It’s that time of year again when the Premier League fixtures for the upcoming season are announced, and for Arsenal, they’re going to be kickstarting things with an encounter against one of the club’s favourite midfield sons – Patrick Vieira and Crystal Palace.

Arsenal fans were understandably anxious about the prospect of facing Crystal Palace on Monday Night Football, but they probably didn’t expect things to go quite as south as they did. The Gunners were outfought in pretty much every area of the pitch at Selhurst Park with Patrick Vieira’s men putting on an absolute clinic from beginning to end.

It hands the keys to the top four castle over to Tottenham Hotspur and now, Arsenal are in desperate need of a response this weekend.

After the game, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the loss.

The shocking defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday certainly hurt Arsenal’s chances of securing a place in next season’s Champions League to an extent, but it also brought up a couple of worries of another sort for manager Mikel Arteta.

Nuno Tavares was named to start on the left defensive flank, and even though he can hardy be blamed directly for any of the three goals the Gunners conceded, he arguably could’ve done better for the first two. Kieran Tierney probably would have done better if it had been him, but the Scotsman was left out of the matchday squad with a knee injury he seems to have picked up while representing his country during the latest international break, playing 90 minutes in both friendlies and scoring against Poland.

After another weekend of fascinating Premier League action, Arsenal have the honour of rounding things off on Monday Night Football. At this moment in time they’re fifth in the table, with two games in hand on rivals Tottenham – who they only trail on goal difference.

While Crystal Palace are in good form, there are no excuses for the Gunners if they can’t get the win here. It’s a huge moment for them in their development and their push for Champions League football under Antonio Conte and prior to kick-off, manager Mikel Arteta reiterated how key this fixture is.

Arsenal will have to wait for everyone else to play before getting back to action in the Premier League as they prepare to lock horns with Crystal Palace in a London derby. The Gunners have a chance to really lock down their pursuit of the top four and a place back in the Champions League but if they’re going to get there, they may have to do so without a few key players.

As per, manager Mikel Arteta has provided fans with some updated team news as the UCL push continues.

Arsenal demand explanation for McArthur avoiding red card for Saka foul 0

Posted on October 21, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Just before the halftime of Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday, James McArthur committed a savage, deliberate foul on Bukayo Saka, and referee Mike Dean shocked most people by showing the Palace midfielder only a yellow card.

There can be no doubt about the malicious intention in that situation; McArthur knew exactly what he was doing and he was never going for the ball at all. With Saka, who soon had to leave the pitch because of it, yet to return to training and being a huge doubt for the Aston Villa clash on Friday, there can also be no doubt about the fact that McArthur’s foul endangered the safety of an opposition player – an offence worthy of a red card, according to the rules.

Problems all over the pitch in Palace draw 0

Arsenal were yet again held to a disappointing draw on Monday evening at the Emirates as Crystal Palace managed to overturn the Gunners’ early lead, created by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, through Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard, and Alexandre Lacazette eventually salvaged a point with a last-gasp strike. The three defeats with which Mikel Arteta’s team started the season were patched over to an extent with three consecutive triumphs, including the impressive one in the North London Derby, but shadows of old troubles first appeared in a goalless draw away to Brighton and Hove Albion ahead of the international break, and now this. It’s only natural to ask the question of what went wrong this time. In short – almost everything.

Granit Xhaka suffered a medial collateral ligament injury in the 82nd minute of Arsenal’s 3-1 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur on September the 26th, and he was initially ruled out for up to three months. The time of his absence from the pitch will likely be a week or two longer than that, however.

“Granit is making good progress in the initial stages of his recovery from a medial knee ligament injury sustained on September 26. The current aim is for Granit to be back in full training early in the New Year,” an update provided by the club states.
