Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

They’ll hope that things go a bit better than their loss to Brentford to begin last season. There’s a fair reason to expect improvement after adding Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mikel Arteta is doing what he can to bring the Manchester City environment to the Emirates stadium.

For Patrick Vieria, he’d like nothing more than for Crystal Palace to take the next step in their progression by toppling Arsenal to open the season. They’ve made smart additions in the transfer market and one of the beautiful things about the start of the season is that all the teams are on equal footing. Even without Michael Olise, and with Conor Gallagher gone back to Chelsea, Crystal Palace will put up quite a fight protecting their home grass.
