The 2022-23 Premier League season gets underway this weekend as Arsenal make the short trip across the capital to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. It's a London derby to lift the curtain on the new campaign - and both will be keen to throw down a marker.
Mikel Arteta's side are out to throw down a gauntlet after a breathtaking pre-season campaign that has conjured memories of the Arsene Wenger glory days - but they'll have to get the better of a Gunners legend in Patrick Vieira, out to dodge a sophomore slump in charge of the Eagles.
Ahead of the game, GOAL has the details of how to watch on TV, stream online, team news and more.

If not quite the top-half revival some envisioned when Patrick Vieira's reign clocked just two league losses in his first dozen games, Crystal Palace's performance under the Frenchman offered promising signs for life after Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park.
A tough summer window, marked by the return of loanee Conor Gallagher to Chelsea, has been alleviated by the arrival of USMNT international Chris Richards from Bayern Munich and England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone from West Brom - but it is going to take something special for them to improve upon last term.
Predicted Crystal Palace starting XI: Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Schlupp, Doucoure, Eze; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha.
|Goalkeepers||Ramsdale, Rúnarsson, Turner, Hein|
|Defenders||Bellerín, Tierney, White, Gabriel, Saliba, Holding, Soares, Tomiyasu, Marí, Zinchenko, Torreira|

|Jesus, Martinelli, Nketiah, Pépé, Nelson, Marquinhos|
After missing out on Europe in 2021, Arsenal's revival to top-four challengers last term proved one of the stories of the season, as faith in Mikel Arteta paid off again to steer the Gunners back to continental football - even if they ultimately fell short of the Champions League to bitter rivals Tottenham.
What's more, they have had a transfer window to remember too, with the loss of Alexandre Lacazette offset by the arrival of Gabriel Jesus, plus the capture of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Matt Turner - and with only a single pre-season loss under their belt, they might just enter this campaign poised to disrupt the systems.
Predicted Arsenal starting XI: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.
