Crystal Palace v Arsenal Confirmed Team News & Predicted Line-up

Arsenal take on London rivals Crystal Palace in today’s Premier League clash at Selhurst Park, with both sides hoping to maintain their 100% starts to the new campaign.

The Gunners clinched victory at home to Nottingham Forest in a game which didn’t see us pull out of second gear, while today’s opponents were impressive in dispatching with Sheffield United, limiting the Blades to just one shot on target in their own stadium.

Unfortunately we will be without summer signing Jurien Timber after he was unable to make it through a single half of Premier League football, with the defender now expected to miss much of his debut season in north London, which means his role at left-back will need filling. Gabriel Jesus and Mo Elneny remain sidelined also as confirmed by, while Oleksandr Zinchenko is also continuing to work his way back to full fitness. David Raya completed his move and will likely take up a place on our bench.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

Partey White Saliba Tomiyasu
Odegaard Rice Havertz
Saka Nketiah Martinelli

Will Hughes, Malcolm Ebiowei and Michael Olise will be missing for the home side.

While today’s opposition is likely to prove a tougher nut to crack, I expect our side to clinch all three points, with plenty of firepower in our side likely to prove the difference.

If Zinchenko isn’t back to 100% yet, who do you think should get the nod at LB?

  1. I certainly wouldn’t play Partey at right back, stick him in midfield where he belongs. We wouldn’t put Ramsdale up top so we shouldn’t be going down the route of square pegs in round holes as we have a big enough squad to have players playing where they should but its just an opinion

      1. I don’t know. What made us so effective last season was the inverted-fullback tactic that gave us an advantage in midfield and was crucial for our playing from the back tactic. When Zinchenko was injured like against West Hame away, our ability to play from the back suffered and we did badly. We need an inverted fullback since we don’t have a plan B for playing from the back.
        I would play Jorginho instead of Eddie, with Havartz as a striker.

        1. What you are essentially saying is that we weren’t flexible at all and could only play 1 way which was a copy of City.

          So yes I 100% agree that was our downfall.

          1. We do not have another option at the moment so we have to stick with it, and thinker within those limits.

      2. I wouldn’t have Partey at the back I think alongside Rice the midfield is solid enough for opponents.

  2. I dont like this line up at all and fear an upset could be on the cards Why Partey at full back No Tierney in the squad Should play Martinelli though the middle and Trossard out wide I hope Arteta not made big mistake with his choice tonight I like Arteta but question his selection tonight
