Wilshere and Walcott set to return

Arsenal should have Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott available for tomorrow afternoons visit of Norwich City in the Premier League.

Wilshere has missed the Gunners last four games with an ankle injury, while Walcott has not featured since last month’s victory at Swansea City.

However, Per Mertesaker will miss out through suspension, while last week’s hero Tomas Rosicky is doubtful after injuring his hamstring.

Arsene Wenger’s men will rise to third in the table if they take all three points, and could tighten their grip on a Champions League qualification place by beating Everton on Tuesday; twenty-four hours before fellow top four hopefuls Chelsea play their next league game.

Tottenham Hotspur aren’t in action until they host second place Manchester City a week on Sunday.

Carrow Road was the setting for Arsenal’s first away league defeat of the season in the reverse of Saturday’s fixture back in October.

Grant Holt’s 19th minute strike was enough to give Norwich all three points, and leave Arsenal in ninth place after eight games.

However, seven wins in the last nine league games has dampened any fears the clubs run of fifteen consecutive seasons in Europe’s top competition is set to come to an end.
