Mikel Arteta’s team will look to end their three-match losing streak

In a crucial match for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, they face Crystal Palace with the need for a win to stay competitive with Liverpool and Manchester City. Currently fourth with 40 points from 20 games, Arsenal have struggled recently, losing three consecutive matches. A victory could lift them to third place above Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace, sitting in 14th place with 21 points, faces a similar challenge, having won only once in their last five games. Manager Roy Hodgson aims to avoid relegation concerns and aims to reach 40 points for the season soon. This Premier League clash promises to be an intriguing contest.

Players to watch

Kai Havertz (Arsenal)

most expensive transfers Kai Havertz Arsenal vs Crystal Palace

Keep an eye on Kai Havertz as Arsenal faces the physically demanding Crystal Palace in their next Premier League match. The German’s proficiency in both aerial and ground battles will be pivotal, and his effectiveness in set-pieces could be crucial, given Arsenal’s struggle to score from open play compared to the top six teams.

Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace)

Given the potential absence of Michael Olise and Jordan Ayew, the upcoming game could serve as a chance for Eberechi Eze to showcase his skills. Despite making 17 appearances this season with six goal contributions, Eze’s true impact on Hodgson’s team is yet to be fully measured through his output. With Olise likely unavailable, Eze finds himself in an ideal position to step up and make a significant impact.

Match facts:

  • Arsenal have won each of their last three matches against The Eagles.
  • Crystal Palace have won just one of their last 12 Premier League away games against Arsenal.
  • Arsenal have taken just four points from their last 15 available in the Premier League.
