Arsenal will travel to Selhurst Park to take on the struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday lunch time, looking to consolidate their top position in the Premier League.
The Gunners are enjoying the top spot in the league after amassing 19 points thus far. And who would have thought that, especially after losing the opening game against Aston Villa at home? However, they are heading into this match on the back of shock 2-1 defeat at the Emirates against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in the midweek.
While, their home form may not be far from perfect, the away form is envy for all the top teams in Europe. Since their defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season in March, they’re yet to lose an away game – the unbeaten streak runs to 13 games in all competitions.
Wenger will be looking to make few changes from the side that faced Dortmund in the midweek. In the defence, there could be opportunities for skipper Vermaelen and Nacho Monreal. Palace have scored only 6 goals while conceded 17 so far so Wenger can afford to experiment a bit with his team for this match. Midfielder Flamini, who missed the last match, is fit again to play while Jack Wilshere will have a fitness test so probably he will miss out. This could be the possible line-up for Arsenal:
