Team News: Campbell Among Debutants At Arsenal

16 August 2014

Fraizer Campbell will lead the line for Crystal Palace this evening having been handed his Premier League debut for the club against Arsenal.

The former Cardiff City striker is one of three Eagles new boys set to start at the Emirates, with Brede Hangeland and Martin Kelly also going straight into the side for today's 5.30pm kick-off.

Campbell has held off competition from Glenn Murray and Dwight Gayle to partner Marouane Chamakh up top, while Kelly and Hangeland have been selected by caretaker boss Keith Millen in favour of Adrian Mariappa and Damien Delaney, who both have slight injury concerns. 

Julian Speroni has been preferred in goal with January signing Wayne Hennessey taking his place on the substitutes' bench. 

Arsenal: Szczesny, Debuchy, Koscielny, Chambers, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Sanchez, Sanogo. 

Arsenal substitutes: Martinez, Monreal, Coquelin, Rosicky, Chamberlain, Campbell, Giroud.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Hangeland, Ward, Puncheon, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Chamakh, Campbell.

Crystal Palace substitutes: Hennessey, Delaney, McCarthy, O'Keefe, Bannan, Gayle, Murray.
