Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Match Preview
Crystal Palace were the last visiting team to win at the Emirates Stadium – but we do not see them bookending Arsenal’s unbeaten sequence with another victory on Sunday.
The Eagles had only 27% possession but created the majority of chances when they triumphed 3-2 at this venue in April for their first victory away to Arsenal since 1994.
But although the Gunners needed two stunning direct free-kicks from Nicolas Pepe in the last 10 minutes to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Vitoria Guimaraes in Thursday’s Europa League match, they are generally pretty reliable on their own pitch.
