Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
Arsenal’s bid for the Premier League title is but over after the Gunners drew 3-3 at West ham last time out and league leaders Leicester won 2-0 at struggling Sunderland. The Foxes are now 13 points clear of the Gunners, although Arsene Wenger’s side do have a game in-hand.
Arsenal’s form has picked-up of late, as Wenger’s side have won two of their last three top-flight games. The Gunners home form has not been great, as they have recorded just one win in their last home games in all competitions.
However that one win came in a 4-0 hammering of Watford in their last home game. Arsenal are odds of 4/11 with Bet365 to win this clash.
Arsenal’s Nigerian youngster Alex Iwobi has been impressive in recent games and can be backed to score at any time during this clash at odds of 5/2 with Betfred.
The visitors are slowly but surely moving away from the relegation zone and are now 11 points clear of the dreaded drop zone. The Eagles are unbeaten in two games following a 1-0 win over Norwich and a midweek goalless draw against Everton.
That two game unbeaten run represents a real improvement in form for Alan Pardew’s side, who had endured a miserable 2016. The Eagles look like real outsiders to gain the win at the Emirates Stadium, but they can be backed at odds of 9/1 with BetVictor to claim an unlikely win.
If you fancy this game to end in a draw then that is available at odds of 9/2 with Bet365.
Despite Palace’s slight improvement in recent form, I really cannot see past a home win in this clash and the Gunners are of course odds of 4/11 at Bet365 to pick-up the win.
