Arsenal continue their top-four pursuit with another Premier League London derby against longtime friend Patrick Vieira and his Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park (watch live at 3 p.m. ET Monday on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com ).
Since their New Year’s Day loss to Man City, Arsenal’s only PL defeat came on March 16 at Liverpool and the Gunners took the Catbird seat when it comes to claiming fourth place. The third may be in play now that Chelsea have dropped points again.
Palace and Arsenal drew 2-2 at the Emirates in October, another game on Monday and one that saw Alexandre Lacazette save a point for the Gunners in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard also scored in the draw.

Palace have two wins and two draws in their last four matches, and Vieira’s men are unbeaten in six in all competitions as they claim a 2-1 FA Cup win over Stoke City and a 4-0 demolition of Everton in the same competition.
Vieira, the legendary Arsenal midfielder, was recently honored in the Premier League Hall of Fame, and his managerial career got off to a good start in England after spells with Ligue 1 club Nice and MLS club NYCFC.
