Recent form of Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
In the last Europa League arena, Arsenal were eliminated by Sporting Lisbon. The Gunners took the lead, but then failed to secure the lead when Sporting Lisbon equalized 1-1 in the second half. In the penalty shootout, Arsenal fell to the Portuguese representative when Martinelli was the one who missed the decisive penalty. An early exit in the Europa League will affect Arsenal’s morale. However, to be fair, the Gunners force is not thick enough to be able to dream of going deep in the European Cup and conquering the Premier League title. Meanwhile, everyone understands that the number one priority of Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students must be to win the Premier League. So being eliminated in the Europa League may be good news for Arsenal, because they will be fully focused on the domestic front.
In the Premier League, the Gunners are still in great form. After a stumble against Man City in February, they have won all of the last 5 rounds. Last week, Arsenal just crushed Fulham with a score of 3-0 right away, although this is not an easy opponent to play. In the Premier League alone at home, Arsenal also won the last 2 matches. Gabriel Jesus has also returned to give Arteta more options in attack.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace played very badly at this stage. In all competitions, they have 12 consecutive matches without winning, received 7 defeats in the last 4 matches, Crystal Palace did not score a goal. They also became the first team in the Premier League since the 2003/04 season not to have a shot on target in the last 3 rounds. The future of coach Patrick Vieira is being questioned. And Crystal Palace will be a suitable opponent for Arsenal to dispel the sadness of the Europa League.
