Table topping Arsenal will be looking to extend their lead at the summit of the Premier League standings as they prepare to host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium in London.
Arsenal- The Gunners will be looking to bounce back strongly after their shock exit from the Europa League on penalties at the hands of Sporting Lisbon. Domestically, Mikel Arteta’s sides’ form and confidence has been great. They have won their last five league games on the bounce with their most result domestic result being a 3-0 thrashing of Fulham.
Arsenal are top of the log with 21 wins from 27 games. They have a five point advantage over second placed Manchester City.
Crystal Palace- This is proving to be yet another average season for the Eagles. They look set to avoid relegation but also unlikely to challenge for European football. Concerning for Patrick Viera’s side is that they have lost their last three league games, the most recent of which was a 1-0 loss to Brighton. They have also not scored in their last four league games.
