Three duels that must be watched as Arsenal take a tricky trip to Selhurst Park
Arsenal’s top four dreams are faint. Arsene Wenger is suffering from widespread criticism from an increasingly angry fan base and two of their star players are flirting with the idea of leaving the club this summer.
A Monday night game under the lights at a raucous Selhurst Park is the typical match that the Gunners would stutter in, now they face an in-form Sam Allardyce side determined to upset the odds.
Palace have leapt away from the risks of relegation, but could still be sucked back into the fight with a challenging fixture list. Allardyce has seen his side defend like we have come to expect from his teams, with Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke providing the offensive punch.
After a weekend of Premier League football without shock, the Eagles will be eyeing up a surprise victory. Arsenal, meanwhile, are in must-win territory and will be well aware that a slip up here could spell the end for their season.
