What a difference a fortnight makes. 336 little hours…
Ok, forgive the sing-song, but Arsenal are beginning their unlikely charge up the Premier League standings.
Since a 4-1 humbling home defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup, Arsenal have gone four unbeaten conceding just once over that period.
Things aren’t so rosy for Roy.
Crystal Palace have won just once since their 7-0 spanking by Liverpool, and have a tough week of fixtures ahead.
Check out our top Odds Picks for Thursday’s match including a solid 4/1 Long Shot.

Our Top Odds Pick – Arsenal to draw & BTTS – 9/2 at Betfred
Crystal Palace’s form guide this season resembles a pack of Starburst (Opal Fruits for the mature reader…)
In fact, they haven’t put on a run of wins, draws or losses for more than two matches all season.
This being said, Hodgson’s variety pack are always capable of springing unlikely surprises.
The Eagles are unbeaten in their last four meetings against Arsenal, with three of these meetings ending in score draws.
Arsenal are walking in a January wonderland at the moment, but Palace are wily enough to escape north London with a point.
Our Long Shot – Bukayo Saka to score – 4/1 at Paddy Power
Bukayo Saka has been Arsenal’s leading light this season.
The 19-year-old has nailed down a starting place in Mikel Arteta’s side and looks threatening every time he glides forward with the ball at feet.
He’s scored two in his last three league matches for Arsenal, and while 4/1 isn’t exactly a massive outsider, we feel that it’s far too big to turn down for the youngster to net again.
