Analysis
Crystal palace is coming into this match playing in good form in their recent matches. They have only been playing in friendlies recently but they have won their last 2 straight as they get ready for the season opener here. They did play very good defense at home last season but they have been playing great defense there for years. Despite their defensive play at home, they were still not a very good team there as they had more draws than wins and only won 7 of their 19 home matches. Their team was alright last season, not bad but not great as they finished 12th in the table, but they did not make many big moves in the transfer window to improve their squad for this year. They are going up against an Arsenal side here that is coming off of a very good season last year, finishing in 5th place just 2 points out of a Champions League spot, and that was a much improved season for them considering their performance in previous years. They were in great position to finish top 4 last season but they stumbled down the final stretch of the season and it slipped away. They do have a very good team still and they even made some big moves in the transfer window to improve even more this season and make a run at top 4. They picked up 2 great players from Man City in the offseason, signing Zinchenko to boost their defense and Gabriel Jesus to give their attack that much needed striker to score goals. They have also been in great form recently leading into the season as they have won their last 6 straight matches. They have not been playing any competitive matches recently but they have still been averaging over 3 goals scored per match in their last 6 while averaging less than 1 goal allowed per match in that span. They have not allowed a goal in their last 2 straight or 3 of their last 4 matches either. Arsenal is the better team here and they made some big moves to improve even more than they had improved last season. They are going to be a force this season and they will start their season with a win here collecting all 3 points in this match.
