Live stream Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: How to watch the 2022/23 Premier League season opener

The 2022/23 Premier League season begins on Friday 5 August when Crystal Palace host Arsenal. The game is a showcase event, the remainder of game week 1 takes place on Saturday and Sunday.

The Gunners did well this summer, signing Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Man City in a bid to re-establish themselves as Champions League contenders.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, also made squad changes after finishing 12th last season. The Eagles brought in American Chris Richards in defense and Cheick Doucoure from French club Lens.

This game marks Arsenal’s second consecutive season opening the English top flight after falling on the road at newly promoted Brentford last season.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal line-ups

Goalkeeper Jack Butland will miss the opening game of the 2022/23 season through injury, while summer signing Sam Johnstone is also on the touchline. That leaves the goalkeeper to 35-year-old Vicente Guaita.

Michael Olise is also an injury doubt for the Eagles with James McArthur unavailable. It also remains to be seen whether the new central defender Chris Richards will crack the starting XI. To do this, he has to depose the incumbent central defenders Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen.

Crystal Palace predicted XI (4-3-3): Guaita (GK) – Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Ward – Eze, Doucoure, Schlupp – Ayew, Mateta, Zaha

Gabriel Jesus is expected to start in the wide areas up front for Arsenal, with support from Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka. This formula proved extremely successful in the preseason.

Full-backs Kieran Tierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu are injury suspects, so Oleksandr Zinchenko could be selected at left-back and Ben White at right-back.

Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe are also struggling to be fit for the first Premier League game of the season, meaning Arteta is likely to stick with his tried and true midfield trio of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale (GK) – Zinchenko, Gabriel, Saliba, White – Thomas, Xhaka – Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka – Jesus

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Odds

Crystal Palace are underdogs at the start of the 2022/23 Premier League season against Arsenal but there could still be some value in backing the Eagles.

Vieira’s side beat Arsenal 3-0 in their home game last season and Palace have the quality to at least make life difficult for the Gunners in the new season.
