The Premier League gets back into action tonight when the campaign kicks off with a Crystal Palace clash against Arsenal.
The Premier League gets back into gear tonight. The campaign will kick off as Arsenal travel to Crystal Palace in a Friday night clash. Palace beat Arsenal in April, so they’ll be looking to start the season off with a win this time around.
Crystal Palace has lost only one of their last eight Premier League games against Arsenal with two wins and five ties. The Gunners lost the opening league match in five of their last nine seasons, including a 2-0 defeat to Brentford last season. The Eagles are looking to win consecutive league games against Arsenal for the first time in their history.
None of Arsenal’s last 17 games in the Premier League have ended in a tie (11 wins, six losses), making it the longest ongoing run without a tie among the current sides. The Gunners’ new signing, Gabriel Jesus has been involved in seven goals in his last seven league games (six goals, one assist).
