Crystal Palace v Arsenal Match Preview & Trends

Gunners hoping to spoil Selhurst party

As the fans return to Selhurst Park, neither side has much to play for on this occasion but it will be memorable for both managers and each set of players. Everyone involved will appreciate the atmosphere generated and want to give them a good contest. 

Crystal Palace have only won one of their last 5 home games against Arsenal and there has been more goals in the first half in 50% of Palace’s home games this season. The Eagles have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 3 home games and have drawn their last 3-times against Arsenal. In fact, Hodgson’s side have drawn 4 out of the last 6 matches against The Gunners. If Crystal Palace win, they would reduce the gap with Arsenal to an 8-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of a 3-match winning streak for The Gunners.

Arsenal have been undefeated in their last 5 away matches and have scored in each of these fixtures. The Gunners have now scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 3 away matches. At least one first-half goal has been scored in each of Arsenal’s last 8 away games in a row and they have scored in the second half in each of their last 6 matches away from home. 41% of Arsenal’s Premier League away games this season have seen both sides score before halftime.
