The Canaries have been breached 17 times in their opening seven games of the season to leave them in the relegation zone.
In contrast, a win could send the Gunners as high as second in the table.
Vito Mannone is expected to continue in goal for the visitors following injuries to Wojciech Szczesny and Lukas Fabianksi, but Theo Walcott will miss out after he picked up a rib injury while on England duty against San Marino last Friday.
Kierna Gibbs has also been ruled out for Arsenal with a thigh problem.
Meanwhile, Steven Whitaker is nearing a comeback for Norwich after suffering knee ligament damage in pre-season.
Norwich: Ruddy; R Martin, Bassong, Garrido, Barnett, Johnson; Howson, Hoolahan, E Bennett; Holt, Morison
Arsenal: Mannone; Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Jenkinson, Koscielny; Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Podolski; Giroud, Gervinho
Sports Mole says: 0-3
