Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Stats Pack, Bet Builder Tips and Predictions

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Bet Builder Stats Pack Featured Image

Saturday afternoon sees an all-London clash between Arsenal and Crystal Palace with the Gunners looking to get back on track after a tricky Christmas period.  

Palace caused problems for Arsenal early in the campaign, eventually losing 1-0 thanks to a Martin Odegaard penalty. That didn’t tell the full story of a game in which the hosts created plenty of chances but couldn’t find the net.  

Roy Hodgson’s side have only lost four of their ten away matches, picking up a point at Manchester City and beating Manchester United. However, they remain inconsistent and Arsenal will hope to punish that having had a much needed rest of late. They have won one of their last five in the league.  

We’ve broken down the game and have a wicked Arsenal vs Crystal Palace bet builder available worth over 5/1 – read on below for all the numbers and stats you need to win some money this weekend.

ARSENAL VS Crystal PALACE PREDICTED LINEUPS

Former City pair expected to start

The main question for Mikel Arteta ahead of this one is whether he can play both Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) and Gabriel Jesus (knee). The latter is expected to be available having been rested for their FA Cup tie ahead of league fixtures. The former remains a question and Jakub Kiwior will start in his place if not fit.

No Olise for Palace

It looked as if Roy Hodgson was going to have the opportunity to play the exciting pair of Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise for a period together, only for the latter to get injured as the former recovered. It means Jeffrey Schlupp is likely to keep his place with Jordan Ayew currently at AFCON. Options are thin on the ground with Cheick Doucoure also missing, so Matheus Franca could get an opportunity from the start.

ARSENAL VS Crystal PALACE TEAM STATS

Arsenal unlucky of late

Arsenal remain the best defensive team in the Premier League according to the underlying numbers and that hasn’t changed despite them conceding in eight of their last nine matches in all competitions. They have conceded more than 1.4 xG in that time and only Liverpool have managed more than eight shots against them. A note should be that they have drawn two or more yellow cards in 8 of their last 10 matches.

Plenty of chances in Palace matches

Palace have seen both teams score in eight of their last nine matches and both sides manage at least 1 xG in 9 of their last 10, meaning they may well pose a threat to Arsenal. However, they have 10 or more shots in just three of their last eight on the road while conceding five or more shots on target in three of ten away from home. They have been fouled 10 or more times in their last nine matches and drawn two or more cards in seven.

ARSENAL VS Crystal PALACE SHOTS AND SHOTS ON TARGET stats

Jesus a regular finding the target

Gabriel Jesus may lead the line here and if he does, he could be worth backing to find the target given he has managed it in each of his last nine starts. If not Jesus, then Saka is a bigger price than Martinelli despite finding the target in eight of his last nine. Behind them, Martin Odegaard has managed two or more shots in seven of his last 11 matches and Havertz has had 2 or more shots in half of his starts in all competitions.

Eze oozes class

Eberechi Eze is the standout name in the Palace ranks for his effortless quality and with no Olise around, the onus will be on the England international to give his side a chance away at title-chasing London rivals. He has found the target in nine of his 12 starts this season while having two or more shots in 10. Elsewhere, keep an eye on Jefferson Lerma, who has had a shot in eight of his last nine appearances and two or more in six.

ARSENAL VS Crystal PALACE GOALS AND ASSISTS stats

Saka still the starboy for the Gunners

Bukayo Saka has eased off the goal tally of late amid fatigue and his team are not performing to the same level, but he continues to find himself in the final third and their attack heavily relies upon his quality. Therefore, he remains the man to back at 1.83, especially now he has had a couple of weeks to recover from a tough period. He’s already at 20 goal involvements in all competitions this season.

Palace need somebody to step up

Michael Olise was doing a cracking job of finding the net while fit but his absence opens the door for somebody else to step up. Eze is the obvious one given his quality and ability to find the target – he is the same price as Jakub Kiwior to find the net this weekend. And Odsonne Edouard remains the club’s top goalscorer with six in the league, he can be backed at 4.33.

ARSENAL CARDS AND FOULS stats

Arsenal defend from the front

Arsenal’s fouls list all falls on the same area of the pitch – the attack. We have Gabriel Jesus committing over two fouls per 90 minutes and Nketiah committing a foul in his last 10. Bukayo Saka has committed a foul in his last five appearances. Martin Odegaard has committed a foul in 9 of his last 10 (he’s 1.5) while Kai Havertz has committed two or more fouls in five of his last eight.

Marc Guehi is the man to watch here. The centre back has been fouled more than once per 90 this season and will no doubt look to attract further attention to give his side a break. The same goes for Will Hughes, who has been fouled in his last six, and Jefferson Lerma, fouled in 9 of his last 11. Further ahead, Michael Olise and Jordan Ayew may be missing but Eze has been fouled in 10 of his 12 starts and twice or more in seven.

Crystal Palace CARDS AND FOULS stats  

Palace blocking the centre

Roy Hodgson does not want his team to be played through in the middle of the pitch and that much is clear in who commits fouls. Edouard has committed a foul in his last eight starts and Mateta in five of his last six appearances. Lerma has committed a foul in 10 of his last 12 while Eze has done so in 9 of his 12 starts and Hughes sits at over 1.5 fouls per 90 minutes. 

19 01 2024 CRYSTAL PALACE betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Kai Havertz is the man most likely to receive heat, especially from those in defensive midfield positions. He has been fouled in his last 13 whether playing in midfield or attack. He’s not alone in midfield with Martin Odegaard being fouled in six of his last seven. The main threat to Palace is Bukayo Saka and he has been fouled in his last nine appearances, and twice or more in six of those.
