Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will likely recall Ainsley Maitland-Niles to the starting line up against Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon. With Hector Bellerin still sidelined with a hamstring problem, the 22-year-old is expected to come back into the side.
It will allow Sokratis to move back centrally alongside David Luiz, with Rob Holding, who didn’t play well against Leeds, almost certain to drop out of the eleven.
Lucas Torreira was rested for the FA Cup fixture but the Uruguayan international has been revitalised under Arteta, and he will probably replace Matteo Guendouzi in midfield, playing alongside Granit Xhaka.
Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was also given the night off on Monday night and the forward will most likely come into the side at the expense of Reiss Nelson, despite the winger scoring the winner versus Leeds.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Palace:
Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Torreira, Ozil, Xhaka, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
