Arsenal are now two points clear at the Premier League summit and despite their 2-1 Champions League reverse in midweek they can continue their excellent domestic form by seeing off hapless Crystal Palace, a result Coral rate at 4/11.
As the Eagles have lost seven of their eight fixtures since gaining promotion, a run that has accounted for boss Ian Holloway this week, the Gunners could be set for a relatively comfortable afternoon and those in agreement should head for Paddy’s Power’s handicaps where the visitors are even money when kicking off a goal behind.
Also at even money, this time via Boylesports, is a flutter on both teams finding the net, which may seem risky on the face of it given Palace’s lack of goals but Arsenal have managed only one clean sheet this term in the league and they can concede again at Selhurst Park.
That bet can be combined with an away triumph at 21/10 (William Hill) while more specifically, Arsene Wenger’s troops are a 12/1 shot at BetVictor to finish on the right side of a 3-1 scoreline and an Olivier Giroud opener is 9/2 with bet365.
Arsenal to win and both teams to score – 21/10 (William Hill)
