Last week’s defeat at Bournemouth was a hammer blow for Arsenal in terms of their top four hopes and they come up against a side who have lost just 1 of their last 12, recovering impressively from a disastrous start to the campaign.
That 1 recent defeat for Palace did come against Arsenal but also in that sequence they have held Manchester City (0-0 at Selhurst Park) and gave a really good account in a 1-0 defeat at Spurs.
I’m battling to find anything in the goals markets whre the price appeals but I’ll look to the total corners market with over 11.5 the pick.
Bet: Total corners, over 11.5 (no price at time of writing)
