MetiNews.Com - Every Arsenal player available to Mikel Arteta ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night
Breaking News ! Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent improvement when they entertain Crystal Palace tonight. The Gunners are back in action five days after beating Newcastle United 2-0 to reach the FA Cup fourth round as they welcome Palace to the Emirates Stadium in a Premier League London derby. Arsenal will go into the game on the back of three straight league wins that have eased talk of being involved in a surprise relegation battle this season. Speaking ahead of the fixture, Mikel Arteta has challenged his side to show what they are capable of against Palace as well as next week's home game against Newcastle.

"We will know much more I think after the next two games. "We want to keep that consistency and having the belief that we can go into every game with the feeling that we are going to win it. The more games we are able to win the better that feeling is going to be. "Obviously, to start thinking more about the table in a different direction, if you are able to win these matches your mind starts to look in a much more positive way. "[Crystal Palace] are a really dangerous side and they have shown that against big teams. They are a really compact and organised team and you know what you're going to expect. "They have players with a big individual talent that just need moments to win games, to create actions that can unbalance the game so we have to be very careful with that. Then, we have to play to be dominant again in the game. "We go from the first minute to try to win the game, to attack them and be cautious as well of the strengths that they have and try to control them as much as possible."
