Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Crystal Palace, Partey and Smith Rowe start

Arsenal are scheduled to host Crystal Palace tonight. The Gunners are currently on a three-match winning streak in the Premier League and they can jump into the top half of the standings with a victory against Roy Hodgson's side.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Lineup:

Bernd Leno has been the Gunners' undisputed goalkeeper for the Premier League this term and he is expected to start in the London derby.

In the defence, no changes are expected, Gabriel Magalhaes is back to full fitness after recovering from the coronavirus.

However, Mikel Arteta may stick with the combination of Rob Holding and Pablo Mari in the central defence after back-to-back clean sheets.

At right-back, Hector Bellerin is expected to start with Kieran Tierney on the opposite end of the central defenders.

In the midfield, Thomas Partey could return to partner Granit Xhaka for the first time since the start of December.

Further forward, Smith Rowe is set to feature in the number 10 slot. He has bagged two assists and one goal in his last four games.

Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are expected to start on the right and left wing respectively.

Alexandre Lacazette is an automatic choice upfront after registering four goals from his previous three Premier League games.

Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette
