Team News: Arsenal v Palace

2 February 2014

Jonathan Parr and Kagisho Dikgacoi are back from injury for this afternoon's clash with Arsenal.

Norwegian full back Parr comes back into the back four after suffering concussion in the FA Cup fourth round defeat at Wigan Athletic last month. 

Dikgacoi meanwhile has not appeared for the Eagles since the first weekend of January, when Palace defeated West Brom 2-0 in the third round of the competition. 

His return means he will slot into midfield alongside Mile Jedinak, allowing Joel Ward to revert to his more familiar right back role.

New signing Wayne Hennessey is named on the bench.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud

Arsenal subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Rosicky, Zelalem, Gnabry, Bendtner 

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Ward, Gabbidon, Delaney, Parr, Bolasie, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Puncheon, Chamakh, Jerome.

Crystal Palace subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, McCarthy, Guedioura, Bannan, Gayle, Wilbraham.
