ALL eyes will be on Arsenal when they start the Premier League season against Crystal Palace tonight – and they won’t want a repeat of last year.
The Gunners were humiliated by Brentford on the opening day of the 2021/22 campaign.
And they were bottom of the table until the first international break NINE goals conceded and ZERO achieved.
However, hope has been restored in the Arsenal camp as summer signings Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko hit the ground running.
But the north London side have beaten Crystal Palace just three times in their last ten meetings.

- The aim is probably to 8pm UK time.
- Selhurst Park in south London will host the first game of the new Premier League season and will seat around 25,000 fans.
- Palace defeated the Gunners 3-0 as the London rivals met late last season.

Jack Butland’s broken hand ruled him out of the duel but Sam Johnstone is close to recovering from his hamstring problem.
Mikel Arteta was without the quartet of Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe.
But the Arsenal manager confirmed after the strike against Sevilla that ‘most’ of them will be ready.
Arteta said: “They have to go through what they need this week and then hopefully we’ll have them available.
“They are missing minutes but we have to build that up like any other injury we get during the season.”
