Arsenal at the Palace; the last 20 games meetings and the home/away split

By Bulldog Drummond.

So let us move on to the question of matches between Arsenal and Palace across the years.   Here are the last 20 games between the two teams…

In those 20 games Palace have beaten us twice, once in 1994, and once last year.  There have been four draws and that means 14 times we have run.

As always I want to keep focussing on the home and away issues – if we draw up a league team just showing away form we are not doing too badly being above Manchester City and Manchester United while Tottenham are in the odd position of doing better away from “home” and of course having fixed the league programme so that they could play a couple of aways while their rebuilt ground in Tottenham High Road was being finished off.

That proved to be a false hope and so at some stage they are going to have to catch up with their home matches – with quite possibly home not being the normal advantage that it is.

So, we have played four away from home, won three and lost one (to Chelsea 3-2).   We have also scored the most away goals with 12.

Pos Team P W D L F A GD Pts
1 Tottenham Hotspur 6 5 0 1 11 4 7 15
2 Liverpool 5 4 1 0 8 3 5 13
3 Chelsea 4 3 1 0 8 1 7 10
4 Arsenal 4 3 0 1 12 7 5 9
5 Manchester City 4 2 2 0 8 1 7 8

Now if we contrast this with the home table we can see that Tottenham have only played three because of the fixture manipulation but scanning down further we find Palace who have played their four games won none and most particularly not scored a goal at home yet.   Details of quite why their home form is so difficult for them were given in the last article: Crystal Palace v Arsenal. A lesson in how a club should NOT treat its core fans.

Pos Team P W D L F A GD Pts
12 Tottenham Hotspur 3 2 0 1 5 3 2 6
13 Burnley 4 1 1 2 6 6 0 4
14 West Ham United 5 1 1 3 4 5 -1 4
15 Fulham 4 1 1 2 6 10 -4 4
16 Cardiff City 5 1 1 3 7 12 -5 4
17 Southampton 4 0 2 2 3 7 -4 2
18 Crystal Palace 4 0 1 3 0 5 -5 1
19 Huddersfield Town 5 0 1 4 0 7 -7 1
20 Newcastle United 5 0 0 5 3 9 -6 0

It is difficult to see something positive for Palace in this situation unless they have, of late, managed to fix the splintered relationship with their very noisy and positive home support who wanted to sit behind the goal, but have been refused the right to move.

The final chart for the moment looks at where the clubs would stand if measured only by goals scored – a good indicator of a likely score.  The first column shows where is club is in this imaginary league table – the second retains its actual position based on points.

15 14 West Ham United 9 2 1 6 8 14 -6 7
16 17 Cardiff City 9 1 2 6 8 19 -11 5
17 16 Southampton 9 1 3 5 6 14 -8 6
18 20 Newcastle United 9 0 2 7 6 14 -8 2
19 15 Crystal Palace 9 2 1 6 5 11 -6 7
20 19 Huddersfield Town 9 0 3 6 4 18 -14 3

What we can see is just how desperate the goal scoring situation is for Palace.  Not only no goals at home, only one team in the league has scored fewer goals.  And they are up against the second highest scoring team in the League in Arsenal, with 22 goals in 9 games.

Thus we are averaging 2.44 goals per game while Palace are averaging 1.22.  You might notice the relationship between the two numbers.  We score twice as many goals as they do.

    What’s 5 into 9 again? 😱

  • Ferg

    Ask Gord, he’s top on sums

  • Palace average is 0.555.

  • Ferg

    I make that 5-1 then
    But I’d settle for 1 nil any day

  • Gord

    Gord was still getting caught up with last game day. For me, 5/9 is 0.556. I can live with 0.555.

    OT: Cardiff is having a nightmare in Liverpool! They are only managing 15% possession, and have yet to have a shot or a corner.

    Meanwhile, Bournemouth is being given the game by Marriner. A penalty given to the visitors on 14 and a yellow on 17, so Fulham already have about 150 man-minutes of caution and it is just half time. No treatments yet, and both clubs like kicking the opposition.

    After Liverpool have walloped Cardiff 5-1 this afternoon, it has become compulsory for Arsenal to equally trounce Crystal Palace tomorrow so that they will remain in the mist of their four rival top club sides who have emerged contending for the Title thus far this season. In this wise, Arsenal should strive by all possible means to trounce Crystal Palace to possibly go 3rd in the table if result in the match between Burnley and Chelsea goes their ways.

    My guessed Emery’s Arsenal 4-2-3-1 starts and 7 on the bench Gunners for the match are below:
    Starts:
    Leno;
    Bellerin Mustafi Sokratis Monreal;
    Torreira Xhaka;
    Iwobi Ozil Aubameyang;
    Lacazette.
    Bench:
    Martinez Holding Kolasinac Guendouzi Ramsey Mkhitaryan Welbeck.
