As Arsene Wenger prepares our team to take on a vibrant Crystal Palace, he will certainly be mulling over a number of tactical battles that could decide the game.
While Alan Pardew’s side are brimming with confidence, Wenger will be expecting the boys to deliver a swift response following our lackluster display against West Ham United.
Arsenal transfer news
Here are three battles which could decide the affair.
1) Wilfried Zaha vs Hector Bellerin

Zaha seems to be showing the form which earned him the big money move to Manchester United a few years ago, and the fact that he’s already off the mark in the new season will boost his confidence.
However, in Bellerin, Zaha will encounter a defender capable of matching his every stride while also dragging him back towards his own goal.
Bellerin could nullify their main threat by doing exactly that.
