Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips: Goals a feature in derby clash
Preview and odds for Monday’s Premier League clash
The Gunners and Eagles clash in a big London derby on Monday night so we look at the odds to find some potential Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips.
Having opened the season with three defeats, Arsenal are unbeaten in four, while Palace have won just once under Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
Monday’s match, which takes place at the Emirates Stadium, kicks off at 8pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Arsenal v Crystal Palace match odds
The Gunners have also won four of their last five top-flight games at home (L1), as many as they had in their previous 15 at the Emirates combined.
Having beaten Norwich, Burnley and Tottenham, Mikel Arteta’s side were held to a goalless draw at Brighton ahead of the international break, a result that left them in 11th place in the table with 10 points from seven games.
That was their first draw of the season and another stalemate is on offer at odds of 11/4 in the Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips. Four of the last six meetings between the sides resulted in a draw.
Palace have played well for the most part this term but have arguably not enjoyed the results their performances have merited.
Their never-say-die attitude has seen them claw back deficits to gain points against the likes of West Ham and Leicester, and they also netted late goals to beat Spurs 3-0.
That result was significant, as it was their first success after an 11-game winless run in Premier League London derbies. The Eagles haven’t won consecutive league derby matches since April 2017, which included a 3-0 win against Arsenal, and they are 9/2 to win this time.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace head-to-head
Arsenal have won just one of their last six Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (D4 L1), though it was in their last such meeting in May (3-1 at Selhurst Park). Palace are 5/4 to win or draw the game on the Double Chance market in the Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips.
The visitors are unbeaten in their last three Premier League away games against Arsenal (W1 D2). The Eagles had only avoided defeat in three of their previous 16 visits to Highbury/Emirates Stadium in the league (W1 D2 L13).
Goals are usually on the cards when these two meet. Six of the last eight clashes saw four goals or more scored in total and the odds for that to occur this time are 11/5 in the Arsenal v Crystal Palace betting tips.
Arsenal v Crystal Palace key battles
Arteta must be concerned by Arsenal’s slow starts. No side has conceded more first-half goals in the Premier League than Arsenal (six) and it is 21/10 that Palace score the first goal in the contest.
However, Vieira must also be concerned that his side have only netted once in the first half in their seven league games this season. It is 12/5 that the first goal of the game will be in the second half.
