Pepe and Chambers start, Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-3-3) to face Crystal Palace

Predicted Arsenal XI vs Crystal Palace

Arsenal will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they tackle Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Bernd Leno has been the first-choice goalkeeper for the top-flight duties and the German is expected to feature between the sticks against Roy Hodgson's side.

Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney made up the backline for the midweek European clash and it won't be a surprise, if Emery decides on a complete overhaul.

Despite the recent defeat at Sheffield United, Emery is likely to stick with the settled combination. David Luiz and Sokratis should make up the central defence with Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac on the right and left side of the backline.

In the centre of the park, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi are pretty much constants when it comes to the Premier League selection and the duo are expected to start.

Alongside the duo, Dani Ceballos may make his first start in three games. Joe Willock has started the past two matches in the attacking midfield role but he has been average and misplaced a number of passes in midweek.

In the frontline, Emery may go with his strongest combination possible with Alexandre Lacazette back to full fitness. Nicolas Pepe, who scored two splendid free-kicks in midweek, is expected to start on the right wing.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should slot into the opposite flank with Lacazette likely to lead the line. The trio have started just one game together in the Premier League this season.

Predicted Lineup (4-3-3): Bernd Leno, Calum Chambers, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, David Luiz, Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette
