The Gunners relinquished their lead at the top of the table following their midweek draw with Southampton, with Manchester City’s impressive 5-1 win over Spurs moving Manuel Pellegrini’s side one point ahead.

Any draw at St Mary’s ended a run of 5 successive wins although despite the disappointment of dropping two points Gunners fans can console themselves by the fact that the club stretched theur unbeaten run to 8 games.

The club have been boosted ahead of the game by the signing of Swedish star Kim Kallstrom on loan for the rest of the season.

The former Lyon midfielder joins from Spartak Moscow and could even make the squad for the visit of Palace.

The arrival of the 31 year old will help Arsene Wenger cope with a midfielder crisis that will see the club take to the field on Sunday without the services of Aaron Ramey, Jack Wilshere and the suspended Matthieu Flamini.

Tomas Rosicky should play after recovering from a broken nose while long-term absentee Theo Walcott is missing.

Crystal Palace meanwhile are also in good form ahead of the game and will head to the Emirates on the back of two successive wins.

Tony Pulis has worked minor miracles since taking control at the Eagles lifting the club from bottom of the table to 14th on the back of 5 wins and 1 draw in their last 10 games.

Pulis should be able to count on Kagisho Dikgacoi and Jerome Thomas after recent injuries but Jonathan Parr is doubtful with a neck problem.

New signing, goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey could go straight into the squad following his move from Wolves while winger Jamie Puncheon will be full of confidence after making his loan move permanent.
