The Gunners will now prepare for their first away fixture of the season as they hope to better their second place finish of the 2022/23 season when May comes around.
Speaking ahead of the match, Mikel Arteta said: “We want to be better every single day and to be better the environment has to change and be better. We tend to always be at a certain level because it’s in our nature - when you change the environment and the environment is to be 100% every day, believe me, the level is going to increase.”

Their most recent meeting, which took place in March 2023, saw the Gunners beat Crystal Palace 4-1 while their most recent match at Selhurst also saw Arsenal win, this time 2-0.
Crystal Palace’s Olise has committed his future to Selhurst Park but remains sidelined as he recovers from a severe thigh injury. His manager has conceded that it will be a “while” before he is seen on the pitch. New summer signing Matheus Franca will also be a doubt as he had his debut delayed due to a lower back concern while Will Hughes is still yet to recover from a knee injury he sustained in pre-season.
Marc Guehi had to come off with cramp in Sheffield but is set to be fit for the upcoming clash.
As for their upcoming opponent, Arsenal’s new summer signing Jurrien Timber lasted just 50 minuted on his Premier League debut before becoming the latest in an increasing line of players to sustain an ACL injury which will now see him sidelined for several months.
However, Oleksandr Zinchenko is on the brink of a return from a calf issue while Jesus (knee) will once again miss out and the availability of Folarin Balogun (ankle), Albert Sambi Lokonga (muscle) and Mohamed Elneny (knee) is being questioned.
