Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: preview
After being pipped to fourth place by north London rivals Tottenham last season, Arsenal begin another bid to return to the Champions League when they visit Crystal Palace in the opening game of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign.
Seeking a top-four finish for the first time since 2016, the Gunners have strengthened Mikel Arteta’s squad by bringing in Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, while another notable summer signing is Porto’s Portugal Under-21 midfielder Fábio Vieira.
Arsenal have also recruited USMNT goalkeeper Matt Turner and teenage Brazilian winger Marquinhos.
Under former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, Palace offered plenty of promise on their way to a 12th-placed finish last term, and now embark on their 10th successive season in the Premier League.
During the off season, the Eagles have signed Mali midfielder Cheick Doucouré, USMNT defender Chris Richards, England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, and forward Malcolm Ebiowei.
