Having tightened up at the back in recent matches, Al Hain-Cole is backing Emery's men to ease to victory against an Eagles side struggling for goals

After booking their place in the Europa League semi-finals, Arsenal will be aiming to bolster their chances of returning to the Champions League when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Unai Emery’s men recorded an impressive 1-0 win away to Napoli on Thursday, completing a convincing 3-0 aggregate victory.

Latest odds

Having won each of their last 10 Premier League matches in front of their own fans, they are priced at 52/100 (1.52) with William Hill to make it 11 consecutive home victories for the first time ever in a single season.

The Eagles have won just twice in their 22 previous away matches against this opposition, and are 5/1 (6.00) outsiders to come out on top in this one.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw in October’s reverse encounter at Selhurst Park, and you can get odds of 17/5 (4.40) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Team news

Aaron Ramsey is unlikely to feature after limping off with a suspected hamstring strain in Naples, while Sokratis Papastathopoulos is unavailable due to suspension.

James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho are both ruled out due to injury, with Jeffrey Schlupp also a doubt after cming off injured against Manchester City last time out.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Betting Preview

Solid Gunners

Although hardly celebrated for their defensive prowess, the Gunners have quietly been tightening up at the back in recent weeks – conceding just a single goal in seven matches in all competitions.

Having twice kept Napoli at back as well as silencing Manchester United in that run, they should feel confident of handling a Palace side that has scored just twice from open play in their last six fixtures.

Predictions

All things considered, odds of 17/10 (2.70) look well worth backing on Arsenal winning to nil for their seventh match in eight on Sunday.
