I've forecasted a 2-5 win for Arsenal in this game. I think Palace will play with gusto, and may well score first, but Arsenal have annoyingly effective attacking options right now, that will eventually overwhelm their defence.

Well if I'm right about the forecast score line, the second half should be a good watch! I was right about Palace playing with gusto, even if it took them a while to get going. If Arsenal score first I expect Palace's light to fade fairly quickly. If Palace score first Arsenal could have a tougher game in the second half than they bargained for.

A 'job done' performance by Arsenal. Probably the worst aspect of it from their point of view was Flamini going off and Arteta being sent off (soft red). At least Palace showed a little fight in the first half, though lets be honest they are going down.

FT

Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal
0-1 Arteta 47’ (pen.)
0-2 Giroud 87’

Arsenal go 5 points clear at the top of the league.

Mikel Arteta was the hero and villain scoring a penalty and then being sent off!

Any comments on this latest Gunners victory?

we definitely struggled today..it was not like the recent games where we have played with style and pace , against a better team we might have lost this match . It was a bit harsh the red card for Arteta ..as Wenger said it was a long way from goal and not a clear goal soring chance .

But a very important win and keeps us on top ahead of the games against Liverpool ...
