Premier League: Lethal Lacazette…

There is one more Premier League game to enjoy this evening, with Arsenal hosting Crystal Palace at the Emirates.

All the talk about Arsenal being in relegation trouble seems a long time ago. The Gunners may have needed extra time to beat Newcastle in the FA Cup on Saturday, but that is four wins in a row in all competitions.

Palace, by contrast, are struggling – recording just one win in their last seven games, and that was against Sheffield United, the team at the bottom of the league.

This all points to a home win, something we agree with. Arsenal’s last league game saw them dismiss West Brom in comprehensive style, winning 4-0 away from home. French striker Alexandre Lacazette scored twice on that occasion, and he has provided a cutting edge during a period when his captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been goal-shy.

SkyBet offers 22/1 that Lacazette scores a header tonight, but we’ll side with him opening the scoring – a 9/2 shot with Paddy Power.

Recommendations:
