THE TEAM NEWS

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Crystal Palace were knocked out of the FA Cup by Derby as Roy Hodgson opted to make several changes to protect against further injuries.
  • Luka Milivojevic picked up a red card in that loss to Derby and faces a three-game ban after his appeal to the FA was unsuccessful.
  • Wilfried Zaha should come back in despite transfer speculation but Palace must contend with numerous other injury concerns.

Predicted line-up (4-5-1): Guaita; Kelly, Tomkins, Cahill, Riedewald; Meyer, Kouyate, McCarthy, McArthur, Zaha; Ayew

Unavailable: Ward (Injured), Van Aanholt (Injured), Schlupp (Injured), Townsend (Injured), Dann (Injured), Sakho (Injured), Benteke (Injured), Milivojevic (Suspended)

Doubtful: Camarasa (Injured)

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal played Manchester United off the park in their last Premier League match and will hope for more of the same against Crystal Palace.
  • The Gunners were far from convincing in the first half of their FA Cup game against Leeds but were much-improved in the second half.
  • Arteta is likely to name a similar side to the one that beat Man Utd but Reiss Nelson could come in after his winner against Leeds.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, David Luiz, Kolasinac; Guendouzi, Xhaka; Nelson, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Unavailable: Tierney (Injured), Chambers (Injured), Bellerin (Injured)

Doubtful: Aubameyang (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Crystal Palace are in the midst of a big injury crisis and they could be down to the bare bones as they welcome Arsenal. The Gunners have shown some promising signs under new boss Mikel Arteta and they are capable of improving yet again to come away from Selhurst Park with all three points.
