Sam Allardyce & Arsene Wenger

No Mesut Ozil: Arsenal v Crystal Palace [Team Sheets]

Arsenal v Crystal Palace

Arsenal take on Crystal Palace in what will be wet conditions at The Emirates on Sunday, on New Year’s Day 2017.

The Gunners will be keen to build on the 1-0 victory over West Brom on Boxing Day, with Olivier Giroud bagging a late winner.

It is another instalment of Sam Allardyce v Arsene Wenger, with the new Crystal Palace manager taking charge of just his second game with The Eagles.

Can Allardyce guide Crystal Palace to a result at The Emirates?

Palace drew at Watford in Allardyce’s opening match in charge after taking over from Alan Pardew.

Whilst Allardyce made his name at Bolton by roughing up some of Arsene Wenger’s best Arsenal sides, he has struggled against the Gunners in recent seasons.

Mesut Ozil misses out as he is unwell. Lucas Perez replaces the German playmaker.

Great offer on Arsenal to win
