Arsenal will be looking to take another positive step in their Premier League title challenge this weekend as Mikel Arteta’s side welcome Crystal Palace to North London.
After the disappointment of bowing out of the Europa League on Thursday following a penalty shootout defeat to Sporting CP, Arteta will have little time to rally his troops.
The visitors have also endured a difficult week, with the club opting to sack Patrick Vieira after the Frenchman failed to win a Premier League game since the start of 2023. They are not expected to have appointed a replacement before the match at Emirates Stadium.
Here’s all the key information on the match including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups and betting odds.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace projected lineups
Arsenal’s Europa League exit to Sporting CP also brought about two fresh injury worries for Arteta with defensive pair Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba both expected to miss out this weekend.
Bukayo Saka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard will all come back in after starting on the bench in midweek, with Gabriel Jesus perhaps set to drop out of the starting XI.
Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale (GK) — White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Odegaard, Partey, Xhaka — Saka, Martinelli, Trossard
Arsenal subs: Turner (GK), Holding, Tierney, Nelson, Nwaneri, Smith Rowe, Vieira, Jorginho, Jesus
Palace’s injury list remains unchanged ahead of this match, with teenager Joseph Whitworth expected to remain in goal as Vicente Guaita is sidelined. Arsenal loanee Albert Sambi Lokonga is ineligible.
Crystal Palace starting XI (4-2-3-1): Whitworth (GK) — Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell — Doucoure, Ahamada — Olise, Eze, Zaha — Edouard
Crystal Palace subs: Goodman (GK), Ward, Tomkins, Riedewald, Richards, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Ayew, Mateta

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction, odds
Arsenal know they cannot afford to drop points at home in the final weeks of the title race as defending champions Manchester City look to chase them down, and they have lost just once at home in the Premier League in 2023.
Palace need a reaction if they are to avoid being sucked into deeper relegation danger, but this weekend may come too soon to break their winless streak.
Prediction: Arsenal to win 2-1
|Crystal Palace win||+1100||12/1||12.50||11.00||13.00|
|Over/Under 2.5 goals||-143 / +105||4/6, 11/10||1.70 / 2.15||1.69 / 2.09||1.73 / 2.17|
|Both teams to score Y/N||+135 / -196||5/4, 4/7||2.25 / 1.60||2.20 / 1.53||2.40 / 1.58|
