Norwich City host Arsenal at Carrow Road for the final Premier League game of the season on Sunday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:25pm BST.


Norwich come into this fixture having confirmed their relegation from the Premier League following their goalless draw against Chelsea last weekend. The result coupled with Sunderland's victory over 17th placed West Bromwich Albion left them three points behind the Baggies.

Neil Adams' side are 18th in the league table with 33 points. The Canaries will hope to bid goodbye to top-flight football for at least another year in style by beating Arsenal in front of their supporters.

The Gunners were assured of a place in the top four after Everton suffered back-to-back defeats against Southampton and Manchester City. Arsene Wenger's side defeated West Brom, 1-0 in their last game at the Emirates this season courtesy of Olivier Giroud's solitary goal.

The north London club sit fourth with 76 points and Wenger will be hoping that his side can secure all three points and take the winning momentum into the FA Cup final on 17 May.

The Frenchman might consider resting some of his stellar players in a bid to keep them injury-free for the final.

What Managers Say

Neil Adams: "Even though we won't be playing the top flight, there's a duty to the supporters to go and put a performance on and win the game. Arsenal have obviously got a cup final the week after, but whatever team they send here is irrelevant to us. We have to go and show the same work ethic and quality of football that we showed in the second half against Liverpool in the last home game and the desire that we showed for 94 minutes at Stamford Bridge."

Arsene Wenger: "We go there to try to win the game. We want to finish on a high, we want to get 79 points and make it as tight as possible at the top. If you get to that level it shows you're ready to fight for the title again. From that basis we want to build on for next season and get over 80. Also, in preparing for the FA Cup final, it's important to feel that you play well in the game before."
