Why Arsenal Must Win Today's Match

Premier League football is here once again! You’ll be able to see some of the best tips and score predictions to do with this game since a lot is expected tonight.

Crystal Palace will be hosting this game as the failure to build on their victory in Sheffield means they need to go again here. Their placement in the league does not help now, they must regroup if they are to steer clear from finishing any lower.

The Gunners have bounced back in their most latest operation against Chelsea - beating the Champions league finalists in a 1-0 game. We believe that they will be back in believing form. All thanks to the Blues for allowing them to play their best game back in London.

In this case, we think Arsenal will win, but both sides will find the net. This is so because Wilfred Zaha enjoys playing against Arsenal. He has on many occasions found the back of the net when we least expected. It should no longer take us by surprise since he likes doing it against this particular team.

Here are 3 key points you should be knowing ahead of this tough encounter:

1. Arsenal has not lost in their last four games.

2. After their losing streak ended, Crystal Palace failed to remain in the momentum.

3. Palace have no problems scoring.

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:

Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Dann, Mitchell; Ayew, Riedewald, Schlupp, Eze; Zaha, Benteke

Arsenal possible starting lineup:

Leno; Gabriel, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Partey, Elneny; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang

Even if Leno might not be going home with a clean sheet, there are all reasons why Arsenal must win the match. Playing away should not be an excuse or a disadvantage, since they have all it takes for this encounter.

The Gunners are on the 10th place on thet table while their opponents sit comfortably on the 13th place. Neither side wants to go lower thereby calling for more effort in this one.

I'm banking all hopes on Arsenal to win this because Mikel Arteta will not allow getting worse than last season - from position 8 to 10. I'm confident that Arteta can still qualify to play in the Europa League next season. He is not badly of thus capable of unleashing his whip!

They must surely win this meeting in bid to keep the hopes alive. We should expect a number of goals in this match that clearly favours the guests.
