Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when Arsenal and Crystal Palace face each other at Emirates Stadium in the London derby. The Gunners have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Palace. Barring any fresh injury worries, Mikel Arteta is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Fulham 3-0 at the weekend. To make things even better for the home side, Eddie Nketiah has overcome his injury.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, and given their three-game goalless run in the national championship, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Arsenal’s party at Emirates Stadium. All Sambi, Ferguson, and Johnstone are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
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.
Highlighted Team (Crystal Palace):
Crystal Palace Football Club is an English football club which was founded in 1905. The original headquarters of Crystal Palace was based in Sydenham. After being forced to move in 1915 the club settled in Selhurst Park which currently holds a capacity of 27 000 seats. The club Crystal Palace was named after a building which was placed on the Sydenham.
The club colors of Crystal Palace are blue and red. The supporters of Crystal Palace call their team the Eagles or the Glaziers. Crystal Palace is one of the many clubs from London. Crystal Palace never managed to win any trophy in any English football division. The best performance of Crystal Palace was in 2014/2015 where the club managed to end 10th in the Premier League.
