Arsenal v Crystal Palace Live Commentary & Result, 27/10/2019, Premier League

The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away. 

Arsenal haven’t lost a home league game in October since 2002 (1-2 vs Blackburn Rovers), winning 25 and drawing five since.

Roy Hodgson makes just one change to his side from their last game. Schlupp drops down to the bench, with Townsend coming in to replace him.

Unai Emery makes nine changes to his team after their win in the Europa League on Thursday, with only Tierney and Lacazette retaining their places. Pepe has been rewarded for his two goals that won them the game with a place in the starting line-up and Aubameyang also comes in. 

CRYSTAL PALACE SUBS: Stephen Henderson, Scott Dann, Max Meyer, Jeffrey Schlupp, Christian Benteke, James McCarthy, Martin Kelly.

CRYSTAL PALACE STARTING XI (4-5-1): Wayne Hennessey; Joel Ward, James Tomkins, Gary Cahill, Patrick van Aanholt; Andros Townsend, Cheikhou Kouyate, Luka Milivojevic, James McArthur, Wilfried Zaha; Jordan Ayew.

ARSENAL SUBS: Emiliano Martinez, Rob Holding, Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Sead Kolasinac.

ARSENAL STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Calum Chambers, Sokratis, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney; Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka; Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal come into this game having lost just one of their last eight games in all competitions (W6 D1), but that did come in their last outing in the league when they were beaten 1-0 by Sheffield United. They bounced back from that on Thursday though with a last-minute win over Vitoria. Palace were on a three-match unbeaten run in the league, winning two and drawing one of those matches, but that ended last weekend when they lost to Manchester City.
