Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is fit to start while Lucas Torreira partner Granit Xhaka in midfield as Arsenal get set to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Mikel Arteta has named an unchanged starting lineup from the last time Arsenal were in action in the Premier League, as the Gunners prepare to lock horns with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Bernd Leno starts in goal, replacing Emiliano Martinez, who was deployed between the sticks in the FA Cup tie against Leeds United. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is Arsenal’s right-back, with Sead Kolasinac starting on the opposite flank. Sokratis and David Luiz partner up at the heart of the Arsenal defence.

In midfield, Lucas Torreira has been given the nod to partner former Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka in the double pivot, with Matteo Guendouzi an option on the bench. The big news, though, is that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has recovered from illness to start against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal captain Aubameyang will be deployed on the left flank, with Mesut Ozil reprising the no. 10 role once again. Nicolas Pepe starts on the right wing, with Alexandre Lacazette spearheading the attack against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal Starting XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Torreira, Xhaka, Ozil, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
