Arsenal can distance themselves from fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by taking three points from Norwich City this Saturday.

Arsenal can further cement their place in third spot in the Premier League table with a victory over Norwich City at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners will hope to overcome their recent rough patch, which includes two draws against Chelsea and Stoke City, while the Canaries try to claim their first victory in three league fixtures.

Arsene Wenger is likely to be without Theo Walcott for the home clash, which could pave the way for either Gervinho or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to provide service for Robin van Persie.

Meanwhile, Paul Lambert is expected to start Grant Holt after benching him for Norwich's 3-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend, with Elliot Bennett and Andrew Surman installed on the wings.

The midfield is likely to consist of David Fox, Bradley Johnson and Jonathan Howson.

Current form:

Arsenal: LWWLDD
Norwich: LDWLLL

Possible lineups:

Arsenal: Szczesny; Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Song, Ramsey; Banayoun, Rosicky, Gervinho; Van Persie

Norwich: Ruddy; Naughton, Ward, Ryan Bennett, Drury; Elliot Bennett, Howson, Johnson, Fox, Surman; Holt

Sports Mole says: 3-0
