Arsenal find themselves as 2/9 favourites to beat Crystal Palace in the Sunday afternoon kick-off as new signings look to show their potential at the Emirates.
The January transfer window is often a chance for teams to bring somen new faces to help with the final push for the season and several new arrival could be on show as Arsenal take on Crystal Palace at The Emirates Stadium.
After their mid-week draw at Southampton, Arsenal now find themselves in second place on the table just a point behind new leaders Man City.
Arsene Wenger may need to be forced to experiment a little bit in the next couple of fixtures with Aaron Ramsey out for the next six weeks from a leg injury whilst Mathieu Flamini is suspended after a straight red on Tuesday night.
It means that Kim Kallstrom could make his debut after joining on loan from Spartak Moscow or either Mesut Ozil or Santi Cazorla drop back into the midfield with Lukas Podolski filling in the gaps.
A key part to Arsenal getting a good result will be their resolute defence which has been on fire at home this season as The Gunners have kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven league games at The Emirates.
Sunday will be a difficult trip for a Crystal Palace side who have improved tremendously over the past few months and now find themselves sitting in 14th place four points clear of the relegation one.
Palace have been busy in the transfer window making no more than 5 signings and several of the players could make their debut including Welsh goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and highly rated midfielder Tom Ince.
Aside from that, The Eagles will be without midfielders Jerome Thomas and Kagisho Dikgacoi who are battling with calf injuries whilst Glenn Murray is also a major doubt due to a knee injury.
The new signings could put pressure on Palace’s regulars in attack where they have scored just 15 times all season with only five of their goals coming away from Selhurst Park.
With so many new signings on display, it could mean that Palace could catch Arsenal by surprise although The Gunners will no doubt be hoping their action will help them maintain their title challenge over the second half of the season.
