Two Wins in a Row for the Gunners? Arsenal v Crystal Palace Ultimate Form Guide

By timgarrett IN General,Premier League,Ultimate Form Guide - 19:45 Dec 31st 2016

Arsenal fans will almost certainly be coming into this fixture feeling that December has been a tough month. For their visitors, however, 2016 has been a tough year.

Crystal Palace head to Arsenal in 17th place, knowing that they need to start picking up points sooner rather than later, and that there are few tougher places in the country to do that than The Emirates.

Arsenal’s home record this season has been exemplary bar an opening afternoon against Liverpool. 6 wins in 8 home games since then has helped them remain in the top 4.

Our Ultimate Form Guide delivers the verdict most would have predicted – that Arsenal are the standout favourites in this meeting. They top Palace in 12 out of 15 key statistical categories, with Palace failing to achieve a victory in any of the remaining 3.

Both sides have scored similar amounts of goals in their last 10 games (21 vs 18) and in fact Arsenal are only performing marginally better in this area than their visitors. It’s in defense where the real differences can be seen.

Palace are currently conceding an average of 1.1 goal per game more than Arsenal. They’re also allowing their opponents significantly more shots per game, with stats that will have Arsenal’s array of attacking talent licking their lips.

Big Sam may have arrived at Palace with a brief to fix their leaking backline, it would appear that this may be a leap too early and too far for his side.
