Arsenal v Norwich City – HEAD TO HEAD, QUOTES
HEAD TO HEAD
Norwich’s last victory at Arsenal was on the opening day of the newly-formed Premier League in 1992. The Canaries fought back from 2-0 down with 21 minutes to go to win 4-2.
The Canaries are winless in six subsequent league visits to Arsenal (D2, L4).
Arsene Wenger: “We lost the championship at home against the lower teams, but we played at home in a very difficult climate.
“We have to realise that, away from home, we are championship winners. At home, against the smaller teams, we lost the league.
“This club does have special values though and one I’ve experienced over the years is to stick together and support the team. There’s no success without that.”
Alex Neil: “Is it a good time to play them because there is going to be a [fan] protest [against Arsenal]? Or are the players going to give the reaction that they expect? The bottom line is we have to go there with the intention of bringing something back, be it three points, which would be great, or a point. Whatever the case may be. We just want to go there and play as well as we can, and if we do that then we have a chance against them.”
