Norwich City vs. Arsenal: Live Player Ratings

Barring a miraculous 17-goal-differential turnaround, Norwich City are likely playing their last Premier League match in the top flight at Carrow Road this year. 

The Canaries need to both beat Arsenal and have West Brom lose to Stoke all while making up for those 17 goals that stand between Norwich and West Brom in the goal-differential category. 

In short, down go Norwich. 

On the other hand, Arsenal are entering Championship Sunday in a rare spot of not needing any sort of results to go their way, already having clinched a fourth-place spot and Champions League football next year.

The Gunners will likely use the occasion to rest a few of their worn-down regulars for the all-important FA Cup final next Saturday while hoping to keep momentum on their side heading to Wembley. 

Norwich will simply be hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about in their Premier League swan song.

The match kicks off at 3 p.m. BST (10 p.m. ET).

Half-time analysis: 

Ruddy: Easily Norwich's best player—kept Arsenal scoreless with several fine stops. 

Martin: Beaten a few times on the right, not been able to push up much. 

Bennett: Not incredibly troubled in the back. 

Turner: Made a few clearances to thwart Arsenal's attack. 

Olsson: Didn't have to do much with most of Arsenal's attacks going through the middle. 

Tettey: Helped the Canaries control possession early. 

Snodgrass: Was lively in attack. 

Howson: Bullied some by Arsenal's midfield late. 

Johnson: Held his own for the most part. 

Redmond: Needs to get more involved in attack. 

Elmander: Somewhat anonymous as Norwich struggled to give him any service. 

Arsenal: 

Player Position H/T Rating F/T Rating
Fabianski GK  7  7
Jenkinson RB  5  8
Sagna CB  7  7
Koscielny CB  8  8
Gibbs LB  7  6
Arteta MF  6  6
Rosicky MF  7  6
Ramsey MF  7  9
Ozil MF  7  7
Podolski MF 8  7
Giroud F  6  6

Fabianski: Hardly troubled in the Pole's likely final Premier League match with Arsenal. 

Jenkinson: Struggled, as he has most of the season. 

Sagna: Assured performance playing out of position. 

Koscielny: Thwarted nearly every Norwich attack. 

Gibbs: Active in attack coming off of injury. 

Arteta: Smart on the ball, but mostly off the pace. 

Ramsey: Typical Ramsey-esque performance bossing the middle of the park. 

Rosicky: Found some holes in Norwich's defence. 

Ozil: Not able to fully assert himself, but had some decent moments. 

Podolski: Very active—even made a tackle on defence! 

Giroud: Did well to create space, but should have put Arsenal ahead.
