Arsenal have had an absolutely disastrous season and their task of getting back on track gets no easier he on Wednesday, as they take on a strong Crystal Palace side at Selhurst Park.
Arsenal currently sit in 10th place and are 11 points adrift from the Champions League places which is a surprise even for people who thought Arsenal would have a bit of a down year, as they are perennial top 4 challengers.
The biggest surprise about this Arsenal team is that they have defended extremely well here in 2021, only allowing 38 goals and if you told most fans prior to the season that Arsenal would concede so few goals and be in 10th place at this juncture of the season, they simply would not have believed it.
That is the situation they find themselves in though, as the offense has gone cold with midfield depth being a key concern for them, as they just do not have enough talent at the position at this time.
The front trio of Lacazette, Aubameyang and Pepe have only contributed 29 goals which is simply not good enough for the caliber of players that they are, and the transfer fees that they demanded, as this looked like one of the best front threes in the entire league when it was initially put together.
Arsenal is coming off one of their biggest wins of the year though, as they managed to beat Chelsea 1-0 on a decisive goal from Emile Smith-Rowe despite being outplayed by The Blues for the majority of that contest.
Crystal Palace has won 2 of their last 3 games so things are going reasonably well for the team, as they have escaped relegation and now have their sights set on finishing as high in the table as possible, as it is still possible for them to get into 11th place which would be a win for the club.
Crystal Palace has conceded 61 goals this campaign which is disappointing, as they are normally one of the better organized units in the Premier League and it is only because they have gotten some timely wins by low margins that they are safely outside of the relegation places.
The offense from an overall perspective has also been ice cold scoring only 40 times all season and with a front three like Zaha, Townsend and Benteke you certainly would have thought they could do better then that.
Palace did have their shooting boots on for their last game against Villa though, scoring three times with contributions from Benteke, Zaha and Mitchell being key to the 3-2 victory.
Free Arsenal vs Crystal Palace EPL Prediction:
Arsenal have serious problems this year, and taking them on the road here as a -188 favorite seems tough considering how close these two clubs are on paper. I am sure Crystal Palace will be up for this one on their home pitch, and believe they are worth a chance as +450 underdogs here, as there really is not much between these two teams at this time and I firmly believe these odds should be significantly closer than they are.
