- Arsenal v Crystal Palace (Both Teams To Score - Yes)

Arsenal are on a three-match winning streak in the Premier League and take their run of victories into a Friday night league clash against Crystal Palace. The Eagles are unbeaten in back-to-back games claiming four points from six on offer. Both teams played in the FA Cup third round at the weekend with differing results.
The Gunners host Newcastle United at the Emirates where they claimed a 2-0 win. Although the win sounds easy enough, Mike Arteta’s team needed extra-time to claim the two-goal victory. Crystal Palace fell to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Friday night, 1-0. Adama Traore’s brilliant first-half strike stood up as Crystal Palace failed to show any kind of cutting edge in the final third.
Arsenal are just six points off of fifth-placed Manchester City going into the weekend. However, with their rivals for the top five having games in hand, Arsenal face an uphill battle to make it into Europe for next season.
Crystal Palace are lower midtable currently, but sit 11 points above the relegation zone. The Eagles have taken 22 points from 51 on offer. Roy Hodgson’s team rebounded well in the league after their 7-0 loss to Liverpool prior to Christmas. Can Crystal Palace get points away to Arsenal on Thursday night? Crystal Palace are unbeaten in four straight league matches versus Arsenal.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Betting Odds
Arteta’s side have not played well at the Emirates this season. Just 10 points from 24 have been taken at the Emirates by the Gunners this season. Arteta’s team have taken four points from their last six at home, however. There is improvement happening at Arsenal, especially with their four previous matches at home ending in losses. Just one of their last six games at the Emirates in the league finished in a win.
Despite their poor home record and Crystal Palace’s recent good form versus Arsenal, the Gunners are favourite to win according to leading sportsbooks. Arsenal are at odds of 11/20 to win at full-time. Arsenal have not defeated Crystal Palace at home since the 2017-18 league campaign. Their last two matches versus Crystal Palace at home ended in a draw and loss respectively.
Crystal Palace have obtained 10 points from 24 on the road this season. The Eagles have scored 11 goals and conceded 14 times on their travels. Four of their last five road matches ended without a win. Leading sportsbooks have Crystal Palace at odds of 6/1 to win away to Arsenal on Thursday night. Despite the odds, Crystal Palace went to the Emirates during the 2018-19 season and won 3-2. Last season, the Eagles grabbed a 2-2 draw, coming from a goal down in the second half for a point.
Three of the last four matches between the clubs finished in draws. Thursday night’s match is at odds of 16/5 to finish in a stalemate for the fourth time in five games between Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Hodgson’s team have drawn four of 17 matches in the Premier League. Arsenal have drawn just twice.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Team News
Arteta has just three injuries going into the match on Thursday night. Centre-back Gabriel could return to the team in time for kickoff. He will undergo a fitness test prior to the match to prove his availability. Thomas Partey could finally return to the Arsenal squad.
The summer £45 million signing is recovering from a thigh injury. Arteta is hopeful Partey will be fit to play having appeared in just five league matches thus far. Partey has been a major bust for the Gunners after his big-money move. Gabriel Martinelli is currently ruled out through a fresh ankle injury.
Last week, Arsenal joined the list of football clubs borrowing money from the British government during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Gunners borrowed £120m to ease cashflow issues in spite of owner Stan Kroenke being worth more than £7 billion. The loan must be paid back in the next six months and apparently won’t prevent Arteta from dipping into the transfer market.
Hodgson once again has a long list of players suffering from injury. Centre-back Gary Cahill remains in doubt due to a thigh injury. Scott Dean is also a doubt due a muscle injury of his own. Connor Wickham, Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Kelly, Wayne Hennessey and Nathan Ferguson all remain ruled out of action due to long-term injuries.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 1/1 - BET NOW
Crystal Palace have played well against Arsenal in recent seasons. That trend should continue this week as the Eagles play Arsenal in an exciting match at the Emirates. Five of the last six Premier League matches in the league finished with both teams finding the back of the net.
Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime @ 6/5 - BET NOW
Alexandre Lacazette has seven goals in 14 appearances this season for Arsenal. The striker has been on a tear after Arteta finally began playing him in a natural striker position. Lacazette has scored four goals in his last four league matches. Fellow forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has struggled this season after becoming one of the league’s highest paid player. Aubameyang is looking up at Lacazette in the goal scoring charts with just three strikes.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 20/23 - BET NOW
Last season’s match at the Emirates was a thriller with Crystal Palace coming back from two-goals down to draw 2-2. Six of the last seven matches between these clubs in the league ended with over 2.5 goals scored. Arsenal’s defence has allowed Crystal Palace to score goals in recent seasons and that trend could occur once more.
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has a bone to pick with Arsenal after being overlooked for Nicolas Pepe in 2019. Zaha could play one of his best matches of the season versus Arsenal. The Gunners should be able to get a result, however. Arsenal should claim a win or draw at home against Crystal Palace to extend their unbeaten run.
