The North London- based side seems to have come back to their foot, though placed on the 13th position of the Premier League log with ten points out of seven matches, as they have not suffered any loss since their catastrophic 5-0 tie with Manchester City in August. Thus, in the middle of thos resurgence, Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta bags the league's best coach for September, leading Arsenal to win all four matches. But Arsenal will be facing a London side, Crystal Palace today, but how will the team bag their fourth league win at the Emirates Stadium.
In their last five London matches, the Gunners won two matches against the Eagles, suffering a loss, with two stalemates. In 2018, under their then manager, Arsene Wenger, Arsenal were rampant against Palace under Roy Hogdson watch, as goals from Alex Iwobi, Nacho Monreal, Lauren Koscielny and Alexander Lacazette gave the team the maximum three points, that was their last win against Palace. In the turn of 2019, Hodgson's men gave Gunners a tough fight to victory at the Emirates Stadium as Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur found the back of the net against double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyamg.
But the Gunner has only won a London derby and which is against Tottenham, but a victory against Palace will cover a lot for Arsenal to make it closer to the top four of the English topflight. But Palace has not been on their game recently as, they only bagged a win against Tottenham in their last five matches, lost against Liverpool, with three draws in the league which gives the Gunners an advantage today.
Arteta and Patrick Vieira who are both legends at the Emirates stadium have shared their concerns about the tie today, Vieira who with the Gunners spent sixteen years ago made humble advice on how Arteta can unlock the best midfield but said he is looking forward to his return to the club. Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martenili are on the injury list while Ebere Eze and Nathan Ferguson will doubt playing for the Vieira's men today.
