Both managers played draws in their last matches before the international break - Arteta's side drew 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion, while the Eagles took a point of their own in a meeting with Leicester City.
Vieira, a Premier League and FA Cup-winning captain, can certainly expect a warm welcome from the Emirates faithful as he prepares to face his old club as a manager for the very first time, but sentimentality will go out of the window for 90 minutes as the Eagles aim to soar to another respectable result.
Out of seven matches played so far, Palace have recorded four draws and just one victory which they got against Tottenham.
Arsenal can only boast of one win in their last six meetings with Crystal Palace but Palace have lost four of their last five away fixtures.
Arsenal's only confirmed player that has been ruled out of the clash is Granit Xhaka, however Gabriel Martinelli picked up a minor injury over the international break and will be assessed closer to the time.
For Palace, they only have long-term absentees Ebere Eze and Nathan Ferguson to worry about, with Olise announcing himself to the Premier League in style off the bench last time out.
Mike Dean (England) will officiate the game.
