Breaking News ! Mikel Arteta's team selection for the Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace has got a number of Arsenal fans talking. The Gunners go into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Newcastle United as they sealed a place in the third round of the FA Cup, although they needed extra-time to get the job done. With that said, Arsenal's form continues to improve. A month ago, Arteta's side were sitting 15th in the table after making their worst ever start to a Premier League season and that prompted talk of a relegation battle.
