Arsenal face Crystal Palace tonight in the English Premier League with victory a must if they’re to maintain their challenge to finish in the top four.
With the rest of the league having played their fixtures this mid-week, Arsenal find themselves four points adrift of fourth placed Liverpool and three behind Tottenham Hotspur, who sit in fifth.
Arsene Wenger has named his starting eleven, returning to a formation that has a back three and two attacking wing-backs.

It’s an interesting selection from the Arsenal boss, having not played Sead Kolasinac for the previous three fixtures, also bringing Calum Chambers back into the defensive line.
Supporters are delighted to see Kolasinac return. While his form dipped before being dropped, he has shown glimpses of real quality already so far this season and fans are hoping that the time spent on the bench will see him recapture those kind of performances.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his inclusion this evening…
I like this. Hopefully the break has given Kolasinac a lift and he comes back to form. https://t.co/1DLHsNU3xI
