Crystal Palace v Arsenal: No Sol in this Campbell goalscorer pick
The magic is starting to wear off for Alan ‘Pardiola’ Pardew after one win in four for Crystal Palace and the visit of Arsenal could be the fixture to confirm that the honeymoon is well and truly over.
Arsene Wenger’s team go into the game as the 8/11 favourites for victory at Ladbrokes with the hosts 15/4 for the victory and the draw offered at 11/4.
And though Arsenal remain the team to back for a convincing victory, there’s one Palace star that is being tipped to get among the goals at Selhurst Park this Saturday.
History suggests that backing the Gunners to win by exactly two clear goals in the way to go, with Arsenal coming out on top by that specific scoreline in the two meetings between the teams in the Premier League last season.
Four of the north London club’s last six wins have come in games where they have scored twice while wins against Middlesbrough, Manchester City and Hull have all come by a two-goal margin.
The ex-Hull, Tottenham and Manchester United forward has been in fine form in front of goal over the past couple of weeks, netting in back-to-back games against Newcastle United and Liverpool at Selhurst Park.
With the home crowd behind him and willing him on to a third consecutive scoring appearance the 27-year-old looks the pick of the bunch to net here.
Though Arsenal are expected to come out on top, we still suspect Palace may get on the scoresheet in south east London.
The Eagles found the net in a 2-1 defeat at the Emirates earlier this term and have scored in seven of their last eight games in all competitions.
Wenger’s charges, meanwhile, have conceded in both of their previous two Premier League fixtures going into this game.
