Arsenal visit Crystal Palace this evening, with some of the fanbase on Twitter not particularly pleased with Mikel Arteta’s team selection.
The Gunners still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League. Though, those hopes may well have diminished by the time they kick off, depending on Tottenham and Everton’s results.
All that Arteta can really ask from his players is to finish on a high, with the Spaniard naming the following starting XI in a bid to defeat Roy Hodgson’s Palace in his final ever game in charge at Selhurst Park.

Arsenal fans have endured plenty this campaign, so you could forgive them for not always having blind faith in their manager.
However, every time a lineup is announced, there seems to be a fanbase-wide meltdown across social media, with tonight being no exception to the rule.
In this case, Arsenal fans have bemoaned the absence of Cedric and Gabriel Martinelli, both of whom the fans in question believe would merit a spot in the starting side tonight.
Jesus, what do Martinelli and Cedric have to do to get some damn game time? I will never understand this coach
