The official team sheet is in for Arsenal’s game against Crystal Palace and there aren’t many surprises from Wenger this time around.
The Gunners will look to take all three points from the game with the competition for the Champions League places heating up and with Liverpool taking on the Saints, we will have a great opportunity to consolidate our place in the top four.
Ospina is back in the squad after being rested for last week’s FA Cup game against Middlesbrough inspite of Szczesny’s assured performance under the bars last weekend. Mertesacker and Koscielny will resume their duties at the heart of the defence, while Chambers will start on the right and Monreal on the left.
Coquelin will continue to shield the defence with Ozil and Cazorla starting in front of the Frenchman. Sanchez, Welbeck and Giroud will provide the firepower up front. The bench is also super strong with Wilshere, who returns to full fitness and Walcott along side Rosicky, Gabriel and Gibbs.
It seems Wenger has gone all in for the game and it seems to be a right move considering the importance of the result on the points table and qualification scenario’s.
Arsenal Starting Line-up : Ospina, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Welbeck, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud.
Substitutes : Szczesny, Gibbs, Bellerin, Gabriel, Wilshere, Rosicky, Walcott
