Our football match prediction:
Arsenal will be aiming to bounce back from a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to Bournemouth when they take on Crystal Palace in a London derby at their Emirates Stadium. The Alexis Sanchez saga seems to be over and it is more than obvious that Arsene Wenger will not count on the Chilean superstar in the remainder of the season. In Sanchez’s absence, a man to watch in Wenger’s team will be Alexandre Lacazette, who is likely to pose a big threat for Crystal Palace defenders in Saturday’s football match. The Eagles did well to beat Burnley at home ground in their last league game, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the local derby against Arsenal. The Gunners need to pick up all three points from the match if they are to keep their hopes of booking their place in the Champions League and that is the main reason why home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Granit Xhaka):
Granit Xhaka is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most talented central midfielders at the moment and he is on the radar of quite a few high-profile sides. Just two seasons at FC Basel proved enough to attract interest from Borussia M’gladbach, who secured his signature in the summer of 2012. The Switzerland international had a slow start to his career in Germany, causing many pundits to start doubting his credentials, but he eventually turn things around to show he is more than capable of playing at the highest level. Acting as a deep-lying playmaker, Xhaka impressed fans and pundits alike with his performances in Bundesliga and European competitions, and he even managed to score a couple of important goals in the process. Despite his fragile age, the highly regarded footballer has been a key member of the Switzerland national team for quite some time now, scoring 6 goals in his first 40 caps to establish himself as a real leader of the Rossocrociati. The 2014 World Cup, where he scored one goal in four starts, should prove just the first of many major tournaments to come.
