Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Predicted XI and Preview

AT THE BACK

Petr Cech in goal. The 34 year-old finally picked up a clean sheet on Boxing Day. His first since a 0-0 draw with Middlesborough on October 22.

Nacho Monreal comes in for the injured Gibbs. The Spaniard will hopefully be rejuvenated after being dropped against West Brom. Laurent Koscielny will probably continue to partner Gabriel for another game, though Mustafi is the ideal choice.

At right-back will be Hector Bellerin. Expect the youngster to trouble Martin Kelly all afternoon.
