Crystal Palace have been handed a big blow following that key player Luka Milivojevic will miss the upcoming league game with Arsenal.

The Premier League meeting between Crystal Palace and Arsenal comes up this weekend and Serbian international Luka Milivojevic will miss the game due to suspension.

Luka Milivojevic was sent off during the game against Derby County from the English Championship in the third round of the FA Cup and will miss the Arsenal as a result despite the fact that it was a different competition.

Red cards from the FA Cup will also count in the Premier League.

The absence of Luka Milivojevic is a big boost for the Gunners as he has a good record against the team from North London.

The Serbian has scored five goals in six games against Arsenal including the goal that started the fightback when the two teams met in October.

He scored from the penalty spot in the first half after Calum Chambers had upended Wilfried Zaha in the box to halve the deficit for his team.

Crystal Palace had conceded two goals from David Luiz and Sokratis Papasthathopoulos until that point.

James McArthur scored the equaliser for the Eagles in the second half as the two teams shared the points.
