Crystal Palace vs Arsenal betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

Crystal Palace is on the cusp of a new direction when Roy Hodgson takes up his position on the touchline at Selhurst Park for the final time with the former England manager leaving the club in the summer, ushering in badly-needed adjustments. Visiting Arsenal, despite the overall sentiments surrounding their season, are still mathematically in with a chance at a top-seven finish but will need to win their final two outings and hope for help around them.

Betting prediction: Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

Arsenal comes into proceedings seemingly revitalised for a late-season push that could see their chances of a top-seven finish come down to the wire depending on results elsewhere. The Gunners have won three in succession in the Premier League (with two clean sheets) while losing just once in their last six (4-1-1) and posting one of the best records in the division post-Christmas. Crystal Palace is safe from relegation but has nothing to aim for here, but their comeback result against Aston Villa is proof-positive that they will not lay down despite their season already being concluded. These two have been even in their recent meetings (1-4-1), but Arsenal looks the better side at current and that should carry them over the line.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

Correct Score: Arsenal 2-0 

With six goals across their three-match winning run of late, Arsenal could be poised for another multi-goal haul against a Crystal Palace backline that is one of the leakiest in the Premier League this season (61). In the four wins that have come during their recent overall form, the Gunners are averaging 2.25-goals/match while boasting the third-best defensive record in the league. A 2-0 result would certainly add up here.

2 or More Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

He may only have two Premier League goals in his last seven outings, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains Arsenal’s most potent goal-scorer despite Alexandre Lacazette being the club’s league-leading goal-scorer. Aubameyang’s hat-trick against Leeds United still serves as evidence of how difficult he is to shackle when he is on it, and should he be given the nod ahead of Lacazette (as he did against Chelsea) in conjunction with Crystal Palace’s struggles at the back, Aubameyang could find a considerable amount of joy.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Match preview

It has been a job well done by Roy Hodgson. There may not have been any trophies involved, or dream runs into Europe, but Crystal Palace not only avoids the drop under his watch but remained a competitive mid-table side for four seasons. But now that the club must kick on in the wake of his departure at the end of the season, the question of who should come to replace him will loom large and it is a decision that the club brass cannot afford to get wrong.

There have been a few names thrown into the mix already, with the likes of Eddie Howe, Steve Cooper, and Sean Dyche all being mentioned, but the headline candidate seems to be former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, which could actually prove to be an astute appointment by the club. Though he failed to stand the test of time at the club where he built his legacy on the pitch as a player, there was a time where many thought Lampard would succeed on the touchline at Stamford Bridge and if not for a down period that caused his stock to fall rapidly to the point where he lost his job, he would likely still be employed.

But Lampard could very well tick all the boxes having done a good job to place faith in the Chelsea youth pipeline, which could be something Palace tries to continue to implement at Selhurst Park. Additionally, with the suggestion that Lampard did not have control of transfers at the Bridge, the assumption that he would have the lion’s share of responsibility in that arena with Palace to build a squad in his image – given the number of players that are out of contract in the summer – could provide additional incentive for him. They may not be Chelsea, but Crystal Palace could be the perfect place for him to quickly get back on track with his managerial career, while the cost-benefit for the club could certainly be viewed as being in their favour.

Arteta accountability is the first of many necessary steps for Arsenal

No one, not even his staunchest supporters, would ever sit back and tell you that they felt Mikel Arteta was capable of leading the club back to glory in his first full season on the touchline at Arsenal. Despite some of the talent on offer at the Emirates, Arteta – for all his good work while being on Pep Guardiola’s staff at Manchester City – is still very much a green manager regardless of how many plaudits he has received for his footballing brain. As first-time jobs go, Arsenal is a massive undertaking for anyone that has never been entrusted with leading a club from a managerial standpoint, so perhaps it is no surprise that, thus far, Arsenal shows no signs of being a top-four side.

Arteta himself has spoken out about the need for him to shoulder responsibility for the mistakes he has made this season, in what is a continuous learning process for the former Gunners midfielder. Unlike some other managers who would rather deflect blame onto their players time and again, Arteta has not shied away from holding himself accountable. And despite the mistakes he has made – and there have been quite a few – Arsenal has still shown impressive signs of progression post-Christmas in the form table that have them as a top-four contender. Things are far from perfect at the Emirates still, and with the disappointing nature in which the club has been ousted from all cup competitions this season while going through a poor spell of league form that had them as low as fifteenth, there is still cause for optimism on the whole.

Mathematically the Gunners are still capable of achieving a top-seven finish, and a win over Crystal Palace could see them potentially jump up to eight and in striking distance of higher places; all things depending on others around them, of course. The question still remains how Arsenal will be able to cope in the wake of Arsène Wenger’s retirement from management, but many will be hoping that recent improvement is the first step of many that could lead to a revitalization period that is desperately needed in north London.

Crystal Palace team news vs Arsenal

Roy Hodgson’s final team selection at Selhurst Park will unfortunately still be without some key assets as he looks to close the book on his time at Crystal Palace.

Mamadou Sakho, Nathan Ferguson, James MacArthur, and Connor Wickham are all sure to miss out through injury. Doubts surround both Luka Milivojević and Patrick van Aanholt as well, with James McCarthy coming into the team again to replace Milivojević as he did against Aston Villa should the Serbian not pass-fit. Nathaniel Clyne also faces a late assessment.

Arsenal team news vs Crystal Palace

Mikel Arteta should look to resume normal service with his team selection for the short away day across London with Arsenal still in with a slim chance at a top-seven finish.

David Luiz will certainly miss out through injury, while both Granit Xhaka and Héctor Bellerín are doubtful but will be subject to late tests to see if they can – at the very least – make the bench against Palace.
