Team News

Crystal Palace
Arsenal
  • Christian Benteke returns from suspension for the home side and should slot in up front, but Roy Hodgson looks set to be without five injured players on Thursday night.
  • Shkodran Mustafi is expected to replace Nacho Monreal in defence after he was forced off at half-time in Friday's 3-3 draw with Liverpool, while Sead Kolasinac should also return at left-back.
  • Arsenal have had four full days to recover for this match against Crystal Palace, which should mean few changes from Arsene Wenger.
  • Danny Welbeck may rotate with Alex Iwobi in the front line, but Olivier Giroud is still sidelined.

Prediction

  • Crystal Palace's unbeaten run extended to eight games at the weekend but Roy Hodgson would have been disappointed only to have got a point at home to bottom side Swansea. The Eagles could be back in the bottom three by the time this match starts.
  • Arsenal did well to come back from 2-0 down against Liverpool to draw 3-3 on Friday but questions must be asked why they went 2-0 down at home in the first place. Defensive mistakes continue to stifle progress for Arsene Wenger's side. They could be four points adrift of the top four by the time this game starts.
  • Arsenal have struggled at Selhurst Park in recent games and were thrashed 3-0 on their last visit. This is by no means an easy game for Arsenal despite what the league table might suggest. Everyone else would have played by this match and that will bring additional pressures to both teams. An entertaining game should be in the offing.

  • Zaha had a shot on target.

  • I played it, for 5 i took 72,50 , i can ear when it sounds clear .... Thsnks who scored even if i dont follow you third of thé times

  • And if you thought the arsenal clue was a lucky guess see more of the intro that's not the only clue there are lot more correct results or people who will score in the intro for example see the intro where rooney is and pep guardiola is pointing at him and guess who scored the first goal in that match with man city vs everton rooney !!! and they also show pogba and benitez and guess who scores in man u vs newcastle match after returning from inury pogba!!!

  • @RemyLebeu nice research man keep it up

  • I think this result was predicted in the match of the day intro if anyone who watches match of the day see the intro where right at the beginning it shows arsenal and palace keep an eye on the clock it shows the clock at 3o'clock which could mean arsenal will score 3 goals and it even shows sanchez celebrating meaning he will score in this match and benteke putting 2 fingers up which could mean palace will score 2 goals all the clues is there 3 goals for arsenal sanchez to score and palace to score 2 and match of the day intro is showing it.

  • Well done josh wright from who scored for getting exact score 2-3 correct. More correct scores like this in 2018 please and you will have a lot of happy followers.
