65' Martin Ødegaard replaces Bukayo Saka.
55' Foul by Jeffrey Schlupp.
Bukayo Saka wins a free kick in the attacking half.

Saka delivers but Kouyate nods away.

Penalty?! No! The offside flag is raised. Palace very lucky there.
27' Another Saka corner, which is initially headed away before Guiata is up to punch it clear.
23' Palace win a corner as Holding clears his lines. Townsend swings the ball in and Tomkins gets his head to it but Leno grabs at full stretch down to his right.
21' SHOT!
Good block from Cahill's head as Chambers is picked out at the top by Partey. His floated cross in though only smacked the Crystal Palace captain in the face before going clear.
18' Arsenal clear the initial delivery, but Palace come again as Townsend lofts a good cross into the area. Schlupp is waiting, but he is muscled out of the way as Arsenal clear.
17' Free kick on the left for Palace, not far outside the area as Townsend is tripped. Townsend to take...

Saka sends it in but Benteke is up to clear.
7' Wilfried Zaha has a neat run at the Arsenal defence now and wins a corner off Rob Holding - and though the initial delivery is too long to cause danger, the return effort is just nudged past the near-post by Gary Cahill.
