We’re surprised and delighted to find that the bookmakers have overreacted to the appointment of Mikel Arteta as the new manager of Arsenal, with the Spaniard overseeing a 2-0 win over Manchester United which somehow convinced firms to go odds-on about the Gunners for this Saturday lunchtime clash at Selhurst Park.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The victory over the Red Devils might kickstart a string of good results over the next few weeks although one swallow doesn’t make a summer and the plain fact is that Arsenal have won just two of their ten away matches in the top flight this season.

Arteta has clearly brought some organisation and desire to the Emirates Stadium although Crystal Palace are a fairly tough nut to crack at Selhurst Park and the only sides to have left with three points are Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City.

These are commonly recognised as the best teams in the Premier League this season, while Arsenal don’t befit that description considering that they actually sit a point behind their opponents in the standings.

Roy Hodgson’s side sit ninth in the table and they have been beaten just once in their past eight matches which means we’re extremely keen to back them on the Asian Handicap with half a goal start.

They came from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the reverse fixture and their last three matches at Selhurst have yielded wins over Bournemouth and West Ham which have sandwiched a 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Palace aren’t particularly dynamic despite the presence of Wilfried Zaha in the wide left attacking position, although they are a tough nut to crack and have plenty of midfield solidity thanks to the presence of James McCarthur, James McCarthy and Luka Milovojevic.

We think the Eagles are more than capable of getting at least a point considering Arteta is still trying to figure out his best team and will bet on them accordingly.
