Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 8
The Eagles take the short flight to the Emirates this weekend as we are braced for another London derby this season. And Alley Sport brings you the Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction from this crucial gameweek 8 Premier League encounter of the 2021/22 English top-flight season.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Preview
Arsenal had a terrible start to the season which saw them lose to newly-promoted Brentford and then Chelsea, leading to a run of 3 games with no league points and goals. Since then, they have been unbeaten in their last four games in the league and won three on the trot before a draw last to last weekend. They currently have 10 points from a possible 12 since their last league defeat.
Mikel Arteta’s team still looks like they are in transition and not good enough to make it to the top 4, something which continues to elude them post-Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman was, perhaps, not wrong when he said that a top-four finish is akin to a trophy for the Gunners. Against Crystal Palace, they face an opponent deprived of consistency, points, and wins. This could be the perfect chance to extend their unbeaten run and further please their insatiable fans.
Crystal Palace’s only decent win came this season when they slapped Tottenham Hotspur by a 3-0 margin. But even then, Spurs had been reduced to 10 men and the Eagles simply had to beat a weakened Spurs side. However, it was no easy feat as Odsonne Edouard came on from the bench to grab a brace and tell the big teams that this new-look Palace can get the job done when needed and from time to time.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace H2H Record
The London derby between Arsenal and Crystal Palace isn’t really a common match-up but that is largely due to Palace’s status as a non-first division club for many years and even decades. In the 49 games they have met so far in all competitions, Palace have an abysmal record of just 5 wins.
15 games have been drawn while the Gunners have won 29 encounters between the two sides. The Gunners have just two losses against Palace in the last 26 years but they have drawn three out of their last four encounters with them. They won their last game 3-1, however, in the Premier League last season.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Match Prediction
Arsenal are a strong team on paper and are in form. Couple that with their home advantage, and they look like the favourites to beat Patrick Vieira’s new-look, young Crystal Palace side that have been vulnerable in defence over the season so far. We go with a narrow 1-0 for the Gunners in this crucial Premier League encounter that will be so important to both these teams.
