Arsenal win and both teams score
1pt 13-5 general
Granit Xhaka remains on the sidelines while Gabriel Martinelli is uncertain.
Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson have been missing for a long time.
Patrick Vieira is revered among Arsenal supporters for the success he enjoyed with the Gunners during a nine-year stint at the club, but he returns to north London on Monday amid an exciting new project as manager of Crystal Palace.
Gunner legend Vieira arrived at Selhurst Park early in the season in hopes of taking the Eagles to the next level after an established spell under Roy Hodgson.
The Frenchman implemented a more adventurous style than that of the Hodgson era and the Eagles put on barnstorming performances in a 3-0 win over Tottenham and 2-2 draws with West Ham and Leicester.
The Eagles are averaging just over a goal per game, but summer additions Odsonne Edouard and Michael Olise have looked sharp and the progressive, high-intensity pressure approach taken by Vieira surely indicates goals in the London derby Monday in the Emirates.
Despite all of their offensive improvements, Palace still have work to do on the other end of the pitch and have achieved just one win in seven Premier League games this season, suffering heavy away defeats at Chelsea and Liverpool.
Arsenal also struggled against the top caliber of the elite at the start of the campaign, but responded with four wins and a draw in their last five games in all competitions, including a 3-1 loss to cape and toe. sword against North London rival Tottenham in their last home outing.
They appear to be the best bet to win this game armed with a home advantage and given their recent clean sheets against Norwich, Burnley and Brighton in the Premier League, punters may even anticipate another shutout.
But Palace offers a far more offensive boost than those three teams, and new goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’s best performances have somewhat masked the defensive shortcomings of Mikel Arteta’s side.
Only Newcastle and Norwich have a worse number of expected goals against Arsenal (13.45) this quarter and even in their goalless draw at Brighton last time around, Arsenal allowed the Seagulls 21 shots and a better attacking team would have made them to pay.
Palace’s quick attack should cause problems for the Gunners, so a bet on Arsenal to win and both teams to score could be the way to go.
Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams and another high-octane affair looks likely between two teams who, despite showing signs of promise, are still in the midst of transition.
Arsenal have lost just one of their last seven games in all competitions.
