Hello good evening and welcome to our live text coverage of the English Premier League.
Tonight, Crystal Palace will aim to dent Arsenal’s top four charge when they welcome Arsene Wenger’s side to Selhurst Park.
An improving Palace side are unbeaten in eight and climbed outside the drop zone for the first time this season after successive wins against Watford and Leicester earlier this month.
The Gunners will bid to banish memories of their last trip to Selhurst Park, when a 3-0 defeat landed a telling blow to their Champions League hopes and heaped further pressure on Wenger.
It’s a BIG night for Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger matches Sir Alex Ferguson’s Premier League record of 810 games as manager this evening having outlasted a number of touchline rivals in the capital.
Since taking charge of Arsenal on October 1, 1996, Wenger has overseen 467 wins, 145 defeats, 1,521 goals scored, three league titles and seven FA Cups.
