Arsenal v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm
The Gunners were dealt another away blow last weekend as they slumped to a defeat against Bournemouth. That loss leaves them really struggling to make a run at a top-four finish this season and pressure is back on Arsene Wenger. Crystal palace improved further with a victory over Burnley last weekend and have their sights on the top half of the table. Arsenal are 1/2 at Ladbrokes to win, with the draw at 10/3 and Crystal Palace at 24/5* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
Arsenal News and Form
The Gunners are on the slide with just two wins in their last nine Premier League games. You don’t expect to be saying that about them. They have won just one of their last five played and there were alarm bells ringing loudly last weekend as they lost at Bournemouth after having taken the lead early in the second half. Arsenal now go into the weekend eight points away from the top four and have a vastly inferior goal difference to the five sides above them as well. Their home form reads W8 D2 L1 this season but hey have drawn their last two there against Liverpool and Chelsea, while winning just one of their last four on whom soil, a 1-0 victory over Newcastle in mid-December. The amount of goals that they have been conceding is alarming with no clean sheets in five and having conceded ten goals in that sequence. It could lead to a bit of value in both teams to score at Ladbrokes at least. Arsenal have conceded twelve goals at home this season and five of those have been in their last two. They have earned clean sheets in 55% of their home fixtures, but one doesn’t look too likely at the moment. The Gunners have scored in all of their home games so far this season and 63% of their home goals this term have come in the second half of matches.
Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace could end up in the top half of the table after the weekend, that is the turnaround that they have produced. They have lost just one of their last twelve league games now, but the one loss in that sequence was at home against Arsenal on December 28th. But the Eagles made the Gunners sweat in the game. The Eagles go into the game with back to back league wins under their belt having claimed one-goal margin victories over Southampton and Burnley. That leaves them with a good W4 D2 L1 record in their last seven played. Away from home, they are unbeaten in five now (W2 D3) and so are holding their own without question. Because their recent form has improved so much you have to take their six goals only scored this season on their travels all in context as they have all come in their last three road games. Palace have won two of their last three road games, taking down Leicester and Southampton. They are playing with a confidence that Arsenal can only dream of at the moment. This would be a huge victory for them if they could get it. Over 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes has to be worth a look in this one, as it could once again be an entertaining London derby clash.
Arsenal v Crystal Palace Head to Head
Arsenal had to really work hard to get their 3-2 win over Palace back at the end of December. Things have been pretty even between the two of them recently with Arsenal W2 D1 L1 in their last four league outings against the Eagles. The Gunners have gone unbeaten in their last six on home soil in the Premier League against the Eagles, so they do have the positive going for them. The Gunners have netted at least two goals in four of their last five home games against the Eagles in all competitions.
Who will win – Arsenal v Crystal Palace Predictions
The draw may have some appeal here as things aren’t going Arsenal’s way at the moment and the overall performance levels just haven’t even there. Palace are confident enough to go and battle their way to what would be a good point for them.
