By Dominic Toner
Arsenal have made no changes to their starting XI for the Premier League games against Crystal Palace on Monday night.
The Gunners travel to Selhurst Park for a league encounter and will be looking to boost their hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top-four this season.
Arsene Wenger has decided to make no alterations to his side from the team that beat West Ham 3-0 in their last game.
Arsenal’s third-choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has retained his place in goal, with experienced options Petr Cech and David Ospina both sidelined.
The 24-year-old kept a clean sheet against the Hammers and will hope to make the most of his chance.

Wenger’s side will go level on points with Liverpool if they win their three games in hand and the race for the top-four is set to go down to the wire.
