FULL TIME: Norwich City 1-1 Arsenal

It's all a bit frantic in the end with Norwich desperately trying to clear the ball. Bellerin floats a cross in that the home side eventually scoop clear and the referee blows the full time whistle.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, not for the first time since coming on, whips an excellent ball intot he six yard area but Campbell is unable to get anything on it and another great chance goes.

Norwich close to craving Arsenal open! Brady cuts through the Gunners' backline with a sublime pass that finds Grabban running in behind. The angle is too tight for the shot but instead he pings it across the face of goal where Gabriel is well placed to make a crucial clearance.

Norwich come close again! From that corner, Bennett knocks the ball down to Hoswon but he can't keep his effort down, lifting it over the bar. That's his last contribution of game with Nathan Redmond coming onto replace him. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for Arsenal, meanwhile, replacing Ramsey.

Cech with an excellent save! Olsson lifts an inswinger into the box and it appears to come off the back of Gabriel's head. Whoever got the final touch, they looked to have planted it in the bottom corner, only for Cech to produce a brilliant reaction save and force a corner.

Hector Bellerin is given the space to get into the box and tries the shot on from a tight angle, but fires a wayward effort into the side netting.

And Sanchez's afternoon is over with Joel Campbell coming onto replace him. Arsenal have already lost Laurent Koscielny today.

Uh oh. Alexis Sanchez, who complained of a tight hamstring midweek, pulls up and looks like he's done some further damage to it. He doesn't look able to continue and Joel Campbell is warming up.

Ozil clips one over the wall but it's a fairly poor effort that doesn't beat anyone.

Arsenal now have a free kick in a dangerous area after Ramsey is clipped by O'Neil. The Norwich skipper is shown a yellow.

Santi Cazorla is shown a yellow card for taking a tumble.

Half chance for Arsena as Sanchez is allowed to creep into the box and scoop a ball up towards Giroud. Ruddy comes to claim ahead of the striker and doesn't really get there, but there are enough Norwich men back to clear the danger.

Arsenal haven't been able to start this half with that intricate passing that tore through Norwich in the first. There is definitely a more scrappy feel to the contest now.

Breathe easy, Arsenal fans, Cazorla is back on and looks okay to continue.

We are back underway at Carrow Road and alresdy Arsenal have a problem. Santi Cazorla, who was sensational in the first half for the most part, is down in a heap after a collision with O'Neil.

Half time: Norwich City 1-1 Arsenal

What a chance for Norwich to go ahead! Arsenal are sleeping at the back as Wisdom drills a beauty of a cross towards the back post where Hoolahan is free, but he can't keep his first time effort on target.

Norwich are level! Robbie Brady slips a neat through ball for Grabban whose snuck inside Gabriel a little to easily. With the goal at his mercey, he coolly slots the ball underneath Cech to wipe clear Arsenal's advantage.

Mesut Ozil chases down a loose ball but can't stop himself as the ball rolls out of play and stacks it over a huddle of photographers much to the delight of many in attendance.

Arsenal are firmly in control at the moment but Norwich may feel they should have been given a penalty. Hoolahan chests the ball down in the area but, as graceful as ever, Flamini crashes into the back of him but Jonathan Moss waves play on.

More neat stuff from Arsenal, as Ozil and Ramsey exchanges a series of passes before the latter turns and shoots, only to see his shot deflected wide. Norwich are getting plently behind the ball when Arsenal come forward, but the Gunners are simply picking their way through each time.

After making a crucial stop a few moment ago, John Ruddy throws the ball out and immediately puts his team in danger. Sanchez is first to react and picks up the ball before sliding a pass through for Ozil inside the left of the box. Ruddy comes racing out, but Ozil is there first and finds the back of the net with a perfect dink over the onrushing goalkeeper.

Another neat move, with Cazorla central to it again, cuts through Norwich with the ball eventually laid off to Ramsey on the edge of the D, but the Wales international skies his effort.

Great save from Ruddy! Tremendous work from Cazorla who shimmies past a couple of challenges, demonstrating brilliant balance, before shifting the ball to his right to find Sanchez. The Chilean brings the ball forward just inside the edge of the box before lashing a vicious effort on goal, but Ruddy is equal to it.

Cazorla concedes possession in his own half, allowing Brady to race onto the ball. The Irishman is free on goal if he can sneak past Per Meresacker, but the big German stands up and makes a vital tackle.

Monreal causes problems again down the left, picking up Ozil's excellent lofted ball before putting a cross into the near post. Giroud gets there first, but doesn't get the right contact on the ball and misses the target.

Chance for Arsenal as they swarm forward, shifting the ball wide to Monreal on the left who drills the ball across goal. Ozil gets some contact on it, enough to move it towards goal, but Bassong is well placed to make an important block.

Olsson tries not once but twice to spring past Ramsey down the inside left channel and is clipped by the Welshman the second time around. Brady whips a cracking free kick into the dangerzone but Gabriel can clear.

Koscielny won't be able to continue and the Gunners' suffer another injury blow. Gabriel will come on for the Frenchman.

Arsenal have a problem with Laurent Koscielny hobbling off to the sidelines to receive treatment.

Norwich flicks the ball onto the his right foot and with no Norwich players closing him down, takes on the shot from 25 yards out. It whistles wide of the post, however.

Arsenal venture forward for the first time for Cazorla who launches an ambitious cross field ball for Sanchez to run onto but even the Chile international isn't quick enough to reach that one.

And we are off and underway at Carrow Road.

As expected, Alexis Sanchez starts this afternoon despite suffering from a tight hamstring after the Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Norwich team to face Arsenal: Wisdom, Bennett, Bassong, Olsson; Howson, Dorrans, O'Neil (c), Brady; Hoolahan; Grabban

Subs: Martin, Mbokani, Jerome, Mulumbu, Redmond, Odjidja

BREAKING: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is fit enough for the Arsenal bench with Mathieu Flamini starting in that holding midfield role.

Arsenal team to face Norwich:

A win at Carrow Road this afternoon will lift Arsenal back to joint top of the Premier League with Manchester City. Hoping to help them to that will be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is fit again after that hamstring injury suffered in the 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in October. He joins Aaron Ramsey, who made his return midweek.

There is still the issue of that Francis Coquelin-shaped hole in midfield, however. Mathieu Flamini filled it midweek against Dinamo Zagreb, but Arsene Wenger has said he could also use Calum Chambers in that role.

Alexis Sanchez is expected to start despite Wenger revealing the Chile international suffered a slight hamstring problem in that win at the Emirates on Tuesday.

I will assess [Sanchez's hamstring injury] later. Spontaneously it is not the right time to rest him. He has another big hurdle to get across today and hopefully he can be successful.

"Everyone who played Tuesday is available. Maybe Chamberlain should be back in the squad [or Norwich] – Theo Walcott is not for Sunday, he needs to go through a few steps.

For Norwich City, meanwhile, skipper Russell Martin is available again after missing last weekend's defeat to Chelsea. Alex Tettey is still ruled out win a groin problem.
