Arsenal will hope to continue their newly-found momentum when they face London rivals Crystal Palace away at Selhurst Park this Saturday afternoon.
New Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has instilled quite a lot of positive things in the team, and wins in the last two games against Manchester United in the league and Leeds United in the FA Cup is evidence of that.
The aim should be to continue on that positive note and get three points at Selhurst Park in order to remain in contention for a possible top-four finish.
Palace won’t be easy opponents though, as Arsenal have found out plenty of times in recent seasons.
In terms of team news, Hector Bellerin and Dani Ceballos are doubts for this game, while Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers are long-term absentees.
Here’s how we think Arteta may line his XI up for this game:
GK - Bernd Leno
The German international was rested for the FA Cup game. He should be back in goal for this game.
RB - Ainsley Maitland-Niles
The full-back should be back in this position against Palace.
CB - Sokratis
After doing a good job at right-back against Leeds, Sokratis should be back in his natural position in central defence.
CB - David Luiz
The Brazilian has been in good form since the arrival of Arteta as manager. He should continue to start games in defence.
LB - Sead Kolasinac
The Bosnian has been in decent form since returning from injury. For now, he is Arsenal’s number one left-back.
CM - Granit Xhaka
Xhaka has been another player rejuvenated under Arteta. He is probably one of the first names on the team sheet these days.
CM - Lucas Torreira
After getting a rest from the Leeds game, Torreira should be back partnering Xhaka in midfield against Palace.
RW - Nicolas Pepe
Played the last few minutes on Monday and should be fresh to start on Saturday and terrorise the Palace defenders.
CAM - Mesut Ozil
Ozil’s form has gathered loads of applause from the Emirates’ faithful in the past few weeks. He would aim to continue on that run by doing well against Crystal Palace this weekend.
LW - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
After getting a much-needed rest from the Leeds game, captain Aubameyang should be back leading the team out this Saturday.
ST - Alexandre Lacazette
Despite not scoring on Monday, the Frenchman was very effective leading the line. He would aim to break his recent drought though, by starting and scoring against Roy Hodgson’s men.
