Today’s highlight match is the London derby between Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Arsenal, who started the season on a low form, be able to beat the rebuilding Crystal Palace in the London derby? Let’s take a look at the analysis of this match.
Arsenal’s record this season has been a roller coaster, with three consecutive losses to start the season, leading to overwhelming doubts and calls for Arteta’s dismissal. But just one month later, Arteta led the team to win all three matches and successfully became the best coach in September.
Why did their record fluctuate so much? First of all, the opening three consecutive defeats were due to lack of personnel at the beginning of the season. The leading players such as Aubameyang and Lacazette were absent from the game due to the epidemic, and Erdogan had not yet finished signing, so Arsenal was directly missing half of their starters.
Losing to Brentford was indeed undeserved, but losing to Manchester City and Chelsea was completely reasonable.
With the return of all the leading players, and the increasing integration of the new signings in the summer window, Arsenal is now at their true level. Coupled with the fact that the opponents they faced were all avoid relegation level except for Tottenham Hotspur who were slightly stronger, winning was a natural thing to do.
This year Crystal Palace is into the reconstruction, not only the lineup has changed significantly, the manager also changed to the former Arsenal meritorious player Vieira, whose style of play is more calm.
With four draws in seven games in the new season, Vieira’s tactics are based on defensive counter-attacks.He is well aware of the strength of Crystal Palace’s positioning in the Premier League and their mission is to avoid relegation this year, so their playing style is very pragmatic. This tactical system is more conducive to Zaha and Benteke, the counter-attacking masters to play.b
Arsenal has been playing brightly recently, but they are still an inconsistent team. They may dominate on the field, with superior shots, corners, possession, etc., but it’s unlikely that they will win by a large margin.
In this game I think Crystal Palace will lose by one goal at most and even have a chance to stay unbeaten.
Prediction:Crystal Palace +1 @1.66
