Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira faces former club Arsenal for the first time when his Eagles travel across London to the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The Frenchman has had a mixed start to his first managerial gig in the Premier League but will hope to inspire his team to a famous result in this one.

Here's a look at the starting XI Vieira could pick...


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Vicente Guaita (GK): This would be a big time to record only a third clean sheet of the season.

Joel Ward (RB):
Ever-present across eight games in all competitions.

Joachim Andersen (CB): Automatic starter since making his debut as a substitute in August.

Marc Guehi (CB): Has played every minute since joining from Chelsea and looks very solid.

Tyrick Mitchell (LB): Starts in the last 13 Premier League games in a row. Guaranteed to be there again.

2. Midfielders

James McArthur (CM): Started every league match this season.

Luka Milivojevic (CM):
Back in the starting lineup and wearing the armband in the last two games.

Conor Gallagher (CM):
Arguably one of the signings of the season so far on loan from Chelsea.

3. Forwards

Odsonne Edouard

Jordan Ayew (RW): Still waiting for his first goal or assist of the season.

Odsonne Edouard (ST): Hasn’t added to his goal tally since a sensational debut last month.

Wilfried Zaha (LW): Reached better form in September after a slow start to the season.
