Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Premier League predictions: tips, odds & team news
Crystal Palace and Arsenal continue their 2023/24 Premier League campaign when they meet at Selhurst Park on Monday (8pm, UK time).
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal odds
The appointment of club favourite Roy Hodgson ultimately paid off as Crystal Palace staved off relegation last term. His interim role has since become permanent and the Eagles will be hoping to improve on last season’s home record which read seven wins from 19 played while suffering five losses.
So far, so good. Palace won their first Premier League match this season, beating Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. In only one previous top-flight season the Eagles started with two wins in their first two matches, doing so in 2020/21 in Hogdson’s first spell in charge.
Arsenal came so close to ending a 19-year championship drought. Mikel Arteta’s men boasted the league’s best away record last term (12 wins and three draws across 19 road games).
A big reason behind their resurgence is forward Bukayo Saka who has featured in each of Arsenal’s last 81 Premier League games. If he plays in this match, he will equal Paul Merson’s club record of playing 82 in a row in the competition, set between February 1995 and February 1997.
