Carabao Cup

Arsenal squad prepare for Norwich game

The Arsenal squad were hard at work at London Colney on Monday as they prepared for our Carabao Cup fourth-round clash against Norwich City.

Arsene Wenger's side are unbeaten in their last eight games against the Canaries, although the Championship side head into Tuesday's game on the back of a run of nine matches without defeat in all competitions.

Our club photographer was at London Colney and sent back these images. 


‘Our offensive force is a real strong point’

Six forwards, 18 goals, one major attacking force.

We have shared the goals about our forward line so far this season, with Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Alexis and Alex Iwobi all contributing.

Arsene Wenger is delighted with his strength in depth up front and, speaking ahead of our Carabao Cup fourth-round clash against Norwich, says it gives his plenty to ponder.

“That’s the luxury I have at the moment and the difficulty I have as well,” the manager said. “All these players do well, play well and they deserve to play. 

“Fortunately, we have important games every week, so I can give competition to everybody. We have so much offensive force on the bench as well. It’s really a strong point of the club at the moment.

“I always used [the League Cup] to give a chance to young boys,” he added. “We went to the final with a very young team and nearly won it. 

“I always focus on winning trophies in the Premier League and FA Cup domestically, and always used the League Cup as an education for our young players. 

“But with this team I have the squad to go further, so let’s see. Let’s focus on winning the match against Norwich and then we’ll see where we will go.”


Alexis My advice for ‘talented’ Nelson

Reiss Nelson has caught the eye of many with a series of exciting displays so far this season – and that includes Alexis.

With a front-row seat to the 17-year-old’s development, there are few better positioned to offer guidance to up-and-coming stars than the Chile international – and he likes what he has seen so far.

“Reiss has real talent, but he still has a lot to learn from other players,” Alexis told Arsenal Player.

“From playing more matches and getting more experience. That’s exactly what the boss is providing for him, so that he can carry on improving as a player.

“He must train every day and get better every day. It’s all down to him whether or not he wants to end up at the very top of the sport.”

The Breakdown

The Breakdown: Arsenal v Norwich preview

We return to Carabao Cup action on Tuesday when we take on Norwich City in the fourth round at Emirates Stadium.

Ahead of the game, tactical expert Michael Cox examines our opponents in detail to pinpoint their strengths, dangerman and areas to target.

Norwich City made a somewhat exciting managerial appointment last summer, bringing in Borussia Dortmund’s reserve coach Daniel Farke. He took time to settle in, and Norwich lost three of their opening five matches, but then they embarked upon a nine-match unbeaten run and appear equipped for a steady play-off challenge.   
Expect a 4-2-3-1 at the Emirates, although this will look more like two banks of four for long periods without the ball.
Farke has unashamedly said that his managerial philosophy is ‘about dominating matches’, and Norwich have generally controlled possession well this season. Their pass completion rate is the third-highest in the Championship behind Nottingham Forest and Fulham. They spread play to the flanks quickly, where the likes of Josh Murphy and Yanic Wildschut are good dribblers, and look to go for goal themselves, or play dangerous cut-backs, rather than blindly crossing the ball.
Farke is likely to rotate his side, so it depends on who plays – but Norwich have a variety of playmakers. Mario Vrancic, a left-footed creative No 10, enjoyed three good campaigns in the Bundesliga and looks impressive having taken a step down to a second-tier club. Youngster James Maddison has also caught the eye this season with a couple of outstanding long-range goals. Veteran Wes Hoolahan, now 35, remains a wonderfully-talented creator, but is probably more likely to be used as a substitute. 
Norwich’s defending hasn’t been particularly impressive this season, and they’ve looked rather vulnerable when defending set-pieces at times.
