CRYSTAL PALACE v ARSENAL BETTING PREVIEWCrystal Palace recently won four matches on the spin - against Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Chelsea - before to lose to Southampton 3-1 at St. Mary's in midweek. Anyway, they are still only three points above the relegation zone. Sam Allardyce men have two games in hand on the two clubs - Hull and Swansea - immediately below them, but their run-in looks extremely tough with away trips to Liverpool, Manchester Ctiy, and Manchester United to come. The Eagles have won only one of their 15 Premier League games against Arsenal (D3 L11) and are winless in 12 against them.
Sam Allardyce has revealed that Yohan Cabaye will likely miss the match and is hopeful that James McArthur will be available again following a back problem. Anyway, Mathieu Flamini and Luka Milivojevic should deputise in midfield, with Joe Ledley main alternative. With James Tomkins and Scott Dann ruled out, Martin Kelly may keep his place and partner Damien Delaney at the hearth of the defense. Jeffrey Schlupp should also be safe to keep his spot at left-back with Patrick van Aanholt unlikely to recover from an ankle injury in time. The likes of Jason Puncheon, Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha will support central striker Christian Benteke in attack. Pape Souare and Connor Wickham remain sidelined, while Fraizer Campbell is still doubtful.
Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over a struggling West Ham team in midweek would have eased some pressure on Arsene Wenger. The Gunners are 6th in the Premier League standings and can't afford any more slip ups in a bid to regain a place in the top 4. Prior to the visit of the Hammers Wenger's men had won just one of their previous six league outings and suffered embarrassing defeats to both Watford and West Brom. They have taken just four points from the last seven away from home. Furthermore, Arsenal have conceded at least 3 goals in their last 3 away matches.
Petr Cech and David Ospina will both miss the trip to Selhurst Park, so Emiliano Martinez will again deputise in goal. Gabriel may also keep his spot in defence with Laurent Koscielny still a doubt, forming an unchanged back four line with Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal. In midfield, Mohamed Elneny impressed against West Ham and should retain his berth. Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez look set to form the attacking midfield trio, probably behind lone striker Danny Welbeck. Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi provide further attacking options.
