Crystal Palace take on the visitors Arsenal in the round 1 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Friday, August 5th at Selhurst Park (London).
Crystal Palace started a curious experiment a year ago. The "Glaziers" under the previous mentor, Hodgson, performed quite consistently. But not brightly, and this calm dullness bored Steve Parish. In 2021, he said goodbye to Old Roy, inviting Patrick Vieira, and also giving the go-ahead to rejuvenate the squad. The results were not particularly impressive: only 12th place. But in general, the football that the Frenchman put on is praised. And it looks like the manager will continue in the same spirit. Ducuré from Lens was not a cheap purchase, at the same time they invited Richards from Bayern and Johnston from the WBA, who stood at the gates of the England national team.

Arsenal spent a lot this offseason. The "Gunners" in 2021/2022 added quite noticeably. But at the same time, we must admit that the results of the season left a taste of failure. They were considered as the favorite to fight for 4th place, but in the end, they missed it. They also lost the argument to their rivals Tottenham! But still, they believe in the further strengthening of the football under Arteta. And Mikel was financed by a serious transfer campaign. However, it was necessary to compensate for the departure of Lacazette (and even earlier, Aubameyang). Now the attacks will build through Fabio Vieira from Porto, and Gabriel Jesus will be the tip. It is curious how the Spaniard plans to use Zinchenko, for whom they gave quite a significant amount. However, Alexander's capabilities are well known to the specialist, who helped Guardiola for years.
Vieira, having received a new position, plays well with his former team as a player. He first took a draw, and in April the Gunners were completely defeated with a score of 3-0. Judging by the odds, the bookies are waiting for revenge from Arsenal. But Crystal Palace also looks quite decent, so we recommend using “over 2.5 goals" for betting.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
