Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Arsenal has not registered consecutive victories in the Premier League since mid-August. However, with Crystal Palace going through a difficult time right now, the Gunners are in the race to be victorious on Saturday.
Crystal Palace lost points for the second week in a row after a 1-1 draw against Norwich on the road. The hosts experienced the worst beginnings of this last crash and were left behind in the first five minutes. However, a late goal by Connor Wickham ensured that the Glaziers made the return trip with a portion of the loot.
With twenty-eight points in his name, Crystal Palace is currently just above Arsenal in the ninth.
On the other hand, the Gunners recovered from their sad 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea, achieving an excellent 2-0 victory over Manchester United at home. Then, the guests eliminated Leeds with a score of 1-0 in their last FA game and will make the trip to Selhurst Park after this positive result.
It should also be mentioned that under Mikel Arteta, Arsenal only tripped once. In addition, the Gunners are undefeated in their last five starts in all competitions.
In addition, Crystal Palace has admitted defeat in half of its six previous PL games here and has not yet won a Big Six victory this season.
To make matters worse, the hosts have only obtained rights to bluff once in their last seven meetings with this enemy here. With Arsenal showing signs of promise in their last games, a defeat is certainly looming for Crystal Palace this weekend.
In addition, the Gunners were a nervous group in their third defensive third. They have kept a blank sheet only once on the road and have awarded thirteen goals so far.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace has been consistent in getting their names on the score sheet in their last four games here. To top it off, four of their five previous h2h meetings at this stadium also saw the two teams find the bottom of the net together. Therefore, expect more of the same in this as well.
