Crystal Palace v Arsenal: Gunners to edge London Derby

| 28.12.2017

Arsenal travel the short distance to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park tonight in the Premier League.

Palace are 16/5 for the win, with Arsenal at 4/5. You can back the Draw at 14/5.

The Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways after their enthralling 3-3 draw with Liverpool last week.

However, they’ll have to do it the hard way in South London. The Eagles are unbeaten in eight league games and look decent again under Roy Hodgson.

The former England boss has presided over five draws and three wins in those games.

Palace beat Arsenal in this fixture last season back in April. That was their first league win over the Gunners at Selhurst since 1979.

There’s little or nothing to choose from between the two sides on current form. But it’s difficult not to back Arsene Wenger’s side at a generous-looking 4/5.

After all, the only side the North Londoners have lost to in the last eight was Manchester United.

And the highest-ranked side Palace have beaten on their current run has been Leicester City.

Arsenal’s leaky defence was fully on show in their calamitous but highly-entertaining draw with Liverpool.

But Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, and Alexandre Lacazette all looked dangerous in that goal-laden tie.

Palace are on-song in attack, too, with Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha on the scoresheet in recent weeks.

Both Teams To Score and Arsenal to win is 11/5, while Arsenal to win and Over 2.5 Goals is 6/4.

Germany International Ozil has looked excellent in the previous eight games or so.

The former Real Madrid attacker scored against the Reds and is 9/4 to find the net anytime here again.

Zaha has scored four goals this season and can cause the Gunners plenty of problems on home soil.

The Ivory Coast international is 13/5 to find the net anytime.
