Betting Tip: @ Arsenal + BTTS @ 12/5 with bet365

Roy Hodgson enjoyed a fantastic 2017/18 campaign at Selhurst Park considering he inherited a tricky situation before delivering Crystal Palace to eleventh in the Premier League standings.

However, it’s been tricky accumulating points this time around, with victories over Fulham and Huddersfield representing the bulk of their total thus far and the Eagles have suffered six defeats in their nine matches.

Palace are yet to win at home and they’re also without a goal in four attempts, although perhaps they will see the net bulge against an Arsenal side who don’t really prioritise defending under Unai Emery.

Hector Bellerin admitted after a 3-1 win over Leicester that the strategy is generally a risky one, although it has enabled the Gunners to win seven top flight matches on the spin and it’s hard to bet against them right now.

Mesut Ozil looks more comfortable in a red-and-white shirt than he ever did under Arsene Wenger and the decision to depose the Frenchman last season is proving to be a correct one.

Alex Iwobi is also purring in an attacking midfield position, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang capable of delivering goals.

How Hodgson must wish he had that sort of firepower at Selhurst Park and the reliance on Wilfried Zaha for goals means that January can’t come quickly enough in terms of strengthening the team’s attack.

Christian Benteke is a long-term absentee, with Connor Wickham potentially given the opportunity to play in this match and we think Palace can end their scoring drought at home despite probably suffering another home reverse.
