Crystal Palace Prediction – Can Crystal Palace keep in touch with top five?

9th placed Crystal Palace have produced some stubborn displays in recent weeks in the Premier League as The Eagles have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches overall in the top flight which was a 1-0 loss away from home at Newcastle United.

Roy Hodgson’s side though have picked up some impressive wins along the way during this period with Palace beating the likes of Burnley, Bournemouth and West Ham as well as picking up points in draws with Watford, Brighton, Southampton and Norwich City – the latter two being away from home.

The Eagles seem to have recovered from their mini slump too as they’ve now been unbeaten in their last 3 matches at Selhurst Park following 3 defeats on the trot to Manchester City, Leicester City and Liverpool, who also happen to be the top three clubs in the Premier League.

A home record of 4-3-3 9/9 doesn’t look entirely dependable though, while goals have been few and far between; indeed, 8 of Crystal Palace’s 10 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals, with Palace also keeping 4 clean sheets.

Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal build on United result?

A 2-0 home win against Manchester United last weekend handed The Gunners and new manager, Mikel Arteta, a valuable and much-needed three points in the Premier League following a poor sequence of 4 matches without a win, or just 1 win from their last 12 matches overall.

Nevertheless, Arsenal’s win over United lifted them up into 10th place and although they’re still a long way off from where they want to be, the early signs under Arteta seem to be fairly positive. Overall, it’s been a distinctly average season from Arsenal thus far, but the visitors are still only 4 points adrift of 5th placed Manchester United, so there’s everything to play for in this second half of the season.

Arsenal will also be desperate to improve upon an average looking away record of 2-5-3 11/13 though which includes wins at Newcastle United and West Ham, but also defeats at Liverpool, Sheffield United and Leicester City, so perhaps the straight win here may be a little risky. Instead, 6 of Arsenal’s 10 away matches have also resulted in under 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

  • 8 of Crystal Palace’s 10 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals
  • 6 of Arsenal’s 10 away matches have also resulted in under 2.5 goals
  • The last 6 meetings between these two sides have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Being a local all-London clash and goals few and far between at Selhurst Park, this could be a low-scoring affair.
