Tip Arsenal - Crystal Palace

Prediction published on October 15, 2021 at 8:54 PM - Modified on October 17, 2021 at 5:50 PM

Arsenal are unbeaten since suffering the 5-0 loss to Manchester City and as they host Crystal Palace in this London derby, they will be out to claim three points. The Gunners started the weekend paced 11th in the standings with 10 points while Crystal Palace have seven points, in 14th place. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last five matches, and have won four of those; their last outing ended in a 0-0 draw with Brighton, the fourth clean sheet they managed in five matches. Before their draw with Brighton, Arsenal had managed four straight wins earlier and that draw is thus the only game they failed to score in, in the last five matches. At home, they have two straight wins, and four wins in the last five, with the only defeat being against Chelsea. This game against Palace hasn’t been the easiest for Arsenal in their recent matches; they have only one win in the last six meetings. Four have ended in draws and they’ve lost once. The Gunners have some of the best attacking talent in the Premier League but they haven’t scored much this season. In their seven league matches, they have five goals, which is only better than the bottom placed Norwich’s tally. This is the last game of round 8 and the Gunners also play the first game of round 9. If they can win this game and then beat Aston Villa on Friday, then they'll go fourth in the Premier League.

Former Arsenal skipper Patrick Vieira is in charge at Crystal Palace and having managed his only win so far over Tottenham Hotspur, he will want to beat another North London side. However, his team goes to this game winless in the last three matches, the last having been a 2-2 draw with Leicester City. Palace have one win in seven league matches, and in the eight matches they’ve played this season, they have two clean sheets only. They have failed to score in four of the last eight matches, but in the last five they’ve only failed to score once. They have played four away matches this season and are winless in all of them, losing three. Palace have failed to score in three of the four away matches and conceded two or more goals in the three. In the Premier League, they have four losses and a draw in five away games and have managed just one clean sheet in their last 13 away.
