Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Live Football Score 14 Jan 2021
Arsenal are looking to make it four Premier League wins in a row for the first time since October 2018 when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have finally hit a good run of form under previously under-pressure boss Mikel Arteta, while Palace have struggled for consistency and are one point worse off than their London rivals.
Arsenal’s Boxing Day win over Chelsea felt like a turning point at the time and that has proved the case in their three matches since, each of those ending in victory.
As well as beating Brighton and Hove Albion and West Bromwich Albion in the league, the Gunners also saw off Newcastle United 2-0 with the aid of extra time in Saturday’s FA Cup third-round tie.
With back-to-back home league matches with Palace and Newcastle to come this week, the aim for Arteta now will be to climb the division from his side’s current standing of 11th.
Arsenal have fared well in previous London derbies this term, too, taking more points from their capital rivals than any other side (nine). Indeed, they have won three out of four such fixtures this term, already one more than in the whole of 2019-20.
Palace know how to frustrate their opponents, though, having gone four without defeat against them in the Premier League – the Gunners’ longest ever winless run in this fixture.
Unlike Arsenal, the Eagles were unable to progress past the third round of the FA Cup last weekend, going down 1-0 to fellow top-flight side Wolverhampton Wanderers.
