Premier League

After an opening three losses and three wins in a row, Arsenal also played their first draw of the new season. The clash in the south of England with Brighton ended goalless in heavy rain, but coach Arteta was pleased. Arsenal have not conceded in the third of their last four league games and their highly negative score (5:10) is affected by the debacle at Man City.

In the London derby this time the Gunners welcome Crystal Palace led by their former captain Patrick Vieira. The visitors remain behind expectations, having won only one game this season (1-4-2), although the former French midfielder's target was the top half of the table. Nothing is lost and Palace proved their determination in the last round - they were down 0:2 at home to Leicester after an hour of play, but managed to equalise. The same result (2:2) was also the result of the previous away London derby, which Palace played at West Ham.

Arsenal and Crystal Palace both beat Tottenham 3-0 at home and neither of them would be angry for a similar result this time. The fact that no one will have it easy is evidenced by the even score of the last six duels (1 win for Arsenal, 1 win for Palace and 4 draws). Now, the home team could be happier as their improvement looks more credible and overall more stable than Palace's performances.

My bet:
Arsenal @ 1.61 (bet365)

EDIT: odds on Arsenal to win go up @ 1.70 (bet365)

Arsenal did not start the season well at all, losing their first three league games and scoring their first goal after more than 336 minutes. However, the Gunners have subsequently got back on their feet with a 3-1-0 score in their last four games.

It's clear to everyone that the offense needs the most work, and five goals scored in seven games is a terrible number with the quality of offense they have. Slight improvement was seen in the last home game against Spurs (3-1) where they played some nice football. Against Crystal Palace, they are favourites, they are getting into form and will go for the three points.

Crystal Palace are playing a more offensive style of football this season and goals are falling in their games. They have brought in some interesting signings like Edouard from Celtic who has two goals in four games but it could have been much more. He had two good chances at Liverpool and hit the crossbar last round against Leicester (2-2).

The goals would have suited this game.

Prediction:
Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.90 (bet365)
