We desperately need to pick up all three points as Arsenal take on Crystal Palace at the Emirates this afternoon.

Unsurprisingly, there is no Sanchez in the squad while Welbeck and Ramsey are also not involved due to injury and illness so we are down to the bare bones.

Thankfully Koscielny, Monreal and Ozil all return while Elneny starts in midfield but we have very little attacking options on the bench with only youngsters Nelson and Nketiah to call upon.

These are the lines-ups:


Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Wilshere, Elneny, Xhaka, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacaztte.

Subs: Mertesacker, Ospina, Chambers, Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Nelson, Nketiah

Crystal Palace

Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Kelly, Fosu-Mensah, Milivojevic, Cabaye, McArthur, Zaha, Sako, Benteke

Subs: Speroni, Ward, Townsend, Lee, Souare, KaiKai, Riedewald
