Crystal Palace vs Arsenal by Charvie
But I believe this makes a good investment opportunity. Arsenal looked good against West Ham midweek. Truth to be told, West Ham has their own problems, but Arsenal still had a really convincing performance. This probably gave them a confidence boost they needed to rally to the 4th spot.
Arsenal played a 3rd choice keeper and a lot of people assumed he'll concede especially without Koscielny in the defencce. Opposite was the case. Not that Martinez was properly tested in that game, but how bad could he really be? In defence, Mustafi played well with Gabriel so I am not concerned Palace will get plenty of good scoring chances anyway.
What also makes me confident about backing Arsenal is the fact Ozil finally showed up, Walcott looked good and Giroud came from the bench and scored. Sanchez was hardly involved. He had a huge burden throughout the season so its nice to see that he can rely on his teammates for a bit. This versatility right now makes me think Arsenal will in fact be able to get the points in this Monday London matchup.
Palace is fighting for survival, but this is not a do or die game for them as they are 3 points above the relegation and 2 matches played less than 18th placed Swansea. Their schedule till the end is not kind though, but they have a good chance to survive nevertheless. They too have some injuries to deal with especially in defence and I really see one clear winner here and that is Arsenal.
Fair price would be in the region of 1.60 so I see enough value here for medium stake
