Arsenal will play host to Norwich City on Saturday and are playing for a spot in the top four as the end of the English Premier League season draws near.
Should Arsene Wenger and Arsenal collect a full three points from the match it would move them up to third place in the league as both Chelsea and Tottenham do not play today.
The Gunners are currently fifth, two points off of Chelsea and Tottenham, but both of those clubs will not see Premier League action this weekend since they both played in their respective Europa League matches on Thursday.
Arsene Wenger's side do have a game in hand on Spurs coming into this weekend, and have their destiny in their own hands in securing a spot in the UEFA Champions League for a 16th straight year.
They have won three straight matches and are coming off a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion in their last league match. But the Gunners will surely be focused for this match given that they were beaten by Norwich 1-0 at Carrow Road last October.
That result gave the Canaries their first win of the season and marked the start of a run that included going unbeaten in 10 straight matches, but they have won just once in their last 15 games.
The club does not lose too often though and have 14 draws in total this season, but that may not be enough for Chris Hughton's side who remain just four points above the relegation line.
Norwich drew 2-2 with Swansea City last weekend as Luke Moore's equalizer denied them a precious victory after goals from Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner had negated Michu's tally. Norwich have won just one league away game all season and have already lost at Anfield and Old Trafford this year.
Kick-off for the match is at 10:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
