- A preview of Arsenal's clash with Crystal Palace this weekend.
Arsenal will have another tough task this Sunday as Unai Emery and Co welcome Crystal Palace, one of the most dedicated giant-killers in the English Premier League. After knocking Italian giants Napoli out of the Europa League this midweek, Unai Emery's men are looking confident ahead of this Sunday's fixture.
With 66 points from 33 PL matches, Arsenal stands 4th on the league points table. The Gunners are one of the favourites to finish the season among the top four teams of the Premier League.
On the other hand, their fellow Londoners, Crystal Palace are in 13th place, as they have garnered 39 points from 34 appearances. Although the points margin between these two is 27, Roy Hodgson's men have the ability to challenge the Gunners.
When they met last time on 28 October 2018, the match concluded with a 2-2 scoreline. This time, if Palace manages to earn a draw, it could break Arsenal's rhythm, as only five matches remain to end the 2018-19 season.
Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, and Danny Welbeck are all out as long-term absentees for the North London side. Aaron Ramsey is a doubt ahead of this weekend's fixture, as the Welsh midfield maestro was substituted off against Napoli due to a hamstring issue. Sokratis Papastathopoulos will miss the game through suspension.
Suspensions: Sokratis Papastathopoulos
Injuries: Hector Bellerin (out), Rob Holding (out), Danny Welbeck (out), Aaron Ramsey (doubtful).
As for the visitors, star players like Mamadou Sakho, James Tomkins, and Jeffrey Schlupp are going to miss the game against Arsenal. There is no suspension in Palace's team, whereas Cheikhou Kouyaté and Andros Townsend are doubtful ahead of the journey to the Emirates Stadium.
