Norwich expect to have both midfielder Bradley Johnson (concussion) and defender Russell Martin (ankle) available.
Martin was forced to pull out of the Scotland squad for their friendly in Cyprus, but has recovered.
Centre-backs Zak Whitbread (hamstring) and Dani Ayala (knee) have resumed training, but defender Elliott Ward (knee) is no closer to a return while striker James Vaughan (knee) remains sidelined.
Arsenal will be without full-backs Kieran Gibbs (hernia) and Carl Jenkinson (back) at Norwich.
Midfielder Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) is also unavailable, but otherwise there were no fresh injury problems from the international break and striker Marouane Chamakh (knee) is in contention.
Abou Diaby (hamstring) is continuing his recovery, but Jack Wilshere and Bacary Sagna (both ankle) remain longer-term absentees.
