Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: LINEUPS and Preview

Making a real fist of their bid for Premier League survival under Tony Pulis, expect Crystal Palace to serve up another grittily determined display away to Arsenal here.

Santi Cazorla is in fine form having scored four goals in his last three games

But ultimately, the Eagles’ brave efforts can once again be predicted to materialise without reward, as was the case in their spirited recent showings away to both Tottenham and Manchester City. Only two Premier League sides have recorded fewer points on the road than Palace this season, whilst they are the division’s worst away side in terms of goalscoring, netting on just five occasions in 11 matches away from Selhurst Park. Their drawing of 11 seasonal blanks all told certainly doesn’t bode well against a Gunners side that have kept clean sheets in nine of their 16 league triumphs this term, and one that has a golden opportunity to return to the top-flight summit via the claiming of all three points here. Santi Cazorla could prove a value call to continue his impressive recent goalscoring form.
