Arsenal vs Crystal Palace / Premier League – The home team is a clear favourite to win and on top of it the Gunners need points more than the Palace. Arsenal is racing to reach the Champions League, it is the 4th and has the Europa League in its pocket. Crystal Palace is positioned in the bottom half of table and has eight points more than teams in the drop zone, so they are safe from that side. Their head-to-head played in the first part of season ended as 2-2 draw.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace begins 21.04.2019 at 17:00 CET
Arsenal is in good shape and has three-game winning streak. What can worry a bit is that last time when they played three good matches in a row and won they lost the fourth one to Everton. The Gunners hope to avoid the same scenario now, and the opponent is much easier and will enjoy the home-field advantage. Two out of three victories were won against Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Europa League with a clean sheet, which was definitely a nice result. They won Watford 1-0 in the previous round but it wasn’t easy despite having a player more on the pitch. New name on the list of injured is Ramsey, while Sokratis is suspended.
Probable lineups Arsenal: Leno – Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal – G. Xhaka, Torreira – Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Iwobi – Lacazette
They are still not mathematically secure but Crystal Palace is very close to achieve its objective for the season, and that is survival. They have eight points more than the first team below the red line and can play relaxedly at Emirates stadium, while if they win a point that would be just a plus for them. Crystal Palace played eight last rounds in rhythm win-lose, with addition of one more defeat in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup by Watford. They couldn’t do much against stronger rivals and they easily lost at home to Tottenham and Manchester City. Sakho and Tomkins are injured.
Probable lineups Crystal Palace: Guaita – Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Dann, van Aanholt – McArthur, Milivojevic, Kouyate – Townsend, Batshuayi, Zaha
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace PICK
Arsenal plays well lately and only occasionally receives goals. We expect to see high wall in front of their goal and several individuals in offensive mode. Crystal Palace is under no pressure but it didn’t do much against stronger rivals lately.
