NOR vs ARS Dream11: Arsenal start life after Unai Emery with an away trip in the Premier League against Norwich City at Carrow Road, with fan-favourite Freddie Ljungberg, set to take charge of his first game as the manager of his beloved club.
It has been a rather dismal start to the campaign by Arsenal this season, and so poor indeed that even at this early in the campaign, the Champions League looks difficult to achieve. That said, the thing we mentioned, early in the season, which means a lot of games to bridge the gap and to save the season still.
But the margin of error is too small, and Arsenal have to hit the ground running from the very minute under Ljungberg, to finish in the top-four. However, since Ljungberg is on an interim basis, he may feel a little bit eased into the job.
As for Norwich City, the biggest target for them, this season is to avoid the drop, to pass the first season Hurdle. They made a good start to the season, winning games they were not expected to. But since beating Manchester City 3-2 in September, the Canaries, lost six times in the subsequent seven games, collecting just one point in that period.
