Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over West Ham United, Arsenal take on Crystal Palace in yet another London derby. The Gunners desperately needed a win against Slaven Bilic’s troops and they managed to get one, but Arsene Wenger’s troops need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-four finish. Arsenal are four points behind the Champions League berth in the Premier League standings, meaning that they face a must-win situation in Monday’s football game against Palace. Following four straight wins in the national championship, the Eagles suffered a 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace in midweek. Anyhow, Sam Allardyce is doing a great job with the Selhurst Park outfit as he helped the team escape the relegation zone. Palace have been in a fine form of late and we predict that they will grab something from the London derby against Arsenal.
Highlighted Player (Zaha):
Wilfried Zaha is a football player who started his youth career at Crystal Palace aged 12. On 27 March 2010, Zaha made his first-team debut against Cardiff City and he continued playing for the Eagles until 25 January 2013, when he signed a deal with Manchester United for a reported £15m. However, the pacey winger made no more than two appearances for Manchester United in the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign. In 2015 he joined his boyhood club Crystal Palace and went on to score four goals for the Eagles in the 2014/2015 Premier League season. Wilfried Zaha was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, but he decided to represent England on the international stage. He made his debut for the Three Lions on 11 November, 2012 in a friendly game against Sweden. Wilfried Zaha made 13 appearances for the England U21 team as well and he scored one goal for the side.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
