Norwich v Arsenal Tips

Norwich take on Arsenal in the early Premier League kick off as we get back to business following on from the international football break. It looks a cracking fixture on paper with both the Norwich and Arsenal philosophy firmly on attacking football. Norwich's home games this year are averaging 3.2 goals per game while Arsenal's games on the road are averaging a staggering 5.6 goals. At home, both sides have scored in 4/5 of Norwich's games and it's the same percentage in games for Arsenal away from the Emirates in the Premier League.

Robin Van Persie is fresh and rested after being let go from the Dutch camp midweek and should be in line to start for Arsenal and is currently available at odds against (11/10) with Unibet, a fantastic price considering he's netted 29 times in 28 Premier League games for Arsenal in 2011. If Norwich do go on the offensive as expected, the pace of Walcott and Gervinho, along with the finishing of the Dutchman could punish them on the counter. Unibet also refund stakes on goalscorers if they do not start. Continuing the goalscorer theme, Steve Morison is a man in hot recent form, having hit the net in each of Norwich's last two games and also recently got off the mark for Wales. Unibet offer best priced 7/2 for the big 6'2" 28 year old to exploit the vulnerable Arsenal defense if you like your outside tips.
