Arsenal and Crystal Palace are gearing up for their 23rd meeting in the Premier League era. Both fixtures last season ended in a draw, with a 1-1 scoreline at Selhurst Park following a 2-2 draw at the Emirates.
The Gunners expect to have Gabriel Magalhaes and midfielder Thomas Partey available for the visit of Palace.
Magalhaes has returned from a period in isolation after testing positive for Covid-19, while Partey has recovered from a thigh injury.
Gabriel Martinelli suffered an ankle injury in the warm-up ahead of Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Newcastle and there had been fears he could face a long spell on the sidelines.
However, a scan has revealed no serious damage, the club said via their website.
“To reinforce all the things that we have improved on, the results that we are having recently.
“And I think we will know much more in the next two games.”
What time does Arsenal vs Crystal Palace kick-off?
The Premier League clash kicks off at 8pm GMT on Thursday, January 14.
