Arsenal take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off and we desperately need to come away with all three points.

Mikel Arteta has recalled Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he was rested for the FA Cup win over Leeds United on Monday night. Bernd Leno also returns in goal with Emi Martinez making way.

Lucas Torreira comes back into the midfield alongside Granit Xhaka while Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts at right-back with Sokratis moving back into the middle of defence alongside David Luiz.

Mesut Ozil keeps his place in the attacking midfield department while Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe also start in attack so it’s the same starting eleven that faced Man Utd.

These are the line-ups:


Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Torreira, Ozil, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Subs: Martinez, Holding, Nelson, Willock, Guendouzi, Martinelli, Saka

Crystal Palace

Guaita, Kelly, Tomkins, Cahill, Riedewald, Meyer, Kouyate, McCarthy,  McArthur, Ayew, Zaha

Subs: Hennessey, Dann, Tosun, Wickham, Woods, Kirby, Keut
