Arsenal will be hoping for a better result at Selhurst Park compared to last season which saw the Gunners lose 3-0 to Patrick Vieira’s side.
To prevent this result from being repeated it is likely that Arteta will be fielding new signings that have strengthened the team compared to the previous campaign.
Crystal Palace host Arsenal as the 2022/23 Premier League season gets under way with a compelling fixture at Selhurst Park on Friday night.
The Gunners are hoping to take the final step in their development as a top four side this season after only just missing out on Champions League qualification to north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last term.
Palace, meanwhile, have their sights set on the top half of the Premier League table after finishing 12th last season. A victory over Arsenal on the opening night would point Patrick Vieira’s team in the right direction.
Gabriel Jesus is expected to make his Premier League debut for his new team after making the £45m switch to the Emirates Stadium from Manchester City this summer.
