In what has been a stellar season for Arsenal, the buzz was quelled on Thursday night as Sporting came from a goal behind with a wonder strike from Pedro Goncalves to win on penalties at the Emirates and knock Mikel Arteta’s men out of the Europa League. The sole focus now shifts exclusively to the league.

The Gunners will want to bounce back from that European defeat this Sunday in style, particularly with their title rivals, Manchester City, not playing a league game until after the international break. Pep Guardiola’s men are engaged in an FA Cup tie against Fulham this weekend, so Arsenal could enter the spring hiatus eight points clear at the summit.

For Crystal Palace, they will want the international break to come sooner rather than later so they can regroup following the dismissal of Patrick Vieira on Friday morning. The ex-Arsenal midfielder oversaw a tremendous maiden campaign in 2021/22, but this season has been poles apart.

The Eagles may look fairly comfortable in 12th, but the league standings are somewhat deceptive. Incredibly, just three points separates Bournemouth in 18th from Palace in 12th, while Leeds (19th) and Southampton (20th) are only a point and two points behind The Cherries respectively. It’s a nine-way tussle in the fight for safety.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace match stats

Vicente Guaita could be in for a busy afternoon in north London. Arteta’s men have had 447 shots this season, more than any other club, including Man City (444), so the Spaniard will have his work cut out for him. But that is something he has been used to. In fact, the 36-year-old has made the fourth-most saves of any goalkeeper in the Premier League this season (84).

Gabriel Martinelli is Arsenal’s highest goalscorer in the Premier League this season with 12 goals, including five in his last five appearances. He has been regularly set up by midfield wizard Martin Odegaard, who has created 49 chances from open play this term, a stat bettered only by Kevin De Bruyne (52) and Bruno Fernandes (61).
