Latest Arsenal Team News And Predicted Starting XI vs Crystal Palace

May 18, 2021 admin 0

Arsenal play crystal palace on Wednesday in their penultimate game of the season having edged Chelsea last week at Stamford bridge.

Arsenal set up a 3-Man defence in their last game against the blues but their defense could see few changes against Palace.

Calum Chambers, since returning from Injury has started all games playing as the right full-back and he is expected to keep his place.

David Luiz injury has hampered Gabriel’s playing time as the Brazilian is always at his best whenever he plays alongside Luiz.

With nothing to lose, He should start alongside Rob Holding at the centre back position.

Arguably Arsenal’s most consistent player this season Granit Xhaka is set to be on the sidelines again as he has not fully recovered from his groin Injury.

Thomas Partey will need a partner in that position and Ceballos or Elneny can fill in but Arteta will opt for Elneny.

Another big name player that was an unused substitute against Chelsea is Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe has been impressive this season but just couldn’t start some games due to some reasons. Arteta will likely start him tomorrow. With Saka on the left.

Aubameyang has been underwhelming this season, his inability to score has been a major factor in the gunner woes.

As He continues to get back to full fitness mentally and physically, Lacazette will replace him in the Starting XI.

Arsenal predicted XI vs Palace:

Predicted Starting Line-up: Leno; Gabriel, Holding, Tierney, Calum Chambers; Elneny, Thomas Partey, Smith Rowe; Nicolas Pepe, Buakyo Saka, Lacazette.
