn’t stay away, Caught you at our training gates, Stealing team kit, Againt us he played – Trying hard and shit, Scored in a play, Ran across the pitch, Com’On SON – You wanna be wit us, Get the fuck outta here with that bull shhhit.
