Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Preview

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Selhurst Park

Date: 28th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Crystal Palace have emerged from being early relegation favourites to a team with a genuine chance of finishing close to the top ten.

The Eagles started their season with a seven game losing streak which left them rock bottom of the league table but they head into this game unbeaten in their last seven matches.

They are now out of the bottom three but not necessarily out of trouble yet as just 2 points separates them from the drop zone and they play Arsenal and Manchester City next.

They have improved greatly after the appointment of Roy Hogson as the former England manager has helped them go six home games unbeaten, despite losing each and every one of their first seven league games and failing score a single goal as well.

They have now scored 2 goals in each of their last six home games.

Arsenal played out another thrilling encounter last time out as they were held at home 3-3 by Liverpool.

The Gunners head into this game with their own defensive problems as displayed in that game against the Reds although their attack is one of the best in the division.

Away from home, they have not been at their best as they have won just twice in nine travels drawing three, and losing four.

Their form will give Palace confidence to attack them and the Gunners defence will most likely come under fire at some point in this game.

The Gunners have won four, drawn one and lost one of their last six meetings with Palace.
