Manager Arsene Wenger has challenged Arsenal to come out all guns blazing against Norwich tomorrow as they look to maintain their charge towards the top four.
Arsenal have built up a head of steam, with seven wins in the last nine Premier League matches as well as a memorable away victory at Bayern Munich as they bowed out of Europe.
Should Wenger's men beat the Canaries they would leapfrog both Chelsea and Tottenham into third place as neither of their London rivals are in league action this weekend because of the FA Cup semi-finals.
Arsenal raced out of the blocks in their last home match against bottom club Reading with an early goal, before going on to win 4-1.
Wenger expects more of the same tomorrow: 'Once we are in front, the teams who usually defend against us have to come out and that gives us space to develop our game even better. That shows you that when we start our games in a positive way, we can dominate,' Wenger said.
