Arsenal Predicted Lineup against Crystal Palace: Jesus, Saka

Arsenal Predicted Lineup

It is finally time for the new season to begin and Arsenal will travel to Selhurst Park to kick things off, so let’s look at the predicted lineup.

The Gunners had an up and down campaign last time around but ultimately finished outside the top four. It was a commendable effort for a squad that had a lot of young talent and so, 2022/23 promises to be even more exciting.

With the departure of Bernd Leno, Aaron Ramsdale is the new No. 1 and will look to build upon his great debut season. As for the full backs, we should see Ben White on the right flank with new signing Alex Zinchenko on the left.

There is some excitement among the fans as to the new entrant into the centre back department. William Saliba should finally be making his debut for the club after signing for the club back in the summer of 2019. The Frenchman will have the dependable presence of Gabriel accompanying him.

In the centre of midfield, the usual duo of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka will start. The duo will be key in holding onto the position and the last time Arsenal faced Crystal Palace, the midfield allowed too many chances.

Martin Odegaard, the new captain of the club will be the creative fulcrum and will start as the attacking midfielder. His ability to drop back and help defend gives them a lot more flexibility and that can be useful in finding some balance.

On the wings, the north Londoners will have the young and exciting presence of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli. These two have the ability to change the game in an instant and the duo will be looking to do just that against the Palace defence.

And up front, is the big money signing of the summer, Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. Not having a clinical attacker was a big problem for Arsenal last year and the arrival of the Brazilian should change that. There is a long way to go till the end of the season and Arteta will be hoping that his players can start off on the right foot.
