Arsenal watched Tottenham claim back fourth place in the Premier League on Sunday and must now mount a response of their own when they face Crystal Palace on Monday night.
The big positive for the Gunners is that they have two games in hand over Spurs and are still level on points with their rivals, but Mikel Arteta knows his side cannot afford too many slip-ups in the race for a Champions League spot.
Crystal Palace themselves are aiming for a top-half finish this term, currently sitting 12th but able to climb to ninth if they take the points on home soil in this clash.
The Eagles’ improvement this season was reflected in the international exploits from several players with England during the recent break, with Tyrick Mitchell, Marc Guehi and Conor Gallagher all featuring for Gareth Southgate’s squad.
