Crystal Palace will welcome Arsenal at Selhurst Park on Monday night as both teams look to go all out for the three points. The Eagles managed to earn a 4-0 win over Everton in the FA Cup before the international break. Similarly, the Gunners secured a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa last month. Hence, we can expect an entertaining contest between the two sides as they try to get the better of each other in the London derby.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics
Patrick Viera will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and might instruct his players to sit deep and defend well before catching the Arsenal defenders off-guard on the counter.
Mikel Arteta could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could ask his men to dominate the ball and create enough chances to win this derby.
Michael Olise and Wilfried Zaha will miss this game because of injuries. Otherwise, Viera has no fresh injury concerns ahead of this derby.
Crystal Palace Predicted XI
Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Kouyate, Hughes; Eze, Mateta, Edouard
Aaron Ramsdale is a major doubt for this game as he is recovering from a hip injury. However, Gabriel Martinelli is expected to return after missing the last game due to an illness.
Arsenal Predicted XI
Leno; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette
Jean-Philippe Mateta and Odsonne Edouard will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Eagles in the injury absence of Wilfried Zaha. Vicente Guaita also needs to be at the top of his game if Palace are to keep a clean sheet this Monday night.
The defensive performance of Gabriel and Ben White could go a long way in determining when the Gunners will be able to emerge victorious in this London derby.
Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette will be expected to put their pace to good use in the final third.
