Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

Arsenal are back in Premier League action this afternoon the first time in 2024 with a London derby against Crystal Palace, looking to put their slump in form behind them.

Back-to-back derby defeats to West Ham and Fulham rounded off a miserable run which saw them lose three and win just one in five to wrap up 2023.


Palace is a must-win game, with Liverpool facing a tricky trip to Bournemouth and Manchester City having already squeezed past Newcastle with a last-minute winner.

Crystal Palace beat Brentford last time out, but that was their first win since early November and have a tough task to earn more derby bragging rights on Saturday.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace is scheduled for a 12.30pm GMT kick-off today, Saturday January 20, 2024.

The match will take place at Emirates Stadium in London.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace prediction

Both teams have had time to take stock of their seasons thus far with the winter break, and both will know improvement is needed.

Mikel Arteta's Gunners face a tall order to keep pace with Liverpool and Manchester City, and beating Palace is already non-negotiable. The joy of Roy Hodgson's return late last season is already a distant memory, and another relegation fight is not out of the question.

Fighting at opposite ends of the table, and with a bit of rest under their belts, this should be a fairly routine day at the office for Arsenal.

Arsenal to win, 3-0.
