As Rodney Marsh or Alan Hansen would say, Palace have two chances in this one... slim and none
Saturday, 6 November
Kick-off: 1715 GMT
Crystal Palace defender Fitz Hall is doubtful with a knee problem, but boss Iain Dowie will leave it until the last minute before making a decision.
Sandor Torghelle is available again following a one-match suspension.
Arsenal's Edu is still ruled out with a calf injury as are Sol Campbell (Achilles), Jermaine Pennant (hamstring) and Gael Clichy (ankle).
The Gunners must decide whether to rest Dennis Bergkamp, with Robin van Persie hoping to make his first league start.
Palace (from): Speroni, Kiraly, Boyce, Butterfield, Borrowdale, Hudson, Hall, Popovic, Leigertwood, Powell, Sorondo, Granville, Riihilahti, Hughes, Kolkka, Derry, Danze, Watson, Routledge, Lakis, Freedman, Johnson, Torghelle, Kaviedes.
Arsenal (from): Lehmann, Almunia, Taylor, Lauren, Hoyte, Cole, Cygan, Toure, Senderos, Vieira, Fabregas, Flamini, Pires, Reyes, Ljungberg, van Persie, Henry, Bergkamp.
** I'm not sure , but Torghelle may be banned after getting sent off again for the reserves in midweek.
