CRY vs ARS Dream11: Arsenal can win back-to-back games in the Premier League for only the second time this season when they play Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
It came with no surprise when Unai Emery was relieved of his duties at Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta replacing the former Paris Saint-Germain at the hot-seat. There's no doubt that Arsenal have fallen behind their rivals, and need time to right the wrong, to bridge the gap, and become a genuine contender for the top-four and beyond.
What Gunners need at the moment is the belief and a sense of optimism that they can rise again, and Arteta has certainly given the fans hope. the intensity that has been lacking under Emery is back, with the players putting in for effort and running for the cause. As things stand in the league, Arsenal are 10th and ca move into the top half with a win in this game.
Above them, and at 9th place are Crystal Palace, who have certainly lost the momentum they showed earlier in the season. They have won just once in the last seven games in all competitions, with the 0-1 defeat in the FA Cup at home against Derby County may have Roy Hodgson more worrying about his team's form.
