Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Premier League preview

Follow the latest updates live as Arsenal take on Crystal Palace looking to strengthen their place in the Premier League top four.

Arsenal head into the match off the back of their progression to the Europa League semi-finals and a first Premier League away win in two months following last Monday’s win over Watford. With Tottenham losing on Saturday and Manchester United trailing at Everton, Arsenal can seize the advantage in the race for Champions League football.

But Crystal Palace will be no pushovers in this London derby, with Roy Hodgson’s side still needing to mathematically secure their place in the Premier League, and with the Eagles still a point away from the 40-point mark they cannot be taken lightly by Unai Emery’s side. Follow the live updates below.

What time does it start?

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace kicks off at 4pm on Sunday 21 April.

Where can I watch it?

Arsenal: Leno, Mustafi, Koscielny, Mavropanos, Jenkinson, Guendouzi, Elneny, Kolasinac, Ozil, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Well, the action continues here at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Liverpool can afford nothing less than a win following Manchester City's 1-0 win over Tottenham yesterday, and they may need demonstrate a similarly determined performance as Guardiola's men yesterday.

That's because their hosts today are still in the middle of a relegation battle, but Cardiff's fears were eased slightly by their 2-0 win at Brighton in midweek.

Arsenal will also be looking to take advantage of Man Utd's humiliation at Everton, as they face a Palace side who upset Man City at the Etihad earlier in the season.

"No obvious weaknesses for Liverpool" says Graeme Souness as Jordan Henderson starts at the base of the midfield.

Cardiff have not beaten a top half side at home all season, but is this where Liverpool's grip on the title loosens?
