Three Arsenal players who can hurt managerless Crystal Palace this weekend

Aaron Ramsey vs. Yaya Toure

Arsenal return to Barclays Premier League action this weekend for the first time in the 2014/15 season and Arsene Wenger will be hoping more of the same success on the trophy front that he experienced at the end of last term and the beginning of this one.

The Gunners host Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon and Wenger will be looking for his men to inflict some damage on a team they found hard to crack last season.

Palace were beaten, just about, by ten man Arsenal at Selhurst Park last season, while the Gunners were made to work hard in the reverse fixture later on in the season.

Arsenal will have been boosted by the departure of Tony Pulis yesterday, with the Crystal Palace manager abandoning his side on the eve of the new season as a result of a disagreement with the club’s hierarchy. Even so, Arsenal will need their best players to perform.
