"Nice touch": Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Crystal Palace v Arsenal

Arsenal are set to face their next Premier League rivals, Crystal Palace, on Wednesday. The Gunners are currently sitting in 10th place in the league table, while the Eagles are 13th on the list. Ahead of the clash, BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction, backing Mikel Arteta's side to beat the rivals with a score of 2 - 0. 

"Arsenal, who had the weekend off, are on a run of three successive league wins and I think they will make it four in a row at Selhurst Park. Their young players have made a difference for them in recent weeks," he said.

"If Palace boss Roy Hodgson is leaving when his contract ends in the summer, it would be a nice touch if they could make an announcement before this match so he gets a proper send off in his final home game in charge. It might help lift the players too."
