Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Match Details
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal kicks-off a 12.30 on Saturday 11 January at Selhurst Park. The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.
Crystal Palace Form
The bookies have chalked-up Palace at a top-priced 10/3 to beat Arsenal but Palace are no pushovers at Selhurst Park. They did go through a bad run of losing against Leicester, Manchester City, and Liverpool, but have recovered to beat West Ham and Bournemouth and draw with Brighton in their last three home games. That means Crystal Palace’s Premier League home record this season stands at four wins, three draws, and three defeats.
Mikel Arteta has settled into his role as Arsenal head coach quickly and he comes into this match basking in the glory of a Premier League win over Manchester United and an FA Cup win over Leeds. But both of those matches were at the Emirates Stadium and Arsenal’s away-form has been below average for most of the season.
Arsenal won just one of their four away games in December, a 3-1 win at fellow London club, West Ham. But the Gunners were unbeaten on their travels in the final month of 2019, having also drawn against Norwich (2-2), Everton (0-0), and Bournemouth (1-1).
That form was an improvement on the remainder of the 2019/20 Premier League season. Arsenal may have beaten Newcastle in their opening away match, but they have also lost at Liverpool (3-1), drew 2-2 at Watford, drew 1-1 at Manchester United, lost 1-0 at Sheffield United, and lost 2-0 at Leicester. That means Arsenal’s away record this season stands at won two, drawn five, lost three.
