With both teams having won their first game, Crystal Palace host Arsenal with the hope of building on last week’s win away from home on Monday night.
The Eagles will be buoyed by the news that star player Olise is going to stay at the club, while Arteta’s Arsenal will be determined to make it two wins from two as they have their sights set on the Premier League title once again.
It was at Selhurst Park last season where the Gunners got their title bid up and running and Mikel Arteta has certainly strengthened since.
Crystal Palace have won three of their 23 league home matches against Arsenal, drawing eight and losing 12, with two of those victories coming in the Premier League.
Arsenal were victorious in both top-flight meetings with Crystal Palace last season, winning 2-0 at Selhurst Park and 4-1 at the Emirates.
Palace will miss the services of Will Hughes and summer signing Matheus Franca along with Nathan Ferguson and Malcolm Ebiowei. Tyrick Mitchell is fit to play, while Jefferson Lerma should make his home debut. Olise may be but he remains out of action due to injury.
The Gunners will be without Jurrien Timber after he picked up an ACL injury on his League debut against Forest, while Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Elneny are not expected to feature. David Raya, meanwhile, could make his debut and Oleksandr Zinchenko is due to return “very soon”.
Crystal Palace XI: Johnstone (GK), Ward, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Schlupp, Lerma, Eze, Doucouré, Ayew, Édouard
Arsenal XI: Ramsdale (GK), White, Timber, Saliba, Partey, Ødegaard, Rice, Havertz, Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
Palace will always be a hard nut to crack at Selhurst but Arsenal has the firepower to breeze past any team in the Premier League.
