With Crystal Palace yet to appoint Ian Holloway's successor, they'll be without a manager for their game at home to Arsenal on Sunday (though, with Tony Pulis' name being bandied about, maybe that's not such a bad thing). The Eagles sacked Holloway on Wednesday on the back of five straight defeats, and they're already five points adrift of safety.
That gap will probably be even bigger by the time the weekend's out, with league leaders Arsenal enjoying a red-hot run of form -- even if they did lose to Borussia Dortmund in midweek. Arsène Wenger's side have only lost in the Premier League all season, and are unbeaten on their travels so far.
That's despite still having a pretty humongous injury list, with Theo Walcott, Yaya Sanogo, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby all definitely sidelined for this match. Mathieu Flamini and Jack Wilshere have picked up head and ankle problems respectively recently, though could appear this weekend. For Palace, usual long-term patients Paddy McCarthy, Jack Hunt, Jonny Williams and Glenn Murray are unavailable.
Crystal Palace injuries and suspensions
Out: Paddy McCarthy (groin), Jack Hunt (ankle), Jonny Williams (ankle), Glenn Murray (knee). In doubt: None.
Arsenal injuries and suspensions
Out: Theo Walcott (abdominal), Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), Abou Diaby (knee). In doubt: Mathieu Flamini (head), Jack Wilshere (ankle).
