The Gunners are four points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester City and go into the game in good form following three straight wins in the Premier League.
An impressive Arsenal side have dispatched Leeds and Sunderland in recent days, growing hopes inside Emirates Stadium that Mikel Arteta is putting together a youthful outfit with serious Champions League potential.
Norwich are next up and Dean Smith will be out to end a run of three consecutive defeats without scoring after previously starting well.
However, the Canaries have a poor record against their opponents with their last two home wins over Arsenal coming in 2012 and 1984, the latter of which also arrived on Boxing Day.
