Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace Match Analysis and Prediction

Arsenal will be looking to make it four Premier League wins in a row for the first time since October 2018 this week when they welcome Crystal Palace. The match schedules for Thursday at Emirates Stadium with kickoff at 11 pm.

The Gunners seem to have hit a good run of form under previously under-pressure Mikel Arteta. On the other hand, Crystal Palace continues struggling with inconsistency and is worse off than their London rivals.

A turning point in Mikel Arteta’s stance at Emirates came on Boxing Day following their win over Chelsea. It has been a fantastic turnaround with the Gunners picking three wins since then. Wins over Brighton and West Brom in the league saw Arsenal rise to 11th on the table with 23 points.

The side recently qualified for the FA Cup’s fifth-round following a 2-0 win over Newcastle in extra time. The dependence on the youth seemed to pay off, with Smith Rowe setting up the first goal. Bukayo Saka and Gabrielle Martinelli proved a shining light at the end of the tunnel.

On the other hand, Roy Hodgson struggles with making a consistent side in the league. The side recently fell of the FA Cup’s fifth-round following a 1-0 defeat to Wolves. Their last win was a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Arsenal Team News

Gabrielle Martinelli picked up a knee injury ahead of their clash against Newcastle and remains unavailable for this match. Smith Rowe and Saka will retain their positions with Lacazette’s form pushing for a start this Thursday. We expect a back pairing of Mari and Holing, who recently signed a long-term contract.

Crystal Palace Team News

Hodgson might be without eighth players on their trip to Emirates, including Mamadou Sakho and Martin Kelly. With Gary Cahill and Scott Dann’s unavailability, Kouyate might get the nod at the heart of the defense.

Prediction and Odds

Palace might pack a surprise for the Gunners but face an in-form Arsenal side looking to make up for previous losses.
