Arsenal are due to play against Crystal Palace in a Premier League game at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners will be looking to win in order to add some impetus in what has been a frustrating season for them so far.
This will however be a big test for Arsenal. Palace enter the game in decent form as they are unbeaten in their past three league games, having won one and drawn two. The Gunners do have a decent record playing away against Palace as they have lost just two out of their previous 19 league encounters played away against the Eagles.
Arsenal’s form has improved since the sacking of Unai Emery as they are currently unbeaten in five games in all competitions. Should they manage to win Saturday’s game, it will mark the first time that they have won three games in all competitions in succession since September.
Mikel Arteta’s side will have to make do without the services of Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers, according to BBC. The report did however add that defender Hector Bellerin has resumed light training though he will miss Saturday’s game. The 24-year-old has only managed three Premier League appearances this season due to his battles with injury and it will be a major boost to the Gunners once he is available for selection again.
Arsenal will have to hope that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can continue his good away form. The Gabon international has notched eight out of the club’s 11 away league goals this campaign.
