In just four games, Arsenal (3-1-3, 10 points) has moved from the bottom to 11th place thanks to solid defense and timely scoring. After allowing nine goals in their first three matches, the Gunners defense picked up steam all of a sudden, allowing just one goal in four games. Among Arsenal’s victories was a 3-1 blitz against Tottenham Hotspur where they notched three goals in the first half before cruising to victory. Aside from their efficient offense where they put up seven shots on target in 12 tries, their defense held the Spurs to 10 attempts despite having greater possession time.

In their last game against Brighton and Hove, Arsenal’s defense conjured 21 shot attempts and almost 60% possession time to settle for a draw. Aaron Ramsdale is expected to start between the pipes for the Gunners as he hopes to extend his solid run as a goalkeeper. He started four times for Arsenal and claimed three clean sheets. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will spearhead Arsenal’s offense as he scored two goals in six appearances for the team.

Players to Watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2 goals), Bukayo Saka (1 goal, 1 assist), Emile Smith Rowe (1 goal, 1 assist), Martin Odegaard (1 goal, Nicolas Pepe (1 assist).

Crystal Palace

Currently in 14th place, Crystal Palace (1-4-2, 7 points) had to come back from 0-2 down to settle for a draw against Leicester City. Michael Olise and Jeff Schlupp fired two second-half goals to cancel out the first-half connections of Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy. The result handed them their second draw in as many games since losing 0-3 to Liverpool on September 18. Wilfried Zaha is expected to lead Crystal Palace’s offense along with Conor Gallagher and Odsonne Edouard while Vicente Guaita will reprise his role as the team’s starting goalkeeper despite allowing 11 goals in seven Premier League starts. The Spaniard is expected to have his hands full again as Arsenal’s offense has been on fire in three of their past four games.

Players to Watch: Wilfried Zaha (2 goals, 1 assist); Conor Gallagher (2 goals, 1 assist), Odsonne Edouard (2 goals), Jeff Schlupp (1 goal), Michael Olise (1 goal).
