Team News: Arsenal
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Granit Xhaka (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has to currently contend with reduced team options. Eberechi Eze (Achilles tendon problems) and Nathan Ferguson (Achilles tendon surgery) are those who can’t be considered.
We’ve got the feeling that Arsenal look set to score at least once when they meet Crystal Palace, who might well find it difficult to get a goal of their own.
We reckon that it will be a decent 2-0 victory for Arsenal by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
