Crystal Palace News and Form – Can injury-hit Eagles beat Arsenal?

Crystal Palace are struggling when it comes to fielding anywhere near the strongest starting eleven. There are fitness doubts over star player Wilfried Zaha. Midfielder Luka Milivojevic is definitely out because of a red card in their FA Cup defeat against Derby last weekend. The Eagles are on a three-match unbeaten run of form in the top flight (W1 D2), taking back to back 1-1 draw away at Southampton and Norwich. Three of Palace’s last five league games have ended in a 1-1 draw. Palace have only suffered one defeat in their last eight league outings (W3 D4) so have been hard to knock down.

They are unbeaten in three at Selhurst Park currently, winning two of those by one-goal margins against Bournemouth and West Ham. Overall this season on home turf in the top flight, Palace are W4 D3 L3. There has been a lack of goals by Palace this season. They have only scored 9 in 10 home games and they are the second-lowest scoring side in the top flight. Only 20% of Palace’s home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals. That’s because Palace have been good at the back, averaging under a goal per home game against them. In total, Palace have taken a clean sheet in 40% of their home fixtures. The half time draw is well worth a look, as eight of this season’s league fixtures at Selhurst Park have been level at the midway point.

Arsenal News and Form – Can Arsenal win at Crystal Palace?

Has the Arsenal revival under Mikel Arteta started? On New Years Day they secured an impressive 2-0 home win over Manchester United. While they faded away in the second half, they did more than enough to get the three points. That was just their second win in their last thirteen league fixtures, however. Away from home, there have been big struggles by the Gunners, at least in terms of getting wins. They are only W2 D5 L3 away from home in this campaign. But there has been a positive of current four-match unbeaten streak away from home by them (W1 D3).

Neither of Arsenal’s away wins this season were at teams starting the weekend inside the top half of the table, however. The Gunners have proven to be a goal-shy team on their travels, only scoring 11 in their 10 played on the road. Less than half of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals, which may be a decent trend to consider. Four of their six league victories this season (home and away) have happened by a one-goal margin. The Gunners have been trailing at the half time break in six of their ten games away from the Emirates this season in the EPL.
