There have been signs of improvement over recent weeks for Arsenal, and they can continue to build on that momentum with a win at the Emirates against Crystal Palace this week.
Premier League Preview
Mikel Arteta has managed to find a system that works for his Gunners side, and they will be looking for a fourth Premier League win in a row against Crystal Palace this week. A win for the Gunners would take them level on points with Chelsea, and within three of the top four in the Premier League. However, the Gunners would have played at least two more games than the sides in contention for a European place, which means that there is still work to do. It had been a damaging first half to the season for the Gunners, as Arteta came under huge pressure as the side sat just outside the relegation places. Only the bottom three in the league have lost more games than the Gunners this season, but recently there has been a transformation. Arsenal’s recent 4-0 win against West Bromwich Albion made it three wins on the bounce. Alexandre Lacazette’s form has been excellent during this run, as he has scored four goals in three games.
Crystal Palace look set to compete for a position in the middle of the table in the second half of the campaign, as it looks unlikely that they will be relegated or compete for a European place. Palace have won six of their 16 games this season, and have lost just twice in their last six outings in the league. Palace managed to get a first win in five in their last league game, as they beat Sheffield United 2-0. Jeffrey Schlupp put them on their way to the win, before Eberechi Eze scored an outstanding second.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Head To Head
Crystal Palace have beaten Arsenal just three times in 22 Premier League meetings. The most recent win for the Eagles came in April 2019. There have been three draws in the previous four, while Arsenal’s last win against Palace came in January 2018.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction
The head to head record does show that Palace have the ability to get something out of this game. However, it’s hard to ignore the upturn in Arsenal’s recent form. The Gunners should claim the three points at the Emirates.
