Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals

  • Three of Arsenal's last four league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Arsenal secured a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace back in August.

Another reason that we have backed under 2.5 goals as our main prediction is that Crystal Palace have only scored once in their last three games against the Gunners.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction – Other tips

Correct Score: 2-0

  • Arsenal haven't scored more than two goals in any of their last six matches in all competitions.
  • We're not expecting Crystal Palace to score in this game as they will be without key players such as Michael Olise and Jordan Ayew.

  • The winger has netted two times in his last seven Premier League appearances, including Arsenal's last game against Fulham.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace team news

Arsenal

Arsenal took the lead after just five minutes away at Fulham in their last league game but Bukayo Saka's goal proved to be a false dawn for the title challengers. Fulham equalised just shy of the half-hour mark and scored what turned out to be the winning goal in the fifty-ninth minute, making it three league games without a win for Mikal Arteta's side.

Jurrien Timber, Fabio Vieira, Thomas Partey, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus are all injury concerns for the home side, while Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasu are both away on international duty.

Predicted Lineup: Raya (GK), Gabriel, White, Kiwior, Saliba, Ødegaard, Rice, Havertz, Nketiah, Saka & Martinelli

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace fell behind at home to Brentford last time out but recovered well to win the game with relative ease. Michael Olise equalised for the Eagles in the fourteenth minute and a goal from Eberechi Eze put Palace 2-1 up before the interval. Olise was on hand to score the only goal of the second half shortly before the hour mark to wrap up all three points for Roy Hodgson's men.

The Eagles look set to be without Cheick Doucoure, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Rob Holding, Sam Johnstone, Joel Ward and Michael Olise for the trip to the Emirates Stadium due to injury, while Jordan Ayew is representing Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Clyne, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Richards, Lerma, Eze, Édouard, Schlupp & Mateta

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Edward Nketiah

With Gabriel Jesus unlikely to play the full ninety minutes, if any, against Crystal Palace, the Gunners might call upon Edward Nketiah to lead the line.

Nketiah is never going to score a lot of goals but as a forward, he does work hard and is capable of winning games when provided with the right services. Nketiah has netted five league goals this season making him Arsenal's second-top goalscorer behind Saka, so the 24-year-old has proven his worth this season and could make all the difference against a Crystal Palace that are bound to tire in the second half following their FA Cup replay on Thursday night against Everton.
