Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace has always been considered a strong midfielder of the championship of England and this season the team will again confirm this status. The composition of the team is unlikely to allow the Londoners to fight for high places, but the struggle for survival of the team of Patrick Vieira should not threaten.

In the opening match of the new Premier League season, the Eagles will definitely try to please the local fans at home. To do this, they need to make the most of the chances at the gates of others and play in a disciplined and reliable way at their own possessions.


Arsenal, under the leadership of Mikel Arteta, finished fifth in the last season of the Premier League and did not qualify for the Champions League. A place in the top 4 of the standings will be a priority for the team in the new season, which means that the Gunners clearly cannot lose points often in matches in which they are considered favorites.

The Londoners did a good job in the transfer market this summer and added two players from Manchester City - Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko to their squad. Both newcomers will almost certainly play from the first minutes in their debut match and will try to loudly declare themselves.

This will be the first match of the new Premier League season and such a game should not disappoint fans of British football. Arsenal are considered the favorites for a future meeting, but in recent years the Gunners have been very unconvincing in matches against Crystal Palace. In the new duel, the Eagles are also planning to fight a more formidable opponent on their field. A good choice in this case seems to be a bet on "both teams to score" for 1.86.
