More news about Marcelo Flores:
Flores, who is just 18 years old and who has excelled with Arsenal's U-23 squads in the Professional Development League in England, was called up by Mikel Arteta.
This call-up is for the player to appear with the Gunners before the club's matchday 31 of the Premier League, in which they will face Crystal Palace, who are in 12th place in the competition.
Will Marcelo Flores make his Premier League debut for Arsenal?
While there is no certainty that the Mexican will make his debut with the first team, the numbers suggest that he will, as Arsenal has always maintained its dominance over the Eagles.

And in terms of draws, both clubs have been equal in 5 duels. In their last 5 meetings, the two clubs have drawn 4 times, but in one of them, Arsenal won comprehensively with a score of 1-3.
Moreover, in the current EPL 2022 Arsenal has 17 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats, while Palace has 7 wins, 13 draws, and 9 defeats, so the Gunners' performance has been better this season.
Because of all these numbers, everything suggests that Marcelo Flores could make his debut today at Selhurst Park Stadium since the match does not represent a serious risk for those who play at the Emirates Stadium.
And since it is a match that does not represent a serious risk, Mikel Arteta could be encouraged to try what he has on the bench, and that is where the possibility of Marcelo Flores making his debut in the Premier League lies.
