Arsenal can extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a win over Crystal Palace this afternoon.
The Gunners have the chance to move eight points clear of Manchester City as their title rivals play in the FA Cup this weekend.
Mikel Arteta’s side have won their last five games in the league and will be hopeful of making it six as they face struggling opponents.
But Arsenal did suffer Europa League heartbreak on Thursday night as they crashed out of the competition on penalties to Sporting Lisbon.
Meanwhile, Palace have failed to score in all of their last four outings and they have not won since December in all competitions.
And on Friday, they made the decision to axe Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira amid their growing relegation concerns.
