Both sides are on good form at the moment and Selhurst Park is always a hard place to go. We predict there will be a few goals on the night.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Arsenal
Crystal Palace host Arsenal on Monday evening in the Premier League, with Gunners legend Patrick Vieira hoping to put a dent in his former side’s chances of a top four finish.
Arsenal only need a draw at Selhurst Park to move back into the Champions League places ahead of bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Palace have little to play for over their remaining nine games, safely in mid table in 12th place, without a chance of European football or a threat of relegation.
Vieira would love to finish the season strongly, though, after an impressive start to life as a Premier League boss.
