Arsenal news, exclusives and analysis

Mikel Arteta’s men are five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the league summit and are looking to complete their first double over their London neighbours since the 2017/18 season.

Palace are currently in 12th place but are only three points above the relegation zone and they sacked manager Patrick Vieira on Friday following a 12-match winless run in all competitions.

But with so much at stake, will fans be able to watch Arsenal vs Crystal Palace on TV anywhere in the UK? Here is everything you need to know.

What time does the game kick-off?

The game starts today at 2pm.

Is Arsenal vs Crystal Palace on TV?

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace will not be shown live on TV anywhere in the UK.

The game was not selected by either Sky Sports or BT Sport for TV coverage and it was originally scheduled for Saturday at 3pm.

However, with Arsenal playing Sporting in the Europa League on Thursday night, the game was pushed back by almost 24 hours.

Sky had originally planned to show Brighton vs Manchester United and Manchester City vs West Ham as part of its Super Sunday coverage.

However, with Brighton and the two Manchester clubs playing in the FA Cup instead this weekend, Sky will have no Premier League games to broadcast on Sunday.

And as the Arsenal vs Crystal Palace game was not originally selected for TV, the game cannot now be switched for live coverage despite no other Premier League games being broadcast today.

Will the game be on radio?

Fans will be able to listen to Arsenal vs Crystal Palace live on BBC Radio 5 Live.

What is the team news?

The Gunners will be without Takehiro Tomiyasu, Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah.

Tomiyasu was forced off in the shootout defeat to Sporting earlier in the week, Nketiah will be out for a few more weeks with an ankle injury and Elneny is set to miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

William Saliba, who was also withdrawn from the clash with Sporting, is reportedly set to undergo a late fitness test ahead of today’s game.

Gabriel, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Leandro Trossard were further casualties against the Portuguese side, but the trio look to be winning their races to be fit.

Meanwhile, Palace will be missing Sam Johnstone, Vicente Guaita and Nathan Ferguson, while Albert Sambi Lokonga will be unavailable to face his parent club.
