Not really.Why though? 3 points against Palace are as important as 3 points against Arsenal. If you lose or draw against Palace what good does to rest players in that game. He should be on the bench at the very least so he can be used if the game requires so.
If we beat Palace but lose to Arsenal then the gap between us and Arsenal stays at 9 points. If we lose to Palace but beat Arsenal the gap is narrowed to 6 points. Winning one of those matches counts for more than winning the other.
In reality we need to win both. But given the Arsenal game is the more difficult and important one while Palace are a team who should be significantly worse than us even without Casemiro, the best way to win both might be to prioritise the Arsenal game.
