Norwich City travel to the capital to face Arsenal in their first away game since the Premier League restarted - and our reporters are at the Emirates to bring you all the updates, analysis and reaction.
Canaries supporters were left feeling buoyed after City’s positive performance in the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.
Daniel Farke opted for a more pragmatic approach akin to how the Canaries attempted to operate against Everton - and they will be hoping to keep the Gunners dangerous attacking talent quiet tonight.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can follow up on their 2-1 FA Cup victory over Sheffield United on Sunday, but could be without a number of key players such as David Luiz and Mesut Ozil.
The last meeting between the sides was in December - with the game ending 2-2.
