Crystal Palace vs Arsenal team news

Eberechi Eze will undergo a late fitness test. Eze is a doubt because of a minor injury, but Hodgson is hopeful the 22-year-old midfielder will be fit.

James Tomkins is likely to be involved again after returning in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa after four months out with a fractured eye socket.

Tyrick Mitchell will continue at left-back after scoring his first Palace goal in the win against Villa. Hodgson will decide whether to recall Vicente Guaita in goal after Jack Butland started at the weekend.

Scott Dann is an injury doubt and Palace will make late checks on his fitness. Elsewhere, Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson and Mamadou Sakho all remain sidelined.

Arsenal may be able to welcome back Granit Xhaka. The midfielder has been sidelined since pulling up during the warm-up of the loss to Villarreal, but is in contention this week.

Elsewhere, David Luiz is Arteta’s only other fitness concern and there is hope he will make one last appearance for the Gunners before he leaves this summer.

Bukayo Saka struggled in a wing-back role at Chelsea and could be deployed further forward here, with Calum Chambers the likelist candidate to come in should Arteta rever to a back four.

Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe should complete the three behind the lone striker, the former potentially playing his last minutes as an Arsenal player this week.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are competing for the focal point of the attack, the latter pushing for a start after three appearances off the bench.

Neither side has a huge amount to play for in terms of the table, but Palace will be desperate to give Hodgson a proper send-off in front of the fans. Expect the hosts to go all-out for the win.

Palace 3-2 Arsenal

Crystal Palace welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park on Wednesday evening in the Premier League.

The match, set to be attended by 6,500 supporters, could be Roy Hodgson’s final game as Eagles manager, with his contract expiring next month.

Palace are safe from the drop once again, with Frank Lampard reportedly in talks to take over this summer.

It’s been a much more depressing story for the Gunners this season, though, who need a miracle to qualify for any European competition next campaign.

Mikel Arteta might have to do it without Hector Bellerin, David Luiz and Grant Xhaka, too, who are all doubtful for the short trip across the capital.

Hodgson, however, may be without up to seven players.

The 73-year-old will be hoping full-backs Nathaniel Clyne and Patrick van Aanholt are ready to return along with captain Luka Milivojevic.

The trio all missed Sunday’s comeback victory against Aston Villa.
