Arsenal had a nightmare run leading up to the September international break, but they regrouped and returned with a determined heart, ready to reclaim their glory, which they did as they were unbeaten four games after that break heading into the current international break.
When the league resumes after the international break, Arteta will have the important task of ensuring that his team returns to winning ways in order to maintain their unbeaten run when they face Patrick Viera in the Monday Night Football match. With no new injury concerns and only Xhaka injured, Arteta will be spoiled for choice in his starting lineup. Arteta's strongest line-up for the Crystal Palace game could be as follows, based on events at Colney and on the international front.
Only Albert Sambi Lokonga, who started the Brighton game before the break, is likely to be dropped, with Nicolas Pepe taking his place. With Lokonga out, Partey is the lone defensive midfielder, while Odergaard and Emile Smith Rowe will be the playmakers in front of him.
What are your thoughts on the lineup above? Will it dominate the London derby against Crystal Palace on Monday night? Please leave your thoughts in the section below.
