Arsenal enjoyed a resurgence before the international break and will be keen to see off Crystal Palace at Emirates Stadium.
The Eagles are coming to terms with changes implemented by Patrick Vieira but still appear vulnerable on the road in the Premier League.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has netted in his last two home fixtures, so 7/5 for him to score and the Gunners to win is our first Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal lifted the early-season gloom hanging over Emirates Stadium when claiming a hat-trick of league victories, notably beating arch-rivals Tottenham 3-1.
Mikel Arteta’s men couldn’t quite keep the winning run going when drawing 0-0 at Brighton, but that wasn’t a bad result against another in-form outfit.
Deadline-day capture Takehiro Tomiyasu commented: “It’s always difficult to play after a game against Tottenham but I think we had to be more aggressive.
“We have to think positively about one point, though, because we couldn’t play our game – they controlled most of the time.
“I think the atmosphere is good because we took 10 points in the four games. We don’t have to be negative, we just focus on the next game.”
The Gunners struggled to get going up front at Amex Stadium, but Aubameyang headed against the outside of a post in the first half.
This should be a better chance to be on the front foot from the outset and we like 6/4 for the hosts to be ahead at the interval and full-time from the Arsenal vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Arsenal line-up: Ramsdale, Tierney, White, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Partey, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Lokonga, Aubameyang.
Arsenal remain without Granit Xhaka, who will be missing until around the new year with ligament damage in his right knee. Gabriel Martinelli could also be absent with a muscular injury.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace showed plenty of spirit when coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Leicester at Selhurst Park.
Substitutes Michael Olise and Jeffrey Schlupp hit the target in the second half as the Eagles remained unbeaten on home turf.
Vieira said: “I’m really pleased because when they came on, they came on with determination and that, for me, is the most important detail.
“When you are on the bench it is not easy, but they were concentrated, ready to come on and bring some of the energy we needed.”
However, Palace’s away form is far from impressive, losing 3-0 at Chelsea and Liverpool and having to come from behind twice to draw at West Ham.
This is another tough road test and 27/4 for the Gunners to oblige 2-0 completes our Arsenal vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Milivojevic, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Edouard.
Nathan Ferguson and Ebere Eze (both Achilles) continue to make good progress with their respective recoveries, but the pair will not be rushed back into first-team action.
