Arsenal and Crystal Palace meet at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, 21st April and Arsenal will be determined to secure the full three points.
Arsenal are hosting Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium this weekend and the hosts will be determined to secure the full three points. Arsenal are locked in a battle for a fourth place finish with Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester United, and every point counts. There is less pressure on Crystal Palace, and this may be what gives them a chance.
Arsenal have been in good form recently, their one slip up being a 1 – 0 loss to Everton earlier this month. That aside, they have been impressive in both the Premier League and the Europa League. Crystal Palace have been struggling somewhat, while they have recently defeated Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town, they have failed to perform against the top teams, losing to both Manchester City and Spurs.
The teams last played in October last year with the game ending in a 2 – 2 draw and Arsenal won their two meetings before that. Crystal Palace last defeated Arsenal in January 2017 when they won 3 – 0. The pressure is on Arsenal this time, but given their recent form, it seems likely that Palace fans will be left disappointed.
