Dimitar Berbatov states his prediction for Norwich v Arsenal
Spurs legend Dimitar Berbatov is backing Arsenal to beat Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday
Dimitar Berbatov is backing Freddie Ljungberg to start his interim reign at Arsenal with a 2-1 victory at Norwich City on Sunday.
The Gunners legend was appointed as Arsenal’s interim manager following Unai Emery’s dismissal on Friday morning ahead of their trip to Carrow Road.
The Spanish head coach was sacked after a 2-1 loss to German side Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League at The Emirates on Thursday night.
Arsenal are on a seven-game winless run, which has hampered their progress in all competitions over the past couple of months.
The Gunners haven’t won a Premier League game on the road since a 1-0 win over Newcastle United in their season opener.
Norwich City ended their own winless run with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park last weekend.
Former Spurs striker Berbatov is backing Arsenal to secure a victory at the promoted side on Sunday afternoon.
“Freddie Ljungberg won’t have a lot of time to implement his style and change the way Arsenal play ahead of this game but they need to get wins and they have to get a reaction,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“It has been so long since they have won a match in the Premier League, so they need that reaction and this is a good opportunity to do that against Norwich.”
Arsenal have gone without a win for seven games in domestic cup competitions for the first time since 1992.
The Gunners have only managed to collect 18 points from their opening 13 games, which is their worst-ever start to a Premier League season.
The north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term after Unai Emery took over the reins from Arsene Wenger in May 2018.
