Recent encounters between the Gunners and Hodgson's men have produced plenty of goals at both ends, and Al Hain-Cole expects more of the same

Arsenal will be determined to bounce back from defeat when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium in Sunday's Premier League clash.

The Gunners were surprisingly beaten 1-0 at Sheffield United last time out in the league, although did restore some pride by overcoming Vitoria Guimaraes 3-2 in Thursday's Europa League game.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace latest odds

Having lost just one of their last 22 league matches on home turf, they are 1.45 favourites with Sportsbet to return to winning ways here.

However, the solitary defeat in that run was inflicted by Roy Hodgson's men, who can be backed at 6.50 to secure back-to-back victories for the first time ever over this opposition.

Just two of the last 13 encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 4.50 on this one finishing up all square.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace team news

Reiss Nelson is the only absentee for the home side, as he continues his recovery from a knee ligament injury.

Vicente Guaita and Martin Kelly will face late fitness tests after missing last weekend's defeat against Manchester City due to minor injuries, while Mamadou Sakho is unlikely to feature.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace preview

Having failed to score for the first time in 12 fixtures against Sheffield United, Unai Emery’s men will have been relieved to return to form with a three-goal haul against Vitoria.

They will certainly back themselves to build on that against an Eagles side that has only kept one clean sheet in 12 league matches on the road, conceding 11 times in just the most recent six.

However, the two goals they conceded against modest Portuguese opposition does nothing to inspire confidence in a defence that has kept only two clean sheets in 14 league games.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace predictions

All in all, odds of 1.80 surely offer solid value on both teams scoring in a match that features over 2.5 goals for the fifth consecutive encounter between Arsenal and Palace.
