Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace Picks

These two teams are set to kick off at 9 pm CEST today. The Emirates will be empty, but Arsenal will still have the slightest form of home turf advantage… though it doesn’t really matter that much for our Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace picks.

What does matter are stats, news, and other information about the teams, and that’s exactly the kind of info we’ll be featuring in the remainder of this piece.

Arsenal Picking up the Pace

Arsenal had a particularly rough patch of matches not that long ago. They were nearing the relegation zone and things were looking outright scary in Gunners’ camp. Luckily, they’re on an upwards spiral, having won three consecutive Premier League matches. They’ll be hoping for the fourth against Crystal Palace, but it will be everything but a straightforward task.

Arsenal and Crystal Palace are separated by a single point. Arsenal is in the eleventh place with 23 and Crystal Palace are in the thirteenth place with 22 points. This is basically their chance to skyrocket themselves near the top half of the Premier League table. Arsenal will be hoping Lacazette can find the net tonight, but it won’t be easy, that’s for sure!

A Win for Crystal Palace, Finally

It finally happened, boys and girls! Hodgson’s men finally won a Premier League match, following a five-match drought (three draws and two losses). Unfortunately for them, they’re going to in an uphill struggle against the Gunners. Not saying Arsenal is a mighty team by any means, but they have several things going for them; several things that make them the favorites.

For Starters:
They are the superior team on paper. Additionally, they are in better form too, having finally ended their losing slump. As stated earlier, they’re on a three-match winning streak and will be hoping to extend it. Statistically, Arsenal’s defensive line is much better than that of Crystal Palace. In seventeen matches, the Gunners have conceded ten fewer goals than Hodgson’s men. But, Crystal Palace has a lot of strength in the attacking portion of the game. They’ve scored two more goals thus far, with Wilfried Zaha leading the goalscoring charge with eight goals.

Andros Townsend has to be pointed out as the key Crystal Palace player. The 29-year-old English midfielder has been the most consistent player on the pitch, game in and game out. I’m sure he’ll have another splendid performance against Arsenal, though I doubt it’ll mean much in the end, result-wise.

Wrapping Things Up

Arsenal ought to be able to handle this up-and-coming Crystal Palace team. It’s going to be a hard-fought contest, one that probably won’t have a lot of goals to talk about after the final whistle. Still, I’m going to keep these Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace picks simple. No over/under BS here, only a simple match-winner on the Gunners:
