Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Match Preview and Team News
Arsenal had gone seven league games without a win and dropping down the table. However, the last three and an FA Cup tie have all been won with ten goals scored and just one conceded. However, a closer look at the opposition is needed before confirming Arsenal are fully back on track. Their three league wins have come against Chelsea, Brighton, and West Brom, not an in-form team in sight there. The same goes for their FA Cup opponents Newcastle United, and now they face Crystal Palace. Arsenal has at least ended their terrible run of form at the Emirates. They have four points from their last two home league games and will be confident of getting another win here. With another home game against Newcastle, their hopes of making it into the Champions League will be increasing even more. Joseph Willock has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Ainsley Maitland-Niles shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in, he has good dribbling, speed is his advantage, he is the starter in every game, and last season he scored several important goals.
Crystal Palace is having its usual inconsistent season. They are 14th but 11 points clear of the bottom three and only seven points off the top four. They had gone five league games without a win before beating bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United at home. Only three points had been earned from those five games, the kind of poor run that Palace always seems to have at least a couple of times a season. The weekend saw them beaten 1-0 at Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup. Away form has seen just two wins in the last seven, both against sides currently in the relegation zone. Eberechi Eze shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him.
