Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction and Odds: Preview
Arsenal has managed to turn the tide in their favor as Mikel Arteta has brought a sense of optimism it seems. The Spaniard seems to also have finalized his starting lineup with a number of changes.
The Gunners splashed pretty lavishly in the summer transfer market bringing in a number of players with the likes of Aaron Ramsdale and Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Ramsdale has been the preferred choice in the goal ousting Bernard Leno from his number one position while Tomiyasu has also found his place in the Gunners defensive setup.
Their opening day loss against new entrant Brentford had the team in shambles and subsequent loss to Chelsea and Manchester City had submerged the team to the bottom.
But they showed flashes of brilliance against Norwich City and Burnely and then completely dominated Tottenham Hotspur on their way to a 3-1 victory.
On the other side, Palace has managed to grind out only a single win and four draws which leaves them left reeling in 14th place.
Under the tutelage of former Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira, Palace has been trying to play a possession-based attacking football which is yet to yield results but if they can stick to it they will definitely showcase some eye-pleasing football.
Joachim Andersen, Conor Gallagher and Odsonne Edouard have embraced the new style and have been very influential in the new setup.
Edouard signed for the Eagles on the deadline day and has already found the net two times. He will be pitted against former teammate Kieran Tierney but will not let him an inch without a fight.
Yeah! He’s very good. I had the chance to play with him for two years and I enjoyed it. He makes a big impact on the left-hand side. He gave me a lot of assists so it was good.“
For 90 minutes it’s a game, it’s a fight. But I’ll speak with him after, for sure, because he’s still my friend.“
On asking about Vieira he replied,
Yeah, he’s still got it! Sometimes we play two-touch in training and he’s too good, he never loses. It’s been good working with him because he’s a big legend in France. It’s great to play for him, I can learn a lot from him.”
