The Gunners scored 22 goals, conceded 11, and pulled off four clean sheets in their past ten matches.

Crystal Palace are currently not the most scoring team in the Premier League, as they only found the back of the net four times in ten matches. This is an average of just 0.4 goals a game in which they conceded nine times, an average of 0.9 per game. They managed two clean sheets in of these.
