The prediction of Crystal Palace and Arsenal comes before the match of the 1st round of the Premier League. This game will be played on August 5th, at Selhurst Park, England. In this match overview, we bring you betting tips and accurate predictions of results based on the analysis of these two sides.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Match Preview and Team News
Crystal Palace comfortably avoided relegation in Patrick Vieira’s first season in charge. Still, the Frenchman will now be expected to build on an excellent 12th-place finish by guiding the Eagles into the top half of the table. Also, when facing the ‘big six’ at Selhurst Park last season, Palace fared rather well. They thumped Spurs and Arsenal 3-0, beat Manchester United 1-0, and held Manchester City to a goalless draw – only narrowly losing to Liverpool and Chelsea. Palace has so far brought in Ducourt from Lens, Richards from Bayern Munich, and Johnston from West Brom but needs to add a couple more before the end of August. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be a challenge to keep him because many big clubs want him. Jean-Philippe Mateta enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. The Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this match, thanks to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Arsenal missed out on the Champions League last season by 2pts, finishing behind their arch-rivals Tottenham. Arteta will have been tasked with breaking into the top 4 this time around, and the Spaniard has so far brought in three major signings to help him do that, Jesus and Zinchenko from Man City and Porto’s Fabio Vieira. The Gunners have an ambition for the top-four finish, and they would be very disappointed in the case of failure. Bukayo Saka shows his 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 he scored several important goals last season. Thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection, the Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this game.
