A London derby today and we have 2-goals-a-game-at-home Palace playing an Arsenal clearly struggling away from home. I decided here to lay Arsenal if Arsenal scored first. I have already started working on Saturday and Sunday research and, as long as I have no family commitments (while with family over Xmas) I would like to do a live chat on Saturday.

20:00 - Crystal Palace v Arsenal - 1.87 Arsenal

  • This is a London Derby. Note that as Palace have had some success meeting fellow Capital teams.
  • I will not look at head to heads as Palace has a new manager.

Palace (16th)

  • Unbeaten in 8 matches.
  • Palace have scored 2 goals in each of their last 6 home matches.
  • Only 3 clean sheets this season have come under Woy Hodgson.
  • Scored and conceded in their last 6 home matches.
  • Only met one of the top 8 at home, a 2-1 win v Chelsea.
  • 12 of 15 goals conceded at home came 1st half.

Arsenal (6th)

  • 3 draws in their last 4 matches.
  • Failed to score in only 4 matches.
  • Really poor away from home. Only away wins v 7th and 9th.only scored 2 goals or more in one away match.
  • 7 of 9 goals scored away came 2nd half.

Conclusions

  • Please note that this is a London Derby and typically we see teams play to their optimum. We cannot ignore Palace's 2 goals-a-game at home.
  • Arsenal we know a really poor away from home and if scoring first, I would be keener to lay them in the hope Palace's 2 goals pattern continues.
