Arsenal are preparing to face Crystal Palace on Thursday, January 14 in the Premier League. Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
“Arsenal cannot stop winning now – they needed extra time to beat Newcastle in the FA Cup on Saturday but that is four wins in a row in all competitions.
“In contrast, Crystal Palace are not on a great run – their win over Sheffield United on 2 January is their only success in their past seven games.
“But, for many reasons, I don’t think they need to worry about being dragged into the relegation fight – chiefly their manager Roy Hodgson and their exciting front three.”
Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
