Crystal Palace take on Arsenal on saturday in Selhurt Park with Alan Pardew's men looking to bounch back from a disappointing loss to Liverpool in the Fa Cup. Palace have had a resurrgence under Pardew and have managed to climb out of the relegation zone and up to thirteenth in the league table. Alan Pardew's side have played well in every game since the former Newcastle manager took over with Puncheon, zaha, campbell and chamakh in particular being impressive. Chamakh will have more reason that most to be involved tomorrow as the former Arsenal man will want to get some game time against his former team and would have extra motivation to get himself a goal.
Arsenal have won seven of the last eight and Arsene Wenger's team have looked more and more like a contender for the Champions League. With a semi favourable draw against Monaco in the last sixteen, Arsenal could have an outside shot at the Champions League title but more than likely they will continue their ever present in the Champions League with a strong finish to the current campaign. Olivier Giroud will lead the line for Arsenal and with Ozil and Cazorla pulling the strings from midfield Arsenal have looked very strong in recent weeks. There is a chance that Arsenal are slightly distracted by their up comign Champions league tie and this is not going to be an easy game.
I am going to take Crystal Palace +1 on the handicap here, I think Palace get something from this game as they have been excellent at home and Arsenal have a huge game against Monaco on Wednesday.
