Arsenal XI vs Crystal Palace: Predicted line-ups, confirmed team news and latest injuries for Premier League fixture

Smith Rowe has been battling a groin problem and revealed earlier this week that he will likely miss tomorrow night’s curtain raiser at Selhurst Park.

Tierney, Tomiyasu and Vieira also struggled with injury issues and struggled for minutes in pre-season.

Asked about the fitness of the Arsenal quartet on Thursday, Arteta said: “Well, three out of four of them, they’ll probably be training this afternoon.

“If all goes well, they will be available for selection in the squad. Hopefully they will start to recover because they missed a lot of minutes and time in pre-season. They are really important players for us.

Pressed to clarify who of the four won’t be training, Arteta replied: “Good question! You’ll find out tomorrow.
