Arsenal will host Crystal Palace in the Premier League London derby on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium. Let’s take a close look at Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Preview.
Arsenal’s chance to win the UEFA Europa League title was lost to Sporting Lisbon in a heart-breaking 5-3 penalty shootout. They will seek to win this game and further strengthen their lead at the top.
The Eagles have played 12 games in 2023 and are winless. Paddy McCarthy, the manager of the Under-21 team, will take charge of the Palace after Patrick Vieira was fired last week.
Takehiro Tomiyasu (knee) and William Saliba (back) were both injured for Arsenal on Thursday night during the first half, and Arteta is worried that the former may have suffered another significant problem.
Gabriel Jesus played 45 minutes on Thursday, his first start since the World Cup, but it now appears likely that he will be benched as Leandro Trossard might return.
Albert Sambi Lokonga, an Arsenal loanee who is unable to play against his parent club, will be missed by interim Palace boss McCarthy, but the loss could be eased by the return from illness of Will Hughes.
Vicente Guaita and Sam Johnstone both have hamstring injuries, thus 19-year-old academy product Joe Whitworth might start in goal.

Arsenal 3-0 Crystal Palace
Palace is on a long losing streak, and goal-scoring is a major concern for them. On their last four trips to the Emirates, they have lost 3 and drawn 1. Arteta named several first-team players on the bench in midweek and has a wealth of choices for change. Do not expect any surprises at Emirates as Arsenal look to extend their lead at the top.
