North London giants Arsenal will bounce back from the disappointing defeat to Premier League newcomers Sheffield United when they face city rivals Crystal Palace later this weekend according to one of their former players.
Ex-Celtic and Arsenal striker Charlie Nicholas is a pundit with Sky Sports and the former Scottish international tipped the Gunners to bounce back into reckoning on the Premier League stage in his column with the British media channel.
Arsenal were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by newly promoted side Sheffield United in their league clash on Monday night with summer signing Lys Moussett getting the only goal of the game in the first half.
According to Charlie Nicholas, Arsenal will bounce back from that Sheffield United loss with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Arsenal lost the corresponding fixture last season as Crystal Palace deflated their top four hopes at the end of last season.
The Gunners were beaten 3-2 at home to the Eagles in their penultimate league game at the Emirates Stadium.
That result came back to haunt the Gunners as they failed to qualify for the Champions League for this season.
Crystal Palace have already beaten Manchester United and West Ham United away from home this season in the Premier League.
The Eagles are one of the best teams on the road.
