Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction
The Gunners admitted what was their second defeat of the season last week on the road after Sheffield United surprisingly secured all three points with a 1-0 scorecard. Despite creating plenty of chances in the final third, Unai Emery’s men failed to convert each of their attempts, ultimately making the trip back home empty-handed.
Nevertheless, Arsenal are still a tough side to take down at the Emirates Stadium. They are one of the only three teams left in the cluster to taste defeat on home soil. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts are on a two-match winning streak at home in the Premier League, the last of which was a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth.
Crystal Palace are right behind Arsenal on the ladder, separated by no more than a point. The visitors had an unbeaten run of their own brought to a halt in their most recent match at home after Manchester City slotted two unanswered goals past them.
Furthermore, the Eagles have been erratic on the road so far. And have admitted defeat in half of their last four outings. The away side have not been faring well in their previous visits to this venue either and have just one win to boast of from their last six trips here.
As such, Arsenal are the favorites to come out on top in this one. Additionally, the hosts have been guilty of being leaky at the back and have kept a clean sheet just once in their last nine games in the first division.
The away side, on the other hand, have scored four goals from their previous three outings alone. Taking into account that both teams have also found the back of the net in four of their last five head to head meetings here, by all means, expect goals down either end on Sunday.
