EPL: Arsenal Confirm Starting Line Up vs Crystal Palace Revealed

Arsenal have a recent poor record against London rivals Crystal Palace as the two teams prepare to meet for the second time in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners didn’t beat Crystal Palace in three meetings in the league under former manager Unai Emery including the last game which saw the two teams share the points in October.

Arsenal raced into a two-goa lead under ten minutes through David Luiz and Sokratis Papasthathopoulos at home before the Eagles fought back through a Luka Milivojevic penalty in the first half before James McArthur completed the comeback in the second half through Jordan Ayew.

Luka Milivojevic would be sorely missed by Crystal Palace most likely as the Serbian international is suspended for the game after his red card against Derby County of the English Championship.

Centre referee Michael Oliver used the monitors to change his decision from yellow card to red card for Luka Milivojevic and Crystal Palace were rebuffed when they appealed that red card.

Crystal Palace were beaten 1-0 at home by Derby County who sealed passage into the FA Cup fourth round as a result.

Arsenal XI vs Crystal Palace (4-3-3): Bernd Leno; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Sead Kolasinac; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil; Nicholas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
