Arsenal welcome Crystal Palace to north London this evening as the hosts look to climb into the top half of the Premier League table.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners enter the top-flight fixture in 11th place in the division and will overtake 10th-placed West Ham if they can beat Palace by a three-goal margin or better. Arsenal will fancy their chances of at least collecting all three points at the Emirates Stadium amid their best run of form this season, having won their last four games – three of which were contested in the Premier League. Roy Hodgson’s visitors, meanwhile, are in mixed form, having exited the FA Cup with a 1-0 defeat by Wolves last time out and having recorded one win, one draw and one loss in their last three top-flight matches.

As such, Palace sit two places below Arsenal in 13th, though a victory here would see them leapfrog their opponents in the Premier League standings. The London derby is set to kick off at 8pm GMT, and you can follow along below as we present you with all the team news and build-up ahead of the game, as well as live updates from the clash and all the post-match reaction.
