LINEUP – Norwich vs Arsenal: Boss Uses STRONG 4-5-1 Formation

Alex Neil has confirmed that Russell Martin will return to the squad after missing the match against Chelsea due to personal reasons, but Alex Tettey (thigh) has been ruled out once again.

Martin could return at right-back then, although Andre Wisdom has been part of a back four that has only conceded one goal in their last two matches.

Ryan Bennett, Sebastian Bassong and Martin Olsson are expected to retain their places elsewhere in the back four. Neil may continue with the 4-4-1-1 formation, so Gary O’Neil could line up alongside Youssouf Mulumbu as he did last week, with Graham Dorrans the main alternative option in that area.

Jonny Howson and Robbie Brady may perhaps start ahead of the likes of Nathan Redmond out wide, although Redmond is also an option in the number ten role.

Wes Hoolahan is expected to return to the side at Carrow Road though, given he has regularly been left out for away matches this season.

Dieumerci Mbokani got the nod ahead of Cameron Jerome last time out, and could keep his starting place against the Gunners.

Matt Jarvis remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.
