Predicted Crystal Palace and Arsenal line-ups

Selhurst Park

Here are the possible teams for the match between Crystal Palace and Arsenal this weekend.

To be played on Sunday 16th August 2015 at 13:30. Venue: Selhurst Park, London

Odds: C. Palace 17/4, Draw 3/1, Arsenal 3/4

Crystal Palace will be looking to pile on the misery for Arsenal this weekend, as Alan Pardew looks for his team to back up their opening day win in the Premier League last weekend against Norwich City.

Selhurst Park is a very intimidating place for any away side to visit and Pardew will guarantee that his team are ready to get stuck in physically, making it a very difficult occasion for the Gunners.

A fast and aggressive start for Palace has the ability to put Arsenal onto the back foot, creating a little more space for the side’s key players to be effective.

Arsene Wenger will want to see an instant response from his players and he’ll know that if his team can control the ball and resist getting drawn into a physical battle, they should have more than enough quality to win the game.

The Gunners have had a full week to work on any issues the Frenchman picked up on during the defeat against West Ham and the side should be much more difficult to break down and play against this weekend.
