Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believes his team is ready to play their first home game against Norwich City behind closed doors.
Although the Gunners have currently played four games in all competitions, they still have to play Premier League football in the Emirates since Project Restart.
Arteta believes, however, that the past few weeks have helped his players become familiar when they return to an empty emirate.
“We had two friendly games at home before we went to the Premier League and it was a really strange feeling, but hopefully it was too [the players] are used to it now.
“We know what to expect. We’ve done all the logs to make sure the players know exactly what to do and hopefully they can have fun at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow.”
Arteta also talked about fitness and injury concerns during the project restart.
He added: “We are only trying to make the best of it. It was a great learning process for me and the staff about the situation and the context in which we find ourselves.
“A lot of unexpected things have happened since I joined [and] We try to solve the situations as best as possible to help the players and the club go in the right direction.
“Some things that we cannot control and that we can control are just trying to make as many good decisions as possible.”
