Arsenal v Crystal Palace: match preview


Arsenal may be forgiven for feeling slightly smug after allowing Troy Deeney to self-destruct and then coolly brushing Napoli aside. Just remember Unai Emery’s side secured consecutive away wins without conceding the purpose. They revisit the Emirates seeking an 11th successive home win, a single-season record if achieved. All Roy Hodgson must do today stop them is watch how Watford dominated the midfield battle on Monday, despite as a man down and drill Luka Milivojevic and co accordingly. Easier said than done but Palace hold the counterattacking flair to stun any side. Graham Searles
