Arsene Wenger highlighted Crystal Palace’s direct nature ahead of the game and the majority of their counter-attacks are started by Mile Jedinak. The midfielder can break up play, take set-pieces, score and also man-mark players out of the game. Arsenal will need to be at their best to try and play around him.
