The Gunners will be hoping to bounce back from their shock exit in the Europa League where penalties largely dominated Sporting CP to hope to go all the way.

With Manchester City out of action due to FA Cup commitments, Arsenal can open up an eight-point gap in the league with a win at the Emirates Stadium.

Traveling across the capital, the Palace side are looking for a new manager as well as important wins, having secured the services of Patrick Vieira on Friday.

A winless start to 2023 has left the Eagles looking nervously over their shoulders and a morale-boosting performance would be just the ticket for a club facing serious questions over its short-term future at this level.

However, fans watching from home will be disappointed to know this Arsenal v Crystal Palace will not be broadcast live on TV in the UK today.

Despite being broadcast on a Sunday, the game was originally penciled in for the 3pm slot on Saturday – for which there is a live football television blackout across the country.

Although it was moved, broadcasters used the allocation of matches for the weekend with the FA Cup dominating the airwaves.

However, fans can still tune in for minute-by-minute updates from the Emirates via Standard Sport’s Matchday Blog, featuring Simon Collings on the spot to provide expert analysis!
