Enjoying their longest top flight unbeaten streak in almost three decades, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Eagles to get a result against Wenger's men

Crystal Palace will be optimistic of pulling off a shock win when they welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park for Thursday’s Premier League clash.

Without a single defeat to their name in eight games, the Eagles are enjoying their longest unbeaten streak in the top flight since a run of 12 matches 1990.

Match odds

Having run out 3-0 winners when the sides met at this ground back in April, they are available at 10/3 (4.33) with Paddy Power to extend their excellent form with another victory here.

However, that defeat was a first in 12 visits to this stadium for Arsene Wenger’s men, who are 4/5 (1.80) favourites to exact revenge with an eighth victory in 10 encounters against their London rivals.

Five of the hosts’ last eight matches have resulted in draws, and can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them holding their opponents to a fourth stalemate in five league fixtures themselves.

In-form Palace

Although they had waited since 1979 to see their side claim a home victory over the Gunners, the Selhurst Park faithful should be optimistic of celebrating another positive result just eight months after April’s emphatic win.

GFX FACT CRYSTAL PALACE V ARSENAL

After losing each of their first three home games of the season without scoring a goal, Roy Hodgson’s side have won three and lost none of the subsequent six in front of their own fans - scoring two goals in each.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have taken just nine points on the road from the first available 27 this campaign, and only won once in their last five league fixtures.

Tips and Predictions

Considering Arsenal are also without a win in five matches against fellow London teams in 2017, even money (2.00) seems to offer generous value on an in-form Palace earning at least a draw in this clash.
