In flying-form under newly appointed head-coach Unai Emery, Arsenal make a short trip to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Gunners have not lost a single game in all competitions since 18th of August and are hoping to continue their brilliant run of form. The Unai Emery revolution has been phenomenal as the Gunners would rack up a dozen successive wins in all competitions if they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are still searching for their first home victory. The Eagles have netted only five goals this season and are on a terrible run this season. Out of the 11 Premier League games, Palace have won just one and are yet to score a goal at the Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Team news:
For Palace, one key absence will be their main striker Christian Benteke, who is currently out with a knee injury. Besides Benteke, other major missings will be Joel Ward and Scott Dann. However, forward Alexander Sorloth and midfielder Max Meyer are both expected to be back in contention.
Peter Cech is fit, but the veteran was still not selected in the squad to face Sporting Lisbon in their Thursday night Europa League clash. Cech was Emery’s preferred no. 1 before his injury. Arsenal will also want to have either of their left-backs, Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal, back in the starting eleven after both of them missed the game against Sporting Lisbon with hamstring problems. Ainsley Maitland-Niles (leg) and Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) have started training but it is highly unlikely that they will be rushed.
