After a good second-half performance against Leeds in the FA Cup on Monday night, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be hoping his team can bring that energy and work rate with them to Selhurst Park this weekend.
The Gunners will be facing a Crystal Palace side who have won just once in their last seven games in all competitions so they should be confident of getting a result on Saturday.
Hector Bellerin (hamstring) is a doubt for the game against the Eagles, while Calum Chambers (knee) and Kieran Tierney (shoulder) are both out of contention.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson has an injury crisis at the moment, which is not helping results on the pitch. Wilfried Zaha is expected to play after being rested for the FA Cup defeat to Derby.
However, there are ten other players sidelined due to injury. Max Meyer and Jairo Riedewald both have knocks and Christian Benteke is a major doubt due to a muscular problem.
Mamadou Sakho (hamstring), Patric van Aanholt (thigh), Scott Dann (calf), Joel Ward (knee), Victor Camarasa (calf), Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend (both muscular) are all unavailable. On top of that, Luka Milivojevic is suspended for the game.
The bookmakers have Arsenal as favourites with Unibet pricing them at 22/25 to win. A draw is 3/1 with Bet365 while a Palace victory is currently 16/5 at Betfair.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to Arsenal
