Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
Competition: Premier League
Date: 28 December 2017
Kick-off Time: 20:00 GMT
Venue: Selhurst Park, London
Crystal Palace currently has 16 points less than Arsenal, but it should be mentiond that the last season’s triumph of the team with as much as 3-0, because they have thus ended a series of seven defeats and one draw in duels with Arsenal. The current form of Crystal Palace is at a high level because they are in the series of three championship wins and five draws series, which, among other things, led the team to their long-awaited escape from the relegation zone.
All thanks are given to their coach, Hodgson, who brilliantly succeeded to find the extra strength in his players, both in defence and in the attack, since, in the last four games,they scored an average of two goals. However, Crystal Palace is still only 02 points away from the 18th Bournemouth, so it is expected that the team will try to stay undefeated against Arsenal. The defenders Fosu-Mensah, Ward, Sakho and Delaney and striker Wickham will be absent for this match.
Arsenal on the other side had a good match with Liverpool, in which they managed to return from the minus of 02 goals in six minutes, and then when they had a 3-2 lead, they received the third goal and eventually had to contend with just one point. And since it is their 3rd draw in the last four rounds, then it was quite logical to break the placement on the table so Arsenal currently occupy the 6th position, but with the same number of points as fifth Tottenham and one less than the fourth Reds.
As a result, Arsenal now will try to defeat Crystal Palace in this dual, which on the other hand plays very good lately, so, coach Wenger’s players, will have to play well to get to all the three points. Besides that, Arsenal's defence has shown a lot of weaknesses in the game with Liverpool, so coach, Wenger is expected to makes several changes in the starting lineup. The injured playrers are: defender Monreal, midfielders Ramsey and Cazorla, and striker Giroud.
