Arsenal visits Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park
Arsenal recorded their first two wins under the management of Mikel Arteta and now the Gunners are hungry for more. On Saturday Arsenal visits Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park. Let’s spend some minutes to examine this fixture during our English Premier League predictions.
Arsenal are in a good mood now after their win against Manchester United in the Premier League, followed by the elimination of Leeds United for the FA Cup. These two games marked Arteta’s first wins as a manager, since he replaced the sacked Unai Emery. Is Arsenal’s future bright with the former Spanish international? Well, only time will tell.
Because of Arsenal’s position in the league right now, the club can go only up now. At this moment the Gunners are 10th in the table with 27 points, so they will try to improve this. The Gunners’ main goal is to finish in the Top 4 and return to the Champions League, but they are going to need some real consistence in order to do it.
Against Leeds United for FA Cup used a 4-2-3-1 system with Alexandre Lacazette in attack and Mesut Ozil behind him. The only goalscorer in the game Reiss Nelson occupied the left win, while Nicolas Pepe started on the right one. We expect Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to return on the pitch on Saturday.
Crystal Palace are one position ahead of Arsenal in the league, being 9th with 28 points. Roy Hodgson’s team is having a pretty solid season so far. As long as they are in the Top 10, Crystal Palace are going to regard the season successful.
Palace made two draws in their last two Premier League games against Southampton and Norwich City. Can they now return on the winning column?
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Crystal Palace and Arsenal on Saturday. We wish you good luck.
