Norwich vs Arsenal − Where and when to watch this afternoon’s Premier League clash
Norwich have the privilege of being the first team Arsenal will face under interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg. The Gunners legend took the reins on Friday, after the sacking of Unai Emery, but nobody quite knows what to expect from him. However, he’ll have one thing his predecessor didn’t − the backing of the fans. This being Arsenal though, goodness knows how long any support from the stands will last. Our guide explains all you need to know to watch Norwich vs Arsenal this afternoon, including full live stream details.

Norwich vs Arsenal − Match preview
It isn’t clear how long Ljungberg will get to prove he’s got what it takes to take up the role of permanent manager, but the simple fact that he isn’t Unai Emery will surely work in his favour. Arsenal’s fans have been calling for his head for weeks now, and their wish was granted after their home defeat to Frankfurt on Thursday.
Arsenal have a pair of world class forwards in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, but there are big question marks hanging over the rest of the squad.
Clearly certain players had issues with the Spaniard − something that also punctuated his spell in charge of PSG, though that dressing room contained the likes of Neymar and Edinson Cavani rather than, ahem, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka− and it will be interesting to see who raises their game now that he’s been dismissed.
Norwich come into this afternoon’s game in 19th place and four points from safety, but they got their first victory since September 14 last weekend, when they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Christoph Zimmermann’s return to the side. Was the German the missing piece of Daniel Farke’s puzzle?
