Arsenal will be looking to put some pressure on the top two when they take on Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech was surprisingly left on the bench for the 3-3 draw at West Ham but Wenger has no excuse not to recall his fit-again number one this weekend.
Defence: I think we’ll also see Wenger make a change at the back as the defence was badly exposed by West Ham last week with Andy Carroll causing havoc in the air. Palace are also strong in the air with Emmanuel Adebayor and Connor Wickham so I think Per Mertesacker will get a recall to combat their aerial threat.
Gabriel is the man most likely to make way as Laurent Koscielny is almost certain to retain his place at the back while Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal should retain their places in the full-back positions.
Midfield: Aaron Ramsey is available again after making a substitute appearance off the bench last week and I think we might see the Welshman start alongside Francis Coquelin in midfield on Sunday with Mohamed Elneny given a breather.
Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky are set to continue their comebacks with another appearance for the under-21’s on Monday but this game comes too soon so they remain unavailable along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla.
Attack: Alex Iwobi put in another excellent performance against West Ham so it would be extremely harsh to leave him out. Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud haven’t done enough to force their way in to the side so I think we’ll see the same front four that has started the last four games with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez also supporting Danny Welbeck up top.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
