Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when Arsenal and Crystal Palace face each other in the London derby on Thursday evening. The Gunners made a slow start to the season, but their recent performances are surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Arsenal are after their fifth consecutive win in all competitions, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Eagles.
Both Saka and Xhaka should be recalled to the starting XI after the duo came from the bench in the FA Cup win over Newcastle. Martinelli is rated doubtful for the match, while Partey and Gabriel should be fit to face Palace. The Eagles aim to bounce back from the FA Cup defeat to Wolverhampton, but given Arsenal’s current form, we predict that Mikel Arteta’s men are going to pick up all three points from the match. Arsenal are eyeing their first league win over Palace since January 20, 2018.
