Arsenal v Crystal Palace stat pack

Before Saturday’s tie, a number of interesting stats regarding both teams have come to light:

  • After a run of just one win in eight Premier League games against Crystal Palace (D5 L2) from 2018/19 to 2021/22, Arsenal have now won their past three against the Eagles.
  • Palace have picked up fewer points in Premier League London derbies this season than any other side (six – W1 D3 L3). Away from home, the Eagles have won just one of their past 17 matches against fellow London clubs (D9 L7), a 2-1 victory at West Ham United in November 2022.
  • Arsenal have lost their past two Premier League London derby matches, as many as in their previous 25 (W17 D6). The Gunners haven’t lost three consecutive such games since March 1993.
  • Only Liverpool (17) and Luton Town (14) have scored more goals in the final 15 minutes of Premier League games this season than Arsenal (11). Meanwhile, only Sheffield United (16) have conceded more in the last
    15 minutes than Crystal Palace (11), with the Eagles shipping a league-high 38 per cent of their goals in this timeframe.
