The final match of the weekend in the Premier League takes place on Monday night with Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal at Selhurst Park. Roy Hodgson is back once more for another campaign with the Eagles and they made a good start to 2023/24 with a 1-0 win at Sheffield United on the opening weekend.

Arsenal, meanwhile, battled to a 2-1 home victory over Nottingham Forest, with Mikel Arteta’s side hoping to go one better this term after finishing runners-up to Man City in May.

The Gunners have added the likes of Declan Rice and Kai Havertz to their squad over the summer, while Palace lost key winger Wilf Zaha – but have brought in Matheus Franca from Flamengo in their big-money addition so far. Follow all the live action below as Crystal Palace host Arsenal and see the latest odds for the game here.


Crystal Palace vs Arsenal – latest

And a look back at what has happened so far for the Gunners, too.


OUT – Granit Xhaka to Leverkusen, £12m; Matt Turner to Forest, £7m; Auston Trusty to Sheffield United, £4m; Pablo Mari to Monza, £3m; Marquinhos to Nantes, loan; Ainsley Maitland-Niles to Lyon, free.

IN – Declan Rice from West Ham, £105m; Kai Havertz from Chelsea, £65m; Jurrien Timber from Ajax, £35m; David Raya from Brentford, loan with option.

For Mikel Arteta it seems to be all about a midfield revamp, with two of tonight’s starting three being new signings. One down side is Timber already being sidelined through injury, however.

Here’s a look back at the summer transfer work from both clubs…so far, at least.


OUT – Jack Butland to Rangers, free; Wilf Zaha to Galatasaray, free; Luka Milivojevic to Shabab Al-Ahli, free; James McArthur, retired

IN – Jefferson Lerma from Bournemouth, free; Matheus Franca from Flamengo, £26m inc. add-ons.

Brazilian teenager Franca is obviously the big attraction for the Selhurst Park fans so far – but the new No11 is currently sidelined through injury.

The opening weekend:

Arsenal 2-1 Nottingham Forest

The Gunners looked in good shape early on in the match and first-half strikes from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka – the latter an absolute worldie – put them well in control by the break.

Forest hit back through Taiwo Awoniyi to make it a nervous finish, but three home points remained on the cards throughout in truth.

The opening weekend:

Sheffield United 0-1 Crystal Palace

A strike early into the second half from Odsonne Edouard gave the Eagles the victory on the first weekend of the campaign. Roy Hodgson’s team certainly dominated but the cutting edge was missing at times, but three points arrived regardless.

Palace vs Arsenal: Confirmed line-ups

Confirmed team news!

Palace offer no real surprises – but it’s worth noting Cheick Doucoure is in the team, amid rumours of a transfer to Liverpool before the window shuts.

Arsenal bring Takehiro Tomiyasu into the side to replace the injured Jurrien Timber but otherwise there’s no surprises there either – new goalkeeper arrival David Raya is on the bench.

Palace XI: Johnstone, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Doucoure, Lerma, Eze, Schlupp, Edouard, Ayew

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Partey, White, Saliba, Tomiyasu, Rice, Havertz, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah

How to watch Crystal Palace v Arsenal in Premier League

After a narrow win over Nottingham Forest on the opening day, Arsenal will be looking for a second successive victory as they aim to push Manchester City for the title again.

Arsenal have won their last two matches against Crystal Palace, but with Roy Hodgson in charge again, Palace fans will be hoping for a repeat of their 3-0 win over the Gunners in April 2022.

After shelling out for the likes of now-injured Jurriën Timber and Declan Rice in the summer, Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can find their footing and although it’s only early in the season, if they want to challenge for the top spot, they cannot afford any slip-ups.

It will be the Eagles’ first home game of the campaign after winning at recently-promoted Sheffield United on the opening weekend.
