Norwich to beat Arsenal 5/1

Arsenal took four points from their two games against Norwich last season but, of the five goals they scored in those matches, Robin van Persie bagged four.

On Saturday, a few hours after Van Persie had scored one and set up two in Manchester United's 4-2 win against Stoke, his former team drew a blank at Carrow Road.

After an international break, and with their third-choice 'keeper, there was a certain vulnerability about Arsenal, who looked lethargic. Norwich, as they did in the 3-3 draw at the Emirates last season, caused them plenty of problems. At 5/1, Norwich always looked good value.
