It’s a tough match to call between two teams at opposite ends of the table. Arsenal obviously have more quality, but that didn’t prevent them from losing 3-0 in their last visit to Palace back in April of last season.
However, in the thick of the Christmas period they have had the luxury of a 5 day rest since their last match, a thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool on Friday night. They also haven’t had to travel during that time.
Palace have beaten Arsenal in just 4 of 41 previous meetings, so it’s hard to see them doing so twice in a row. The Gunners will want to ensure they don’t get embarrassed again at Selhurst Park.
Arsenal face Crystal Palace in a London derby on Thursday night. It’s a match that if you look at the league table looks like a probable away win, but in the Premier League anything can happen and this will be a tough match for Arsene Wenger’s side.
The Gunners’ form has stuttered a little recently and has seen them fall to 6th. They did well to salvage a point against Liverpool from 2-0 down on Friday, but will feel they should have won after going 3-2 up.
Arsenal Form: DWWDDW
Palace have recovered really well after a nightmare start, which was officially the worst in Premier League history. They are unbeaten in 8 matches and have not lost at home since mid-September. They drew 1-1 at Swansea last time out.
Crystal Palace Form: DWWDDD
The two teams have met 41 times before, with Arsenal dominating the head-to-head with 26 wins. Palace have beaten the Gunners just 4 times in their history, including a 3-0 win in their last meeting back in April. The other 11 matches ended in draws.
Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey and Oliver Giroud, who could be out until February with a hamstring injury. Santi Cazorla is still out, meanwhile Crystal Palace are missing Mamadou Sakho, Damien Delaney, Conor Wickham and Joel Ward.
