Arsenal is fighting hard to qualify for Champions League next year and they will play hard to win against Crystal Palace as Emirates Stadium is hosting the Eagles, , reports BBC. 

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is unsure if Juventus-bound midfiel­der Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for the club after suffering a hamstring injury against Napoli on Thursday. Granit Xhaka and Denis Suarez will have their respective hip and groin problems assessed, while Sokratis is suspended.

Crystal Palace are without Jeffrey Schlupp, who will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury. Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins are also unavailable.

Given their patchy away performances, you feel they probably have to set a new club record for consecutive wins on their own patch if they're to bag a top-four spot.

Crystal Palace could present problems though - they are the only team in the division to have won more games away than at home prior to the Easter weekend.

They're also the only English club to win at Manchester City this season and gave Liverpool a scare at Anfield, so they could well be dangerous guests for the Gunners.
