The recent resurgence of Arsenal under new manager Mikel Arteta will be tested when the Gunners take a short trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in the London Derby for the early game on Saturday in the Premier League.

Arsenal have won their last two games in all competitions as Mikel Arteta starts to turn the fortunes of the Gunners around after a difficult first half of the season.

The Gunners won back-to-back games for the first time in three months and they have not won two games in a row in the Premier League in six months.

Since the opening two league fixtures against Newcastle United and Burnley, Arsenal are yet to repeat the feat as they have struggled under both Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg who came in as a caretaker manager shortly after former Sevilla and Valencia manager Unai Emery was sacked.

The Gunners could make it two league wins in a row against Crystal Palace whom they have not beaten in three Premier League meetings since the 4-1 win at home in January 2018.

Crystal Palace are injury hit as manager Roy Hodgson could be without 12 players.

According to Squawka, Arsenal will be forced to a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.
