The outfit begins and Jesus on the hosts’ bench as Saliba misses, 19-year-old Whitworth in Palace goal
Arsenal can extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a win over Crystal Palace this afternoon.
The Gunners are lucky to move eight points clear of Manchester City as their title rivals play in the FA Cup this weekend.
Mikel Arteta’s side have won their last five league games and hope to make it six against struggling opponents.
But Arsenal suffered Europa League heartbreak on Thursday night as they pulled out of the competition on penalties against Sporting Lisbon.
Meanwhile, Palace have failed to score in their last four outings and they haven’t won since December in all competitions.
And on Friday they made the decision to eliminate Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira amid growing relegation concerns.
- The Premier League match at the Emirates will start at 2 p.m.
