Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Here are our best tips for Sunday's match for which we have a range of other markets available:

The lowdown

Emery is quickly turning around Arsenal fortunes following the departure of Arsene Wenger at the end of last season.

The former Sevilla and Paris St Germain boss has got his side playing the kind of attacking football that Wenger was once known for.

That was evident during last Monday's 3-1 victory over Leicester as, after weathering an early storm that saw the visitors move 1-0 ahead, the Gunners ripped the Foxes apart with Mesut Ozil at the heart of it.

Arsenal have a good record at Palace, winning nine of their last 12 matches, scoring at least twice in nine of those contests.

The Eagles will struggle to contain Emery's side and the Gunners to win with over 2.5 combined goals at 7/5 is first up in our Crystal Palace vs Arsenal predictions.

First goalscorer tips

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to score twice in quick succession against Leicester and carries the greatest over the last 10 games with an expected goals aggregate of 4.5xG.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker started in Lisbon on Thursday and, despite missing a couple of second-half chances, is pushing for a start at Selhurst Park and could be the man to open the scoring at 4/1.

Anytime goalscorer tips

Mesut Ozil has started to reinforce his reputation as one of the best playmakers in the world over the last couple of weeks.

The German scored the first against Leicester and then played a major role in Aubameyang's double, so he is our tip at 12/5 in the anytime scorer market.

Where the game will be won or lost

Despite their impressive winning streak, Arsenal's slow start to matches is something Emery wants to address.

Palace will be looking to apply the pressure from the off, so an opening goal may not arrive until the Gunners have had time to grow into the game.

Arsenal have been drawing in all four of their away games at the break, so the next of our Premier League predictions is for Draw HT/Arsenal FT at 18/5.

The last of our Crystal Palace vs Arsenal betting tips is for the Gunners to win the second half at 21/20 as they have done in their last five matches in all competitions.

Welbeck continued the streak with a 77th-minute winner in Portugal on Thursday night.

Traders' Tips - View from the trading floor

There is no stopping Arsenal at the minute and a 12th consecutive win looks likely, given Palace are struggling for confidence and goals. Also, taking into account the Gunners' impressive record at Selhurst Park, it looks like struggling Palace are in for a testing afternoon.
