Arsenal welcome an in form Crystal Palace side to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and they could have at least one new player in the door by then. It is not Arsene Wenger’s style to sign players in January normally, but the Gunners boss seems to be ignoring his regular rules this month such is the situation he and his side find themselves in.
With Alexis Sanchez looking set to join Manchester United, Henrikh Mkhitaryan appears to be heading the other way in a straight player swap. The Armenian’s former Borussia Dortmund teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also set to switch to North London. If either, or both face Palace, it will increase the chances of a home win significantly. Roy Hodgson has worked wonders at Selhurst Park, but this should be beyond even him.

From seven defeats in the opening seven games, Crystal Palace looked dead and buried but they’ve come back strong since, with only two defeats since the end of October and one in 12 games. That one did come at home to Arsenal just after Christmas, which could have an impact on this game but with Wilfred Zaha in their side, the Eagles are soaring.
CORAL HAVE YOU COVERED
Arsenal are in the midst of a really tough spell, having lost at Bournemouth, without Sanchez, last week and been knocked out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest. All that said, though, they have only once at home in the Premier League this season.
Hodgson has no fresh injury concerns to contend with for the trip to the Emirates Stadium.
Aaron Ramsey has returned to the Gunners side, who will be trying to do all they can to get both Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang over the line this week.
