Arsenal started off their Premier League title challenge with a convincing 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest last weekend, at least for the first 80 minutes that is.
Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah were both on target for the Gunners as they got three points under their belt early on, but Thomas Partey started at right-back and Gabriel was dropped from the starting XI, confusing fans.
With Jurrien Timber out for an extended period of time, though, Mikel Arteta will need the whole squad at full fitness.
They face a Crystal Palace side who are taking positive steps under Roy Hodgson, especially after they beat new boys Sheffield United 1-0 away from home on opening day. The side is strong and balanced, but a lack of goals from the strikers this season could prove a problem for Palace, despite Odsonne Édouard bagging the winner at Bramall Lane.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Crystal Palace are missing Michael Olise, Will Hughes and Matheus Franca for the visit of Arsenal, with Olise likely going to take the longest to recover.
Arsenal will be without new signing Jurrien Timber for a number of months, though the full extent of his knee injury isn’t yet known. What is known, though, is that Oleksandr Zinchenko and Folarin Balogun could both be fit enough to make the bench, but Gabriel Jesus will be out until at least September.

Kick-off and channel
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal kick-off is at 8pm BST on Monday 21 August in the UK. The game is on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 3pm ET / 12pm PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
