ARSENAL head to Crystal Palace on Saturday aiming to continue their revival under Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard’s philosophy is starting to show through his side – even though they initially struggled to get past Leeds in the FA Cup.
That 1-0 win followed the 2-0 triumph over Manchester United on New Year’s Day.
Now the Gunners will be desperate to maintain their 100 per cent start to 2020 against the Eagles.
And Arteta could be boosted by the return of Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin.
The 24-year-old has not played since the defeat by Brighton on December 5 after complaining about a tight hamstring.
Arteta confirmed on Thursday that the defender was “being assessed” ahead of the trip to Palace.
And if he is fit enough to start, then he could slot straight into a side that would be nearly the same as the one that lined-up against United.
Bellerin would take the place of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and Matteo Guendouzi could come in alongside Lucas Torreira in midfield at the expense of Granit Xhaka.
And the much-maligned Pepe is more than likely to continue in attack after finally finding his form since Arteta arrived in the dug-out.

However, it looks unlikely that Bellerin will be thrown straight back into the mix.
And that should mean Maitland-Niles gets the nod at right-back.
Reiss Nelson has also impressed under Arteta, and the Arsenal chief may just decide to put him in attack and leave Pepe on the bench.
