On Saturday, January 11, Crystal Palace will play a match with Arsenal in the 22nd round of the English Premier League. The meeting starts at 16:30 Cyprus time.
Crystal Palace ranks ninth in the English Premier League standings with 28 points.
The team won seven games, played a draw seven times and suffered the same number of defeats in the 21st round.
In early December, the Hodgson’s crew beat only Bournemouth (1:0). After that, they played in a draw with Watford (0:0) and Brighton (1:1), and failed to beat Newcastle (0:1). This unfortunate sequence was interrupted on December 26 by home win in the fight against West Ham – 2:1. The team ended 2019 and began 2020 in the same way – played a draw against Southampton and Norwich (1:1).
In late November, the club fired Unai Emery, and Freddy Ljungberg took his place. Despite this absolutely nothing has changed.
After the match with Man City (0:3), Freddy Ljungberg had to leave the crew. New contract was signed with Mikel Arteta, but Guardiola’s ex-assistant watched the game with Everton (0:0) from the stands.
Arsenal coached by Arteta played a draw with Bournemouth (1:1), conceded in the first half and recouped after the break. In the next match, in London derby they suffered a home defeat by Chelsea (1:2). Having scored a quick goal, Arsenal conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes.
The active work of the coach and players resulted only in the last round of the Premier League. On January 1, Londoners beat Manchester United (2:1) at home and showed perhaps the best game in a few months. In the standings of the Premier League, Arsenal is only tenths with 27 points gained.
On January 6, the crew outplayed Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup. Reiss Nelson scored the only goal at the 55th minute.
Bookmakers consider the guests to be in favor with a win rate of 1.87. The success of the hosts is estimated at 4.10, and a draw at 3.90.
Arsenal is encouraged by the changes and moving in the right direction, so you should believe in them.
Our prediction: Arsenal win
