The Emirates will hope their Gunners can go back atop the Premier League table as they host a resurgent Crystal Palace squad at 11am ET on NBCSN and live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.
With Manchester City taking on Chelsea tomorrow, Arsenal could potentially take advantage of any Blues slip-up, but they’ll have to get through a Tony Pulis side which has two wins in its last three matches.
They will get Tomas Rosicky back from surgery on his broken nose to boost their midfield options off the bench.
Deadline Day acquisition Wayne Hennessey joins the Palace bench straight away, arriving from Wolverhampton. They will also be boosted by the return of Kagisho Dikgacoi, who has featured just once in Palace’s last seven Premier League matches with a recurring calf problem.
Arsenal – Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski; Giroud.
Bench – Fabianski, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Rosicky, Zelalem, Gnabry, Bendtner.
Crystal Palace - Speroni; Ward, Gabbidon, Delaney, Parr; Bolasie, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Puncheon; Chamakh, Jerome.
Bench – Hennessey, Mariappa, McCarthy, Bannan, Guedioura, Gayle, Wilbraham.
