Arsenal and Crystal Palace face off on Monday in an English Premier League showdown at Emirates Stadium. When these two teams last faced off, the final score was 2-2.
Arsenal currently sits in 13th place in the standings having picked up ten points. Arsenal got out to a very slow start to the season, but they have been playing a lot better as of late. Arsenal has picked up at least a point in each of the last three games, and two of those games were victories. Two games ago against Tottenham the offense was strong, scoring three goals. In the last game, Arsenal couldn’t get the offense going against Brighton, but the defense was strong and that led to the 0-0 draw. Arsenal has scored five goals total while the defense has given up ten goals. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the best player for Arsenal scoring two goals.
On the other side of this matchup is Crystal Palace who sits in 14th place in the standings having picked up seven points. In each of the last two games, Crystal Palace came away with the draw. In the last game against Leicester City, Crystal Palace fell behind 2-0 but they scored two goals after the 61st minute, and that led to the one-point victory. Crystal Palace has scored eight goals total while the defense has given 11 goals total. Wilfried Zaha, Conor Gallagher, Odsonne Édouard have all scored two goals total.
Crystal Palace has been involved in high-scoring games, and there will be plenty of runs scored in this game. I expect this to be a lot like the Leicester City for Crystal Palace where there are a couple of goals scored by both teams. Back the over to cash.
