The Gunners managed to get back to winning ways after beating Sheffield United in the FA Cup at the weekend while the visitors missed out on a semi-final tie after taking Man United to extra-time.
But Arteta has warned his players they are more than capable even if they are bottom of the table.
He said: “A team that is fighting for relegation has an extra edge.
They know the difference between the Championship and the Premier League and they fought really hard to be where they are.
I’m expecting a fully committed team, they are brave the way they play.
They are team that if you let them play, they cause you problems and I am expecting a very honest team that is going to fight for their lives to try and give them a better chance in the next few weeks to stay in the Premier League.”
He added: “I will show them [Arsenal] what they [Norwich] are able to do when you give them time to play. It’s a very tricky team the way they play and I will make sure we recover first and are ready tomorrow to go again.”

Win, lose or draw?
Arsenal 2-1 Norwich City
Norwich will make it incredibly tough for Arsenal but the form they’ve discovered since switching to a back three will give Mikel Arteta great encouragement.
The Gunners are have more better balance in their play and finding ways to cause havoc down both flanks could be too much for Norwich to handle.
Who’s a good bet for 1st scorer?
Nicolas Pepe has been key for Arsenal since returning to the side.
Getting much more involved in games and becoming more unpredictable in the way he attacks, he’s really starting to come into his own under Mikel Arteta in the final third so he would be a safe bet for Arsenal’s first scorer.
Who’s on pens?
Nicolas Pepe stepped up at Bramall Lane to dispatch his second penalty of the campaign.
Even if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on the pitch, it doesn’t seem likely Pepe will be taken off penalty duty.
Will you keep a clean sheet?
Emi Martinez has been impressive since replacing Bernd Leno.
His concentration late in games has been key to Arsenal’s wins and his distribution from goal is a great weapon.
Despite this, Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki played especially well in the reverse fixture and should they do the same at the Emirates, a Norwich goal wouldn’t be too surprising.
Will the absence of fans help or hinder?
With this being Arsenal’s first home game of Project Restart it may be a slight hindrance.
Although they have played four competitive games behind closed doors, having that experience at home for the first time will be very strange.
