Crystal Palace team news

One decision in Patrick Vieira's first team selection of the season has been made for the Frenchman as both goalkeepers Jack Butland (hand) and summer signing Sam Johnstone (quad) are expected to be sidelined with injury, leaving Vicente Guaita between the posts.

The wily midfielder James McArthur pulled up with a hamstring problem towards the end of preseason while Michael Olise - no less tricky but more than a decade younger - is nursing a foot injury.

Arsenal team news vs Crystal Palace

Arsenal begin the new season with doubts lingering over four first-team players. The club's versatile new arrival Fabio Vieira has been able to remove the protective boot he wore during the club's preseason but is unlikely to make his competitive debut this weekend.

Fullbacks Takehiro Tomiyasu and Kieran Tierney both struggled for fitness during the final months of last season and have been unable to fully recover over the summer. Emile Smith Rowe is also a doubt with a groin injury.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal score prediction

A balmy Friday night away to another London club to open the season was the setting for Arsenal's ruinous curtain raiser against Brentford a year ago. While there may be some notable absentees, the Gunners have enjoyed a much more serene preseason this time around.

The same can't entirely be said for Palace who had their squad split in half for much of the summer with Vieira leading a tour to Singapore and Australia while his assistant Osian Roberts oversaw proceedings closer to home.

Any lack of cohesion these preparations may have prompted could be exploited by an Arsenal side that threaten to avoid imploding this August - perhaps.
