Crystal Palace – Arsenal : Preview & Prediction
Crystal Palace, whose infirmary is currently full (Benteke, Sakho, Cahill to name a few), has not won since the day after Christmas. The Eagles recorded 2 league draws in Southampton (1-1) and Norwich City (1-1) and then were eliminated in the FA Cup against Derby County (0-1) at home this Sunday. Hodgson’s side will have to be wary of an Arsenal team that has regained confidence and results since the arrival of Arteta as coach. The Gunners have just won 2 in a row, the first since the beginning of October! Lacazette’s partners thus beat Manchester United (2-0) at the Emirates Stadium and eliminated Leeds (1-0) also at home in the FA Cup. With only one defeat in its last 5 outings, the London club seems to find serenity in this game and thus returns in the race for Europe to only 4 units from Manchester United, 5th. Another victory at Selhurst Park would allow the Gunners to maintain this great momentum.
No less than 8 absent in the ranks of Crystal Palace (Cahill, Sakho, Benteke …)!.
