Arsenal need a win to stay in touch with the top four of the Premier League table when we take on Crystal Palace at the Emirates this afternoon.

Unai Emery has handed Kieran Tierney his full Premier League debut as the Scottish international starts at left-back ahead of Sead Kolasinac – who’s on the bench.

Calum Chambers starts at right-back with Hector Bellerin on the bench while Sokratis comes in alongside David Luiz in the middle of the back four. Granit Xhaka is partnered by Matteo Guendouzi and Dani Ceballos in the Arsenal midfield with Lucas Torreira among the substitutes.

Alexandre Lacazette keeps his place in the Arsenal attack as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is recalled after being rested on Thursday night. Nicolas Pepe should be in confident mood after his heroics in the Europa League and he joins Laca and Auba in attack.

These are the teams:

Arsenal

Leno; Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Tierney; Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ceballos; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Subs: Martinez, Bellerin, Holding, Kolasinac, Torreira, Martinelli

Crystal Palace

Hennessey; Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, Van Aanholt; Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Kouyate, Zaha; Ayew

Subs: Henderson, Dann, Meyer, Schlupp, Benteke, McCarthy, Kelly
