Jones Knows prediction

There are smiles on faces at The Emirates once more. No squad within the Premier League rely on confidence flowing greater than Arsenal’s – granted, I am unable to again that up with any statistical proof however there have to be one thing within the water there that make heads drop and backside lips tremble throughout a nasty run.

It wouldn’t shock me to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go on a scoring streak now after he discovered the online within the FA Cup in opposition to Newcastle. When on tune, he’s on a par with Harry Kane on the subject of changing probabilities.

However, I’d reasonably make investments and rave about Kieran Tierney, who is not very Arsenal-like by way of his perspective and consistency. His backside lip stays robust. He is chasing a 3rd help in a row right here, proving he has the standard within the closing third to match his need. Much of what Arsenal do rely on the full-backs offering an overload and Palace are prone to be uncovered down that facet. The odds on supply for a Tierney help makes loads of enchantment.

Meanwhile, Palace stay a team with restrictions. There are solely three certainties in life: dying, taxes and Crystal Palace can be 14th within the Premier League.
