Matchday 2 of the 2023/24 premier league season comes to a close with London clubs, Crystal Palace and Arsenal facing off at the Selhurst Park for a round of points to add to their campaign.
Arsenal will be looking to build on their opening weekend struggle versus Nottingham Forest, while Crystal Palace will want to continue on their fine form from last week under Roy Hodgson.
With the Gunners still on course to challenge Manchester City again this term, Mikel Arteta’s team will go into the away leg wary of coming out of the game with anything less than 3 points.
Palace on the other hand will see this game as one to build on as the season gradually leads to the critical part of the campaign where every team will be eyeing for goals to fight for.
For Palace, that eye will be on the European spots or a top 10 finish, which makes this game all to fight for if they hope to take any advantage of Arsenal’s slow start to the campaign.
Here goes the confirmed lineup for both teams;
