Lacazette dropped, Ceballos starts: 4-3-3 Predicted team vs C. Palace
Arsenal will be eager to get another win on Saturday after their encouraging opening to the year 2020 which has seen them defeat Manchester United and Leeds at home.
Following an extremely poor run which had seen them record just one win in their last 15 games across all competitions, Arsenal managed to open the new year by beating rivals Manchester United 2-0 last week.
It was a game which saw Mikel Arteta enjoy the reward of selecting Nicolas Pepe as the Ivorian took full advantage of a rare start by terrorizing the Red Devils’ defence.
Ahead of the clash with Crystal Palace this weekend, Arteta will have the chance to make a few changes with the likes of Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli now back in the squad.
Considering the fact that the Gunners have been involved in a lot of fixtures over the festive period, this might be the right time to hand a couple of players the rest they need as another big month in the campaign nears.
Maitland-Niles – Sokratis – Luiz – Kolasinac
Xhaka – Torreira – Ceballos
Pepe – Aubameyang – Martinelli
