Arsenal will look to push further up the Premier League table when they play hosts to Crystal Palace tonight (Thursday).
Although they are still stuck in the lower half of the league table, a win could potentially help the Gunners breach into the top-half, and perhaps even get level on points with Chelsea.
It could also extend their winning run to five games in all competition as Mikel Arteta and his men are coming on the back of a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the FA Cup.
However, they surely cannot afford a defeat as the likes of Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers are breathing down their necks.
Speaking of Palace, they are heading into this game on the back of a miserable run of form that saw them secure just one win in their last seven competitive outings.
During this period, the Eagles have tasted three defeats, including a 7-0 thumping at the hands of defending champions, Liverpool.
Palace lost their most recent outing against Wolves, bowing out of the FA Cup on the weekend.
And ahead of yet another tough challenge on Thursday, Roy Hodgson’s will be aiming at least for a point as they look to stay afloat in mid-table.
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Villar, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita, Ward, Tomkins, Kouyate, Mitchell, Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Eze, Zaha, Benteke
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
