Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 14 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners are going through a superb stretch at the moment, and are scoring goals left and right. After a period of struggles, it seems that they are determined to make up for lost time.
As of now, they are placed 11th in the table. But note that they are just six points away from a European spot, and just ten points away from the top-most position. There is still hope. The team could still qualify for the Europa, or even for the Champions League.
Meanwhile, the Glaziers are one of the weakest teams in the competition at the moment. They are going through a winless run, and their rare victories have come against teams placed in the relegation zone.
On top of that, Mikel Arteta’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.
Likely, expect Arsenal to emerge victorious this Thursday.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Arteta’s men recorded a 0-4 win on the road the last match-day, against West Brom. In the meantime, Roy Hodgson’s men registered a 2-0 win at home the past game week, against Sheffield United.
Going on, the Gunners are on a four-game winning run, and had registered a combined scorecard of 10-1, in the process.
At home, they are on a two-fixture winning run (scoring five goals during the while), and had failed to find the back of the net here just thrice in the whole of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their last ten overall match-ups, and they remained so in 11 of their past 15 road trips.
On top of that, Arteta’s men also have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored heavily in the meanwhile.
Taking into account these observations, expect Arsenal to emerge victorious this Thursday, and that too in style.
