Crystal Palace welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park on Wednesday evening in the Premier League.
The match, set to be attended by 6,500 supporters, could be Roy Hodgson’s final game as Eagles manager, with his contract expiring next month.
Palace are safe from the drop once again, with Frank Lampard reportedly in talks to take over this summer.
It’s been a much more depressing story for the Gunners this season, though, who need a miracle to qualify for any European competition next campaign.
Mikel Arteta might have to do it without Hector Bellerin, David Luiz and Grant Xhaka, too, who are all doubtful for the short trip across the capital.
Hodgson, however, may be without up to seven players.
The 73-year-old will be hoping full-backs Nathaniel Clyne and Patrick van Aanholt are ready to return along with captain Luka Milivojevic.
The trio all missed Sunday’s comeback victory against Aston Villa.
What time is Crystal Palace vs Arsenal?
Kick-off is at 7pm on Wednesday in one of six Premier League fixtures.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal TV channel and live stream
Wednesday’s clash will be shown on BT Sport.
Coverage of the match will start at 6:30pm on their BT Sport 1 and BT Ultimate channels. Those with subscriptions can stream the game through the BT Sport app.
What form are the teams in?
Two wins from their last three league outings have seen the Eagles soar away from the scrap just above the now closed-off relegation zone.
The aforementioned victory against Villa on Sunday came late thanks to youngster Tyrick Mitchell’s goal, adding to strikes from Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha.
Arsenal boast three successive top-flight wins and had the weekend off.
The Gunners’ plucky win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Wednesday was a welcome highlight in a season of lows, as Arteta aims to end the term on a positive note.
Having drawn 0-0 in the reverse fixture, Palace are unbeaten in their last five meetings with the North London side, last losing in January 2018.
