    Monday night @ 8pm, live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.

    Two teams full off confidence after some decent performances and results, despite their league positions not quite reflecting it. Think this should be a good, open, attacking game.

    Team really picks itself at the moment:

    Guaita
    Ward Guehi Andersen Mitchell
    Gallagher Milivojevic McArthur
    Olise Edouard Zaha​

    COYP :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Maybe from you guys! Expecting more of the same from Arteta and Arsenal, controlling low xG based football.

    Yes I expect the George Graham esque football to continue and it will work against Palace. 1-0 to the Arsenal chants will be revived soon!
    My prediction:

    Arsenal 1 Palace 0

    Think we'll try and take the game to you so it could be end-to-end, especially if the likes of Saka, ESR, Auba, Zaha, Olise and Edouard are on the pitch.

    Wouldn't have thought Paddy will be going that adventurous at the Emirates though?

    Pretty sure one of Olise or Schlupp will start out wide along with Zaha and Edouard after their goals vs Leicester. Fans won't be happy if Ayew blags his way in again.

    Ben White getting stick for the "outrageous" revelation than as a footballer he doesn't go home and watch endless games on TV..



    I mean he certainly won't be the first to do that - quite a few high profile players aren't necessarily the biggest football fans generally who'd watch any game going.

    Not really surprising considering he grew up watching Guy Butters and Gary Dicker.

    Never understood people who are bothered by people addressing them with shortened versions of their name.

    They should call him Bob Marley.

    Expecting the following:

    Ramsdale
    Tomiyasu White Gabriel Tierney
    Partey
    Odegaard ESR
    Pepe Aubameyang Saka

    Maybe Pepe for Lokonga but I think being at home against a team we 'should' be beating, Arteta may look to be a bit positive. We've got a real chance to build a little momentum. We play twice before anyone else plays again now and two wins sees us move up to 4th with Liverpool playing United, Brighton playing City and West Ham playing Spurs next weekend.

    Expecting a very warm welcome for Patrick Vieira as well.

    I’ve got Saka as captain for tonight, a 5 - 4 victory for Palace, Saka with 4 goals will do. Thanks.

    Tonight's programme cover. Nice.

    Not sure I've ever said this before facing Arsenal away but I'll be really disappointed if we don't take at least a point tonight.

    That front five is full of quality but I think we can give their midfield and backline serious problems with our pressing. Wilfried always enjoys playing at the Emirates as well.

    No Zaha and Olise/Schlupp on the bench.

    Almost all optimism gone, but you never know... :cry:
