Crystal Palace vs Arsenal – In form Arsenal to collect all three points against Crystal Palace today.
Mikel Arteta will head to Selhurst Park for the Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Premier League clash in a bid to maintain his fine start and to rack up his third win on the trot.
The reverse of this game at the Emirates will always be remembered as the game that Granit Xhaka fell out with the fans and the Swiss midfielder might want to make a statement here.
Arteta has managed to instil discipline where Arsenal has lacked it all season, that is at the back.
Their 2-0 win over Manchester United showed just how good he is in terms of in-game management and I expect another masterclass from him today.
Crystal Palace is dealing with many injuries ahead of this game but they are unbeaten in their last three league games. It will be a tough game.
Arsenal hasn’t done so well away from home this season, but this will only be Mikel Arteta’s second away game and it would be unfair to burden him with previous away form.
Apart from Calum Chambers, Kieran Tierney, and Hector Bellerin, Mikel Arteta has a fully-fit team to work with and the last two weeks will have given him enough opportunities to have a greater look at his players.
Palace is always a hard side to beat, but I expect Arteta to come up with the perfect plan to outsmart Hodgson and take all three points back to the Emirates.
I am going with an Arsenal win by a scoreline of 3-1.
