Arsenal still in contract talks with Wilshere - Wenger

Arsenal Henrikh Mkhitaryan Malcom not expected to sign for Arsenal in January – Arsene Wenger

Arsenal have had a very eventful week.

And with Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United "likely to happen" in the next 24 hours, reports suggested Ozil would follow suit with a Gunners exit, although Wenger has since shot down the claims. While there is a lot of talk, nothing has been completed, at time of writing, so they could be very short-handed when they host Palace. You move out or you stay here and don't play any games'.

However, Arsenal are winless in their last three top-flight games since their 3-2 win at Palace after the Gunners were forced to settle for stalemates with West Brom and defending champions Chelsea.

After starting the season miserably with no points in their first seven Premier League matches, Crystal Palace have become a formidable Premier League team again under Roy Hodgson. They earned at least £88 per spectator per league match in 2015-16 including food, drink, merchandise and tickets. The Alexis Sanchez conundrum has impacted Arsenal's transfer window heavily and for Wenger, it has been the most disturbing transfer window.

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil has always been in a contract dispute with the Gunners, and reportedly wants to double his £150,000-a-week salary.

Parton marks the only artist to earn Top 20 hits along six consecutive decades, from the 1960s to the 2010s. On songwriting in general, Parton told Guinness that "when an idea hits me, it comes from my heart".

The Gunners have the likes of Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil back from their injury lay offs, hence the only long term out is now Santi Cazorla.

Joel Ward returns for Crystal Palace after a month out with a groin injury, and Yohan Cabaye has overcome a minor complaint.

Ornstein did say that Arsenal were hopeful over both Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang deals, but that the former could go either way.

However Hodgson's team still come into this game with a slight spring in their step after winning two of their last three, seeing off the challenge of Southampton and high flying Burnley. Wenger has always gone for safer and cheaper options and many of them have proven effective but the football transfer scenario has now entered a different sphere with big fishes like Manchester City, United and PSG willing to pay any amount for their targets.
