Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Predictions

Crystal Palace will bounce into the game against the Gunners on Wednesday following their impressive victory over Aston Villa on the weekend. Roy Hodgson’s men trailed on two occasions to the Villa but prevailed as 3-2 victors at Selhurst Park. The victory closed the gap on 12th-placed Wolves who tasted defeat in north London at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Arsenal are still holding on to their slim hopes of a finish in a European spot for next season. The Gunners did not play on the weekend, but their victory over the in-form Chelsea pulled the north London side back into the fight for a top-six finish – albeit they will need a mini-miracle for that to happen.

Wilfried Zaha showed signs of returning to his best on the weekend as he netted the Eagles’ second goal of the afternoon. The Ivorian international had only scored two Premier League goals since the turn of the year going into the game on Sunday. With two games remaining he will be hoping he can add to his 11 league goals for the season.

With an extra few days off over their London rivals from south of the river, Arteta will be hoping his side can end the season on a positive following their disappointing league campaign being added to by Europa League exit against their former manager, Unai Emery. With fans returning for their final game of the season Brighton & Hove Albion, Arteta will be hoping a win on Wednesday can brighten the fans’ spirits.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal: Match Stats

Christian Benteke’s Crystal Palace is set to expire at the end of this season, and it appears the Belgian striker is doing his best Emmanuel Adebayor impression in ‘playing for a contract’. The 30-year-old has now scored nine times in the Premier League this season and three of those goals have come in his last three games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has endured a turbulent season this campaign with multiple reasons at the centre of his dip in form. Auabmeyang has netted three times against the Eagles in his five appearances against the south London side and will be looking to make up for the blank he fired against them back in January.
