To be played on Sunday 17th April 2016 at 15:00. Venue: Emirates Stadium, London

Odds: Arsenal 1/3, Draw 4/1, C. Palace 9/1

Arsenal welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium this weekend as the Gunners looks to put some pressure on the Premier League’s top two – Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently six points behind their North London rivals and a full 13 points behind the Foxes with just six matches remaining.

As for Palace, they eased the pressure with a 1-0 victory against Norwich City and a 0-0 draw with Everton in the last week and they will head to the Emirates knowing they now have a healthy advantage over the relegation candidates.

In early team news, Arsenal are without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky, while Mathieu Flamini is a minor doubt due to a knock.

As for Palace, their manager Alan Pardew is without Brede Hangeland, James McArthur and Marouane Chamakh while Dwight Gayle is rated at 50/50 to feature.
