Why you should back Arsenal
The Gunners have outscored their opponents 8-1 in their last four in all competitions, also beating Wimbledon 3-0 in a League Cup match two weeks ago. The defense has come together in front of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, with Gabriel and Ben White helping the team post clean sheets in five of its last seven. Arsenal has allowed 10 goals in nine matches in all competitions this year, four of those in the first two matches and five in a loss to Man City. They won the last meeting between these teams, a 3-1 road win in May behind two goals from Nicolas Pepe.
Arsenal has plenty of quality in the attack, with striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (two goals) supported by the likes of Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard (one goal apiece). Emile Smith-Rowe has three goals in his last five games for Arsenal and the English national team.
Why you should back Crystal Palace
Vieira will be eager to prove himself against his longtime team after being an unexpected choice to replace Roy Hodgson. Former Gunners players have a poor record when facing them as a manager, with David O'Leary, Tony Adams and Remi Garde going a combined 3-2-11. But Arsenal has not beaten Crystal Palace at the Emirates since 2018 (0-2-1), and the Eagles have scored multiple goals in three of their last five. Four of the past six meetings between the teams have been draws (each team winning one), and both teams have scored in seven of the past eight.
Wilfried Zaha has given the Gunners trouble, posting a goal and five assists in the past nine meetings. He is always a thorn in the side of opponents, and he will torment Arsenal all game. The winger has two goals this season and 41 over the previous five. Captain Luka Milivojevic has scored five goals in eight games against Arsenal, with four of those coming on penalty kicks.
