Teams: Arsenal v Crystal Palace: Ozil out, Perez starts

By on January 1, 2017

Arsenal simply have to pick up all three points when we welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates this afternoon.

Mesut Ozil misses out through illness so Lucas Perez gets a rare start in attack alongside Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi and Olivier Giroud.

Shkodran Mustafi is fit but is only named on the bench while Nacho Monreal comes in for Kieran Gibbs at left-back. Mohamed Elneny also gets a rare start.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Cech; Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal; Elneny, Xhaka; Iwobi, Sanchez, Lucas; Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Coquelin, Reine-Adelaide, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain

Crystal Palace

Hennessey; Kelly, Dann, Tomkins, Ward; Cabaye, Flamini, Puncheon; Townsend, Zaha; Benteke.

Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Husin, Mutch, Sako, Lee, Campbell.
