Kick Off – 16.00pm Sunday 17th April 2016

Arsenal play hosts to Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday, both sides look to finish the season in a positive style.

Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes look all-but over after the Gunners drew 3-3 with West Ham last time out. The Gunners established a two goal lead through goals from Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, only for two let first half goals from Andy Carroll to level the scores.

Carroll gave the Hammers the lead early in the second half, but French centre-back Laurent Koscielny rescued a point for the side from north London.

The draw did little for Arsene Wenger’s side’s chances of winning the title, as the Gunners are now 13 points behind league leaders Leicester, although the side from north London do have a game in-hand.

Palace moved closer to the magic point’s total of 40 by drawing 0-0 with Everton last time. The Eagles failed to take advantage of the Toffees playing for much of the second half with ten men, after James McCarthy saw red.

Alan Pardew’s side moved on 38 points and are now 16th in the top-flight table, but more importantly 11 points clear of relegation zone. The Eagles now look safe from relegation.

Match Prediction

Arsenal should have enough quality to see off a Crystal Palace side that have been poor on their travels and the Gunners pretty good on home soil. Arsene Wenger’s side have been prolific and I can see goals in this clash once again.
