Arsenal vs Norwich: Match stats

  • Arsenal have only lost one of their eight Premier League home games against Norwich (W5 D2) – the defeat came on the first ever day of Premier League action on 15th August 1992, with the Canaries coming from behind to win 4-2 at Highbury.
  • Norwich have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 Premier League meetings with Arsenal (31 goals conceded), with that coming in their only win against them in that time (1-0 in October 2012).
  • This will be both Arsenal and Norwich’s first ever competitive game played in the month of July.
  • Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 26 home Premier League games against promoted sides (W22 D4), since losing consecutive such matches against West Brom and Newcastle in 2010-11.
  • Since a 2-1 win at Spurs in April 2012, Norwich are winless in 21 Premier League games in London (D6 L15), losing each of the last seven in a row.
  • Arsenal have won as many Premier League games in 13 matches under Mikel Arteta (W5 D5 L3) as they did in 18 games under Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg this season (W5 D8 L5).
  • Arsenal registered their 10th Premier League win of the season in their 2-0 win away at Southampton – it was the longest they’d had to wait for their 10th league win a season since 1975/76, when they also won their 10th game in their 31st match on their way to finishing 17th that season.
  • Norwich are the only Premier League side yet to recover a single point from a losing position this season – no team in Premier League history has ever failed to gain a point from a losing position across a full campaign.
  • Norwich have scored just one goal across their last seven Premier League matches (W1 D1 L5) despite attempting 71 shots with an expected goal ratio of 6.2. 14 of those shots have been from top scorer Teemu Pukki, who has failed to score with any.
  • Against Southampton, Arsenal had two English scorers (Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock) in a Premier League game for the first time since August 2016 against Liverpool. It was the first time the Gunners had two English scorers aged 21 or younger in a league game since May 1989, when Michael Thomas and David Rocastle scored in a 5-0 win over Norwich.
