We don't think Arsenal will keep a clean sheet against Norwich

We don't think Arsenal will keep a clean sheet against Norwich

Arsenal v Norwich (DJ)

The Gunners defence has been their weakest link this season and the 20 goals conceded at home is the worst among the top eight clubs in the section.

This is an area Norwich can exploit and despite a weary return of just one win in their last 16 Premier League outings, they did manage to score three at the Emirates in the corresponding fixture last season.

It is hard to see anything other than a Gunners home win but I would not bank on it being accompanied by a clean sheet.

Everton v QPR (OB)

Some would argue that any chance of QPR remaining in the top flight beyond this season ended with their 1-1 draw with Wigan last weekend and although this is likely, Harry Redknapp's side will not be throwing in the towel just yet.

So long as it is mathematically possible, the R's will be doing everything in their power to give themselves a shot of staying up, no matter how slim. With nothing to lose, coupled with the fact they have netted an average of two goals in their last five games, there is a good case to suggest they can continue this form.

As for Everton, there is no chance they will be leaving anything left in the dressing room for the rest of the season, with them still in contention for Champions League qualification spot. Their recent league form is good too, with four wins in their last five games at Goodison. During this run, they have scored an impressive 11 times.

A home win is to be expected, but there is reason enough to suggest QPR and most likely Loic Remy (four in last five) can find the net.

Southend v Bristol Rovers (NH)

This battle between 12th and 11th in League Two isn't one that will get too many pulses racing but it does fit nicely into our selection.

Southend last three league games have seen both teams score and Wednesday night's 4-2 defeat at Rochdale was a contest for goal fans to relish.

Rovers have been incredibly impressive since John Ward took over from Mark McGhee and in their last three games there have been a couple of matches full of goals.

The 4-1 loss at Bradford and 4-2 victory over Dagenham show both sides of the Pirates coin. This match makes it in.
