Arsenal stand at the 3rd position and they still have some theoretical chances to win the title, but it’s hard to believe that could happen. Leicester City have 13 points more than Arsenal, but team from London have one match less, so even if they win that game, 10 points look unreachable few rounds until the end of the season. However, Arsenal want to finish the season in the Top 3 and qualify in the Champions League directly. Manchester City have the same ambitions, so Arsenal are under pressure and they have to win this game. After two wins in a row, Arsenal took only one point against West Ham in the previous round (FT 3-3), so they will be fully motivated to take all three points this time upfront their supporters. Despite the fact that they don’t have big chances to win the title, their manager Arsène Wenger wants to win all games until the end of the season. “The only little chance we have is to give absolutely everything in every single game, starting on Sunday against Crystal Palace.” – said Wenger for the official Arsenal website.
Crystal Palace stand neat the relegation and if they finish the season with the good performance in the last few rounds they will stay in the best football league in England. Their recent form is very solid. In the last 3 matches they are unebaten and they are looking for another good result in London. They know it will be hard to beat Arsène Wenger men, but they have nothing to lost, so even if they lose that wouldn’t be a catastrophe because they have enough points more than the first team in the relegation zone. Crystal Palace have very poor records against Arsenal. In the last six Premier League matches between Arsenal vs Crystal Palace, Palace lost all six games. “Our home game against them was very, very tight, so you can only put your best display on. It’s difficult to win at the Emirates – I think they’ve only lost their three times this year – so, tough agenda.” – said their coach Alan Pardew.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace injuries and suspensions
Home team miss Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey. Good news for Arsenal is that Petr Cech has recovered from an injury and he will replace Ospina at the goal line. Visitors have no fresh injuries, but Emmanuel Adebayor and Connor Wickham are both doubtful for this game.
Home team are favorites to win this game, but visitors have nothing to lose and they will try at least to hit the net. They have managed to score against Arsenal in the last three matches, so they hope that can do it again. I expect interesting and open match between Arsenal vs Crystal Palace and at least three goals.
