Oleksandr Zinchenko in Arsenal training

Zinchenko to start? Arsenal team news and predicted XI vs Crystal Palace

Arsenal finally get to play their second Premier League fixture of the season on Monday night as they travel to Crystal Palace (8pm kick-off).

Mikel Arteta’s side opened their new season with a 2-1 success against Nottingham Forest on the opening weekend and will be looking to back that up with another victory at Selhurst Park.

Arsenal claimed a 2-0 win at Palace last season, with Gabriel Martinelli scoring early on and an own goal wrapping things up in the second half.

But Roy Hodgson’s side got their campaign off to a winning start last weekend, dominating new boys Sheffield United at Bramall Lane as they won 1-0 thanks to an Odsonne Edouard strike.

Ahead of Monday night’s game, here is the latest Arsenal team news and a predicted XI for the game.

Arsenal will be without Gabriel Jesus as he continues to recover from knee surgery, while Jurrien Timber also misses out after the serious knee injury he suffered against Nottingham Forest.

Kieran Tierney could come back into the squad after missing out on the opening weekend.
