Crystal Palace v Arsenal Preview

The Gunners seem to have found their ground after the introduction of new coach Mikel Arteta. Before his reign, Arsenal was in the bottom half of the table and was playing some pretty shambolic football. That's no more. The Spanish technician has managed to transform the side's fortunes and turned the Gunners back to their attractive style of play reminiscent of the days under Arsene Wenger.

Overall, it has been a rocky season for Arsenal with 27 points after 21 games (W6 D9 L6) and before their 2-0 win over Manchester United, they were on a 5-game winless run and in the bottom half of the table. Some resurgence of sorts has seen them win two games in a row, their most recent being a 1-0 hard-fought win over Championship side Leeds in domestic cup affairs.

There is a lot of belief from the Gunners camp and a strong finish to the rest of the season is just what Arteta will be eyeing. Derbies are never predictable especially in the Premier League and it will be interesting to see the two almost similar teams level up. The Gunners will be out for maximum points given their difficult upcoming fixtures against Sheffield United and Chelsea while Crystal Palace will have the home crowd backing them up for glory.

Crystal Palace is outdoing itself this season. The Roy Hodgson led side are well in line for a top-six berth. Should they win here, they will be tied on points with 5th placed Manchester United. Last season 12th place finish will be bettered if the Eagles continue their winning ways.

The London club seems to have hit a rocky patch in recent times though with only one win after six outings. This has seen them drop valuable points following a string of draws with even teams like bottom-placed Watford. Their gainful momentum must have cost the Palace players with fatigue largely blamed for their loss of form.

Their most recent match was against a Championship side, Derby, who came out with the win in a 1-0 outcome. It might be a blessing in disguise as all Roy Hodgson's focus will be on the league. Palace, should they not get back to their winning ways, will blow away an otherwise successful first half of the season.

One eye will be on the upcoming Manchester City fixture so maximum points have to be earned here. It will not be easy.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Predictions

In the first half of the season, Palace could have easily seen off Arsenal but the Gunners are reborn with a new tactician and fresh resolve in the dressing room. Players have recommitted improving the season and their off-field problems are no more. It just might be their day, almost. Trust the Eagles to breach the Gunner's defense at least once and although this points to a draw, Arsenal might just have enough to steal a win in this derby.
