Roy Hodgson has made two changes to the matchday squad from Palace’s game against Manchester City, with Andros Townsend coming in to the starting XI for Jeffrey Schlupp, whilst Martin Kelly returns from injury to make the bench.
Kelly’s return to the squad, in place of Jairo Riedewald, comes after a late fitness test yesterday. However, Vicente Guaita remains out so Wayne Hennessey remains between the sticks.
Today’s opponents have handed a Premier League debut to Kieran Tierney, with Sead Kolasinac dropping to the bench. Lacazette has overcome a recent injury to keep his starting place from Thursday night in the Europa League.
Palace: Hennessey (GK), Ward, Van Aanholt, Cahill, Tomkins, Milivojevic (captain), Kouyaté, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Ayew.
Subs: Henderson (GK), Dann, Meyer, Schlupp, Benteke, McCarthy, Kelly.
Arsenal: Leno (GK), Chambers, Luiz, Sokratis, Tierney, Guendouzi, Xhaka (captain), Ceballos, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Subs: Martinez (GK), Bellerin, Torreira, Holding, Kolasinac, Martinelli, Saka.
