Arsenal VS Crystal Palace
Saturday (20/01/2018)
16:00 (WAT)
The Gunners are well off the pace in the race for a Premier League top-four finish after last weekend's shock defeat at Bournemouth, with Arsene Wenger's men now eight points off the Champions League qualification spots - and set to lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.

Crystal Palace have fully recovered from a nightmare start to the season as they sit 12th in the table, and head to north London off the back of two straight League wins.

Team news
Arsene Wenger insists Sanchez could feature despite the Arsenal manager saying a move to United is "likely" to happen.

Sanchez was left out at Bournemouth as his future remains in doubt, but Wenger could bring him back against the Eagles after he trained with the first team on Friday morning as a potential transfer to Old Trafford rumbles on.

Mesut Ozil is available following a knee problem and defenders Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal (both ankle) are also pushing to return but Olivier Giroud (hamstring) is not in contention while Santi Cazorla (Achilles) is a long-term absentee.


Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Mertesacker, Holding, Mustafi, Koscielny, Chambers, Monreal, Mavropanos, Debuchy, Bellerin, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Wilshere, Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Ozil, Iwobi, Sanchez, Welbeck, Lacazette.

Hodgson has a number of injury problems to contend with. Rubewn Loftus-Cheek is a doubt, while Mamadou Sakho (calf), Andros Townsend and Jeffrey Schlupp (both ankle) are all out.

Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann are both out for the season with serious knee injuries.
Predicted line-ups

Arsenal XI: Cech, Chambers, Mustafi, Holding, Bellerin, Wilshere, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette

Palace XI: Hennessey, Fosu-Mensah, Kelly, Tomkins, Van Aanholt, Zaha, Milivojevic, Riedewald, McArthur, Benteke, Sako
