On Sunday night, the Emirates welcomes Patrick Vieira’s men in hopes of further cementing their spot at the top of the league,

It looks like Arsenal will be gunning down all their machinery towards the Premier League after their shocking exit from UEFA Europa League in the midweek. Sporting CP got the better of the Londoners in the tiebreak by 5-3 after a 3-3 aggregate scoreline at the end of two legs. Although Arteta’s men have been phenomenal in the league, there is that air of uncertainty that things might go downhill as Manchester City have been chasing them down relentlessly. But as they welcome Crystal Palace, the Gunners can take pride in the fact that they have won eight of their nine London derbies in the Premier League this season (D1).

Crystal Palace on the other hand have had a woeful few weeks and are now involved in the relegation battle against all their ambitions. Although they sit at 12th in the table, they are just 3 points away from the dreaded relegation zone. Three consecutive solitary goal losses against Brighton, Manchester City and Aston Villa have handed them concerns regarding their status in the Premier League. But Crystal Palace have avoided defeat against Arsenal in each of their last four Premier League away meetings, with each of the last three ending level (W1).

Arsenal: Gabriel Martinelli

Crystal Palace: Wilfried Zaha

Zaha can play as a forward or as a winger, usually on the left where he can cut inside with his right foot.
