Arsenal will be hoping that the international break hasn’t stifled their momentum, which had been built up following a string of impressive performances. On the other hand, Crystal Palace has struggled on the road this season, picking up just one point from three league games away from home and losing the Carabao Cup to Watford at Vicarage Road. Here is our expert guess on Arsenal vs Crystal Palace football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.
For the visit of Crystal Palace, only Granit Xhaka is injured in the Arsenal squad.
Albert Sambi Lokonga is his most likely replacement in the middle of the park.
On the right, Nicolas Pepe is attempting to force his way into the starting XI, but Mikel Arteta should stick with Bukayo Saka.
Without Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson, the Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira returns to Arsenal.
Last time out, the Eagles came back from a 2-0 deficit to grab a point against Leicester, with Jeffrey Schlupp and Michael Olise, who both scored off the substitute, vying for starting spots.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Arsenal underwent a poor start to the season but have been unbeaten in five games in all competitions, including four consecutive wins.
Although Crystal Palace has only one win from their first seven games they had a good start under Patrick Vieira. However, the squad has plenty of fighting spirit as evidenced by their 2-2 draw with Leicester earlier this month.
Arsenal’s new-found defensive determination, however, should help them win their fifth game in a row on Monday night.
In their last five road encounters, Crystal Palace have conceded at least two goals (Premier League).
In Crystal Palace’s last three away games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Premier League).
Crystal Palace have failed to win their last 5 away matches (Premier League).
Arsenal possible starting lineup: Ramsdale; Tierney, Gabriel, White, Tomiyasu; Lokonga, Partey, Rowe, Odegaard, Saka; Aubameyang
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Milivojevic, McArthur; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha
