Crystal Palace are coming in to this match with a comfortable and confident victory over the premier league new comers, Norwich City. The match must have given Alan Pardew’s men a lot of confidence and momentum while going in to the season. However, in their second fixture itself, Palace are up against Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.
Arsenal has had an exact opposite fortunes on the opening weekend and will be gutted with the result they got. If Crystal Palace player would be out their filled with confidence, Arsenal players will be there with a lot of eagerness to prove, that the last week was just a blip. Arsenal had to wake up to a rude and unexpected shock when they were beaten on the opening day by West Ham United with a score line of 0-2. To make things worse, it was a home that Arsenal faced such an humiliating victory. With such an action packed midfield, there was hardly any communication and decent link up play. The forwards too were far too selfish to pass the ball to someone in a better person Most of the times, they just ended up shooting from areas which were literally impossible to score from. When asked about the defeat, Wenger responded:
“We always respond well but a defeat is never a blessing. It always hurts. We have analysed what happened and have not to go overboard, but that shouldn’t take away our belief and potential.
We were disappointed with the result and performance. When you want a strong season the way you respond to disappointment [is important] so we focus on our next match and prepare for that. Palace have good offensive potential, are strong defensively [and have] played together for a long time. We know every Premier League match can be a tough one so we prepare for that.”
Pardew on the other hand was pretty buoyant due to his opening game victory but did not underestimate the Wenger’s team a bit. He said:
“It’s difficult to stop them [playing their way], but we need to play our game. Generally our performance at Norwich was below our best. We want more control in matches this year, which will be interesting for our fans and for the media.
We want to wrestle control from Arsenal. It will make a different kind of statement if we were to beat them. We are looking forward to match, we’re in good shape. Everybody is hustling for positions.”
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Predictions Who Will Win
Prediction: With the incoming of Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal might get some zing from their attack back and would hope to take it from there. It looks like a scrappy 1-2 victory to Arsenal.
