Tip: Arsenal win to nil
Units: 1/5
Odds: +175

The psychological difference between playing at home and away can be perfectly illustrated by Arsenal’s performances and results this season, with the Gunners having racked up forty-four points at the Emirates this term compared to nineteen on the road.

In fairness to Unai Emery’s side, only Spurs, Leicester and Crystal Palace have bucked the trend of being better on the road, although Arsenal continue to struggle away from their own ground and that could lead to the north London side missing out on a Champions League spot.

Back at the Emirates, Arsenal have been very strong. Fourteen wins, two draws and just that solitary defeat which occurred all the way back in August when the season was just beginning. Manchester City were the victors that day, while Liverpool and Wolves are the only other teams to have avoided defeat.

Therefore, we can be confident that the Gunners can land a victory in this London derby, with Palace having pulled off seven wins on the road this season although they have also lost eight times.

Arsenal will feel that taming Wilfried Zaha is key to preventing the Eagles from causing problems, with the Ivory Coast international regularly being fouled for penalties which see the ice-cool Luka Milivojevic despatch from the spot with regular aplomb.

Arsenal have only conceded twelve goals at home compared to twenty-eight on the road, with the team commanding the lion’s share of possession in the majority of their matches in front of their own supporters.

Previously to recently losing 1-0 at Everton, the Gunners enjoyed three successive home wins which saw no goals conceded against Rennes, Manchester United and Newcastle United.

Previously to this, Arsenal shipped just once against Bournemouth after consecutive clean sheets at home to BATE and Southampton, with Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi looking like a decent enough combination in central defence.
