Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Match Preview
Arsenal find themselves embroiled in a fascinating chase for a return to the Champions League next season. The Gunners currently occupy 4th place in the table, one point and one place behind arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in 3rd but above Chelsea on goal difference alone and still only two points clear of Manchester United in sixth, with five games remaining to secure their qualification for the UCL.
Unai Emery’s men have struggled on the road throughout the campaign but did manage their first away clean sheet on Monday night in their away win over ten-man Watford and that means they’ve now won five of their last six games in all competitions. That record is even better at the Emirates Stadium, where they’ve won their last eight matches on the spin in all competitions. You can back them for another win here at 1/2 with Bet365.
Crystal Palace appear to have done enough to steer clear of the relegation scrap that has ensued just below them in the Premier League table. As we enter the last four matches of the season, the Eagles currently occupy a comfortable 13th place in the table with an eight point gap over Cardiff City who currently occupy the third-bottom position although they will have had hopes of finishing higher after ending the last campaign on a high.
Whilst they have at times struggled to score goals in this campaign and have been inconsistent, it appears that Roy Hodgson and his side have now done enough and can enjoy these final few games of the season with the pressure off, which is just as well given that they have lost four of their last six Premier League fixtures. You can back them to bounce back and earn a first away win at Arsenal since 1994 here at odds of 11/2 with William Hill.
Instead, we anticipate a home victory here and a simple afternoon’s work for the Arsenal backline. The Gunners have been excellent defensively in recent home games, conceding just one goal across their last seven matches at the Emirates Stadium. Crystal Palace meanwhile have only managed one goal in their last two away games so we’re backing another home win to nil for Unai Emery’s charges here at 17/10 with William Hill.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the man to look out for in front of goal for Arsenal this season. The former Borussia Dortmund man has racked up no fewer than 18 goals in his 32 Premier League appearances so far, plus a further five in the cup competitions. After a fluke goal at Watford last week luck appears to be on the Gabon international’s side at the moment so we’re backing him to add to his tally once again here at 4/5 with PaddyPower.
