Sunday’s Premier League action from Selhurst Park sees Crystal Palace take on Arsenal.

The Eagles lost for a third game in succession last weekend, with Everton scoring twice late on to take all three points at Goodison Park.

They go into the weekend just two points above the relegation zone and could even be below the dotted line by the time this game kicks off though for that to happen Fulham, Southampton and Cardiff City would all need to win on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson could welcome back Max Meyer and Alexander Sorloth, after they missed last week with a virus though Christian Benteke and Joel Ward remain out.

Wilfried Zaha is widely available at 7.5 (13/2) to get the first goal of the game with Luka Milivojevic, who missed a penalty last time out a 20.0 (19/1) shot with Bet Victor.

The hosts are 4.6 (18/5) to win with some firms, with the visitors favourites at 1.77 (10/13) with Unibet. The draw can be backed at 4.2 (16/5).

The Gunners won yet again midweek, edging past Sporting CP in the Europa League while last time out in the league they came from behind to sweep aside Leicester City.

Another victory here would be their twelfth in a row in all competitions and see them move level on points with champions Manchester City, who are at Tottenham Hotspur on Monday evening.

Unai Emery is likely to recall several players who were rested for the trip to Lisbon and Petr Cech is in contention for a recall though Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are doubtful with hamstring injuries.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored a brace in each of his last two league outings despite starting both games on the bench is favourite to open the scoring at 5.0 (4/1), with Mesut Ozil an 11.0 (10/1) chance with Unibet.

Both of last season’s clashes between the sides saw plenty of goals, and both saw Arsenal finish on top with them following their 3-2 triumph at Selhurst Parrel=”nofollow”k in December with a 4-1 win at the Emirates Stadium a month later.

You can back an Arsenal win not to nil here at 3.25 (9/4) with Betfair while Paddy Power offer 4.8 (19/5) for there to be five or more goals in the game.
