Why you should back Arsenal
The Gunners upgraded the roster during the transfer window. Arsenal added Oleksandr Zinchenko, who can play left-back or midfield, and striker Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. The club also snapped up 22-year-old playmaker Fabio Vieira from Porto, giving the Gunners an overflow of attacking talent.
In addition, Mikel Arteta’s men have been in midseason form in the preseason. Arsenal went a perfect 5-0 in the preseason, outscoring its opponents, 20-4. That includes a 4-0 victory against Chelsea and a 6-0 win over Sevilla in the Emirates Cup.
Why you should back Crystal Palace
The Eagles have had success recently against Arsenal. On April 4 at Selhurst Park, Palace scored a decisive 3-0 victory over the Gunners in a match that Arsenal badly needed in its chase for a top-four finish. And earlier in the season, at Emirates Stadium, the Eagles managed a 2-2 draw against Arsenal.
In addition, Palace is set to face an Arsenal side that might be without key players because of injury. Takehiro Tomiyasu, Kieran Tierney and Emile Smith Rowe reportedly are doubtful for the Gunners because of various injuries. It was an injury to Tierney that helped contribute to Arsenal’s collapse late last season.
