Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

, KO: 20:00 Apr 4, 2022, Selhurst Park

ARSENAL will be looking to tighten their grip on fourth-place in the Premier League when they pay Crystal Palace a visit on Monday night.

The Gunners returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Aston Villa before the international break, on an afternoon where my Asian Card selection copped.

That triumph coupled with results elsewhere means Mikel Arteta's men sit three points ahead of Tottenham with a game in hand on their local rivals.

With no European or domestic cup competitions to contend with for the rest of the season, Arsenal will be fully focused on making a return to Europe's top table next term.

As for Crystal Palace, they will be riding a crest of a wave after reaching the FA Cup semi-finals thanks to a resounding 4-0 home victory over Everton.

Patrick Viera's side are currently sitting 12th in the Premier League table, boasting 34 points from their 29 matches of the 2021-22 campaign, the most recent which was a hard-fought 0-0 draw with champions Manchester City.

Outright Betting

Despite avoiding defeat in each of their last seven matches across all competitions, Crystal Palace enter this contest as 3/1 (SBK) underdogs while the draw is also deemed unlikely at 40/17 (SBK).

Arsenal, who have triumphed in each of their last five top-flight road trips, are odds-on 66/67 (SBK) favourites to emerge from Selhurst Park victorious.

Betting Angles

This contest could be closer than the 1×2 market suggest so instead I'll head to Bet 365's Bet Builder and back each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive a card at 4/5 (Bet 365).

Hosts Palace are averaging 4.55 corners per-game on home turf this term, a tally that increases to 4.93 when operating at their south London base.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are hitting a healthy average of 5.29 flag kicks per 90 minute this season, with the Gunners covering the 3+ line in all but two of their 13 top-flight road trips this term thus far.

With that in mind, coupled with the likelihood of a decent degree of goalmouth action here, three corners apiece doesn't look like too much to ask of two teams stacked with forward-thinking players.

To round off the Bet Builder I'm going with each side to receive a card in what promises to be a keenly-contested all-London affair under the Selhurst Park lights on Monday night.

Patrick Viera's team are averaging a shade under two cards per-game in the Premier League this season, while Mikel Arteta's men are picking up 1.61 cards on average.

It's also worth pointing out that referee Paul Tierney will oversee this match-up, with the top-flight whistler awarding both teams a minimum of one card in 39 of his last 44 Premier League assignments, all of which adds to the appeal of supporting the aforementioned 4/5 (Bet 365) Bet Builder.

I’ll also be waiting to see if Wilfried Zaha features after missing the Ivory Coast's loss to England in midweek with a hamstring issue, and if deemed fit, I'll back Arsenal's Cédric Soares to pick up a card at 7/2 with PaddyPower.

The Palace talisman is the most fouled player in Premier League history so the Portuguese right-back – who has been booked in each of Arsenal's last two away games – looks nicely priced to have his name taken once more.
