Crystal Palace are given a price of 4.75 to win this game. However, this is not a great price for a team that has suffered a defeat in six out of the nine league games so far this season. Arsenal, meanwhile, have been quite brilliant even after starting the campaign with back-to-back defeats against their title contenders. Arsenal came away from the last London derby with flying colours. Palace may offer more resistance than Fulham, but our preview expects Arsenal to prevail quite comfortably.

Correct Score odds
The Gunners have been playing some amazing football over the last few weeks. They have already contributed on numerous occasions to the ‘goal of the season contender’ and Arsenal’s momentum only increases the possibility of seeing more such goals. Palace do not have an attacking threat apart from Wilfried Zaha. Even though Arsenal’s defence has issues, our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for the visitors.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Arsenal are more than likely to be involved in a high-scoring game largely due to the brilliant football being played by the Gunners. Unai Emery is starting to get the best out of his players at all aspects of the game. Despite Palace’s best efforts, they may be overrun by Arsenal. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alexandre Lacazette has provided four goals this season with two of them opening the scores. Even though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored more goals (6) than the Frenchman, Aubameyang is yet to open the scoring this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Lacazette, whose hold up play is also very instrumental for Arsenal.
