How the Gunners could line-up at Selhurst Park…
Arsenal will be away at Crystal Palace this weekend in a Premier League fixture that could allow them to overtake their top four rivals.
This match-day could seriously impact which sides snap up the crucial Champions League places, with Southampton facing fellow top-four rivals Liverpool, United going on a tricky trip to Swansea, and West Ham taking on Spurs.
Arsene Wenger will know he needs to win this game to keep the pressure on, and therefore needs to pick the best side available.
Here’s how the Gunners should line up:
GK: David Ospina
Wojciech Szczesny was afforded a run out against Middlesbrough, with Wenger sticking to his policy of rotation in cups. The Arsenal boss still seems reluctant to give him any opportunity in the Premier League however, ever since the ‘shower smoking’ incident of New Years Day.
Ospina should, therefore, return to the starting XI against the Eagles.
RB: Calum Chambers
With Hector Bellerin a fitness doubt and Mathieu Debuchy still out with a dislocated shoulder, it’s likely Chambers will retain his starting place after doing so well against Middlesbrough.
