Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal live score, updates, highlights & lineups from the Premier League opener

Crystal Palace host Arsenal as the 2022/23 Premier League season gets under way with a compelling fixture at Selhurst Park on Friday night.

The Gunners are hoping to take the final step in their development as a top four side this season after only just missing out on Champions League qualification to north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last term.

Palace, meanwhile, have their sights set on the top half of the Premier League table after finishing 12th last season. A victory over Arsenal on the opening night would point Patrick Vieira’s team in the right direction.

Gabriel Jesus is expected to make his Premier League debut for his new team after making the £45m switch to the Emirates Stadium from Manchester City this summer. 

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal live updates, highlights from the Premier League

100 mins from kickoff: Selhurst Park is one of the most atmospheric stadiums in the Premier League and it should be very loud this evening! Palace enjoyed a positive 21/22 campaign – can they build on it this season?

110 mins from kickoff: Arsenal fans are excited ahead of the start of the 22/23 season, and perhaps with good reason! The Gunners had a strong pre-season. Jesus has made an instant impact and Arsenal have hopes of making the step into the top four!

120 mins from kickoff: Good evening and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of the Premier League curtain-raiser between Crystal Palace and Arsenal.

Vieira’s team host the Gunners at Selhurst Park, and while the away side are the favourites, it should be noted Palace beat Arsenal 3-0 in the same fixture last season. This could be fascinating! 

Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal predicted lineups

Jack Butland will miss the opening match of the 2022/23 season through injury with summer signing Sam Johnstone also on the sidelines. This means Vicente Guita will start as Palace’s goalkeeper against Arsenal.

Michael Olise is also an injury doubt for the Eagles with James McArthur unavailable. Cheick Doucoure could be favoured by Vieira at the base of the Palace midfield to prevent Arsenal from imposing themselves in the centre of the pitch.

Crystal Palace predicted XI (4-3-3): Guaita (GK) — Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Ward — Doucoure, Eze, Schlupp — Ayew, Zaha, Mateta

Bukayo Saka, Nuno Tavares, Eddie Nketiah, and Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal

Jesus is expected to start up front for Arsenal with support from Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka in the wide areas. Kieran Tierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu are injury doubts which could see Oleksandr Zinchenko selected at left-back.

Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe are also struggling to be fit for the first Premier League fixture of the season, meaning Arteta is likely to stick with his tried and tested midfield trio of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale (GK) — Zinchenko, Gabriel, White, Tomiyasu — Thomas, Xhaka — Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka — Jesus

Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal betting odds

Crystal Palace are underdogs against Arsenal as the 2022/23 Premier League season gets under way, but there could still be some value in backing the Eagles.

Vieira’s team claimed a 3-0 win in their home league fixture against Arsenal last season and Palace have the quality to at least make life difficult for the Gunners.
