Arguably the biggest shock of the Premier League’s opening weekend came at the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by West Ham and the Gunners might find it difficult to bounce back at Crystal Palace.
Admittedly, the North Londoners are 3/4 (Paddy Power) favourites to emerge triumphant (another Palace success is 17/4 at BetVictor) but the best bet at Selhurst Park is Betfred’s 3/1 for an inconclusive affair.
As both sides should strike (4/5, Ladbrokes), bet365’s 4/1 for a score draw isn’t without appeal and bolder punters wanting to take that further can tackle BetVictor’s 7/1 for the teams to get on the scoresheet once each.
Alexis Sanchez meanwhile, should be fit to start the clash for Arsenal having appeared from the bench against the Hammers and the Chilean stands out at 15/8 (bet365) to net at any time.
Crystal Palace and Arsenal to draw – 3/1 (Betfred)
