Arsenal can extend their lead atop the Premier League to eight points with a victory at home over struggling a struggling Crystal Palace side that hasn't ...

Arsenal face another important step in their bid for a first Premier League title since 2004 when they host struggling Crystal Palace with a chance to go eight points clear at the top.

Defending champions Manchester City, currently five points away in second place, were busy in FA Cup action on Saturday, meaning their scheduled league match against West Ham was postponed. Pep Guardiola's men will be watching at home to see if the gap widens.

The scenario sets up favorably for the Gunners, who face a Palace side that fired its manage and ex-Arsenal great Patrick Vieira on Friday and hasn't won since December 31. Under-21 team manager Paddy McCarthy will be on the sidelines.

Their 12-match winless run in all competitions has Palace just three points away from the drop zone. What's more concerning for supporters of the club is that the number of times they've been blanked during that span (seven) outnumber the total goals scored by the club (five).

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace live updates, highlights

28th min.: Goal Arsenal! Bukayo Saka's cross from the right finds Gabriel Martinelli at the opposite post. He dances around Joel Ward and whips a shot past the Palace 'keeper and into the far side netting. Martinelli did that all on his own.

25th min.: It's been a good start to this game by Crystal Palace and their interim manager Paddy McCarthy. They've pressed Arsenal, and they've had their share of attacks. This despite missing several players.

And shortly after, right winger Michael Olise tracks back to stop a Leandro Trossard attack. Strong show of commitment from Olise to make that run.

20th min.: Injury stoppage. Palace left-back Tyrick Mitchell is injured. He looks resigned as he comes off the field, but he's back in the game.

18th min.: Chance Arsenal. Martin Odegaard picks up a loose ball at the top of the Palace box and fires at goal, but goalkeeper Joe Whitworth stops it. However, Bukayo Saka was offside on the play.

16th min.: Chance Palace! Odsonne Edouard slipped in behind the Arsenal backline, but can't beat Aaron Ramsdale with his shot. Turns out Edouard was offside on the Jeffrey Schlupp pass, but dangerous nonetheless.

11th min.: Chance Palace! Wilfried Zaha takes on Arsenal right-back Ben White 1-on-1 and then rips a shot which hits the left post and bounces off Ramsdale and out for a corner. Nothing comes of the set-piece.

Arsenal get lucky. That could have bounced off Ramsdale and into the net.

10th min.: Leandro Trossard goes down in the Palace area, but it was a half-hearted attempt at drawing a penalty. That attack was kickstarted by a quick Zinchenko throw-in to Gabriel Martinelli.

5th min.: Arsenal on the front foot, as you'd expect. But separate defensive plays by Palace defender Marc Guehi and midfielder Cheick Doucoure neutralise two Arsenal attacks that reached the area.

1st min.: We're off. There's a thin veil of smoke from flares in the stadium.

5 mins from kickoff: The teams are out on the pitch. Kickoff is moments away.

15 mins from kickoff: Injury change at centre-back for Crystal Palace. Joachim Andersen is a key part of their backline, and he's out.

Following an injury during the warm-up, Joachim Andersen will be replaced by James Tomkins in the starting XI today ℹ️

23 mins from kickoff: There seems to be an issue with Crystal Palace centre-back Joachim Andersen during warmups. We'll be monitoring this one for any lineup updates.

He's heading in early from the warm up, looks like there could be a late change #CPFC

120 mins from kickoff: Arsenal are set to miss William Saliba for the first time this Premier League season. Reuell Walters, an 18-year-old right-back from the Arsenal academy, is reportedly taking his spot in the matchday squad. Walters can play at centre-back in a pinch.
