Possible Arsenal line- up To Play Against Crystal Palace – Podolski To Start?


After a disappointing draw against Southampton in midweek, Arsenal now host Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Sunday. The Gunners are currently second in the table, thanks to Manchester City’s 5-1 rout of Tottenham at White Hart Lane and Chelsea’s 0-0 draw against West Ham.

Arsene Wenger will have to reiterate that his side cannot ill afford to drop any further points in their quest for the title. The Gunners now host a Tony Pulis led Crystal Palace side whose resurgence in the past few weeks has been nothing short of utter brilliance. Crystal palace looked down and out at the start of the season having lost seven of their first eight matches under previous manager Ian Holloway, but Pulis has managed to pull the Eagles together.

Palace are now 4 points clear off the drop zone and stand at a respectable 14th place in the table just a point behind Swansea who are at 10th. So can Palace stop the rampaging Gunners or will Arsenal just steamroll their opposition? Here is Arsenal’s strongest possible line up.


Szczesny signs contract extension

As pretty much obvious, Wojciech Szczesny will start in goal to muster another clean sheet in front of the vociferous Gunners faithful. Arsenal have conceded quite a few goals in the past few encounters but as most of the Palace wins have been decided by the thinnest of margins, so it’s evident that Szczesny will not be under immense pressures on Sunday.
