Crystal Palace v Arsenal: Predicted line up
Arsenal head to Crystal Palace on Monday night in yet another must win game. At this stage, they are all must win.
After Wednesday’s impressive win against West Ham, I would expect very little to change.
Aaron Ramsey may come in for Mohamed Elneny and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may come in for Theo Walcott, but if I had to bet I would say we see an unchanged 11.
Goalkeeper Matt Macey was recalled from loan at Luton as goalkeeper cover. Perhaps suggesting that Petr Cech and David Ospina’s injuries are worse than first feared.
Laurent Koscielny missed out once again but there was some good news as Arsene Wenger announced the injury was not as serious as first feared.
Manchester City won to open up a seven point gap to fourth yesterday, but Arsenal have two games in hand. Fourth place looked all but gone not too long ago but a few strong performances and we could be right back in things. Liverpool are in third but are struggling without Sadio Mane. Don’t be surprised to see them drop points down the stretch.
It is going to take a big push to rescue this season, but the team can build on Wednesday’s performance here as we move towards the FA Cup semi-final and the last few games of the season.
