Predicted Arsenal XI to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League

Arsenal have been in an incredible run of form this season and have won their last 11 games across all competitions.

The Gunners moved to the top of their group in the Europa League with a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon on Thursday. And they must aim to come away with all three points when they travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have struggled to get their season up and running and are yet to score a goal at home. It is expected to be a rather straightforward fixture for Arsenal and few will bet against them making it twelve in a row.

Nacho Monreal is set to return to contention for Sunday’s clash after missing out the last two games due to a hamstring injury. Sead Kolasinac will be unavailable for selection.

Centre-back Laurent Koscielny might not be forced into action since his return from a long-term Achilles injury. Petr Cech has recovered from his hamstring problem and will be available for selection on Sunday.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Unai Emery

Predicted XI

Bernd Leno (GK)

The new signing has been in good form and he should keep his place even though Petr Cech is likely to be fit for Sunday’s game.

Hector Bellerin (RB)

He has picked up four assists so far but he needs to be more compact at the back.

Shkodran Mustafi (CB)

Rob Holding was lucky to escape with a handball against Leicester City and squandered possession on a couple of occasions in the Europa League tie. Mustafi has been pretty solid in the recent fixtures and should start on Sunday.

Sokratis (CB)

Looked solid as ever on his return from injury and should start on Sunday.

Nacho Monreal (LB)

The veteran missed the last couple of games due to a hamstring issue but is likely to start on Sunday.

Granit Xhaka (CDM)

The Swiss international did a decent job in an unfamiliar left-back position but he should return to his usual position in central midfield.

Lucas Torreira (CDM)

What a signing he has proven to be! His passing and tenacity in the midfield are invaluable to Arsenal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (RW)

The former Borussia Dortmund man has been in good form and must start on Sunday.

Mesut Ozil (CAM)

The Wizard of Oz set the Emirates on fire with a world-class performance against Leicester and there is no way that Emery can bench him after that.

Alex Iwobi (LW)

He seems to be fulfilling his potential this season and should aim to continue his impressive run of form.

Alexandre Lacazette (ST)

The Frenchman has been a key figure for Arsenal up front and he should aim to get on the scoresheet once again on Sunday.
