Comments
The Gunners are currently sixth in the Premier League table and will be seeking to keep pace with the top four in a crucial clash at Selhurst Park

Calum Chambers has been handed his first Premier League start of the season as Arsenal take in a London derby with Crystal Palace.

The 22-year-old comes in for the injured Nacho Monreal as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger reverts back to the 3-4-3 formation which had featured towards the back end of last season and much of the current campaign.

Jack Wilshere and Granit Xhaka make up the central midfield partnership while the attacking triumvirate of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette continue upfront.

Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace side welcome back Christian Benteke from suspension to form another exciting attacking trio alongside Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend.

Arsenal team: Cech, Koscielny, Mustafi, Chambers, Bellerin, Wilshere, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette.

Subs: Ospina, Walcott, Holding, Iwobi, Welbeck, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin.

Crystal Palace team: Speroni, Kelly, Tomkins, Dann, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Loftus-Cheek, Townsend, Zaha, Benteke

Subs: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Fosu-Mensah, McArthur, Puncheon, Riedewald, Sako.
