10′ Arsenal are winless in their last four Premier League matches against Crystal Palace (D3 L1), their longest winless run against the Eagles in the top-flight.
8′ The visitors have hardly touched the ball so far in the opening few minutes, it is all Arsenal so far, with every Palace player back behind the ball.
6′ Maitland-Niles does well down the left wing, getting past Aubameyang and he looks to whip a cross into the box for a teammate, but he gets it all wrong and it flies behind the Palace goal.
4′ Decent move by Arsenal, which sees Smith Rowe get deep into the Palace penalty area, but his cross into the six-yard box is too close to Guaita, who comfortably gathers.
3′ Palace are happily sitting deep and soaking up the early possession here by Arsenal, making sure they are back in their formation and not allowing the Gunners much time and space in midfield.
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is almost upon us, stay tuned for all the match action!
