class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Looking solid in defence of late, Al Hain-Cole is backing the hosts to edge to victory over an Eagles side that have struggled for goals on the road
Arsenal will be aiming to maintain their strong recent form when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium for Monday’s Premier League clash.
After a difficult start to the campaign, the Gunners have rallied by winning four and losing none of their last five fixtures in all competitions.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace latest odds
Having lost just two of their last 21 matches against this opposition, Arsenal are 8/13 (1.62) favourites with bet365 to claim all three points here.
Patrick Vieira has lost just one of his last six matches in the league and can be backed at 19/4 (4.75) to come back to haunt his former club by overseeing a memorable win for Crystal Palace.
The last two meetings between this duo at this ground have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 29/10 (3.90) on them cancelling each other out yet again.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace first goalscorer
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in three of his six previous appearances against this opposition and is the 10/3 (4.33) favourite to open the scoring, while Emile Smith Rowe represents a tempting longer shot at 9/1 (10.0) after hitting the net in two of the last three home games.
Odsonne Edouard is the visitors’ 8/1 (9.0) front runner to break the deadlock, although Wilfred Zaha looks like better value at 9/1 (10.0) after scoring the first goal in two of his last four matches.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace preview
Having come under serious pressure following three defeats from the opening three Premier League games, Mikel Arteta seems to have turned things around in recent matches.
He has done this by first of all tightening up the defence, ensuring they have conceded just once in their last five matches in all competitions.
This record looks ominous for an Eagles team that have failed to score in three of their four matches on the road this season, losing three and drawing one of those.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace tips & predictions
On current form, Arsenal look well worth backing at 7/4 (2.75) to shut out Palace once again while securing a fourth consecutive victory in their own backyard.
