Arsenal vs Crystal Palace – Preview 0

Posted on October 15, 2021 by Harry Kettle

The international break has come to an end once again and Arsenal are one of many clubs gearing up for the return of the Premier League. Their poor start to the season hasn’t exactly been eradicated but after going on a strong run of form in September, the Gunners are in a much better position with regards to how they’re going to approach the push for the top six.

In their next challenge on Monday Night Football, they’ll go head to head with a familiar face as Patrick Vieira returns to the club as Crystal Palace manager.

Now that we’re in the midst of the international break it seems like as good of a time as any to take stock of what’s been going on in the world of Arsenal Football Club as of late. We all know they’ve been on quite the journey throughout the first few months of the season and all indications seem to point towards that trend continuing between now and May.

Alas, with the international break being upon us, we want to take a quick look back at the last six games the Gunners have been involved in – most of which have gone pretty well.

Arteta nominated for PL Manager of the Month 0

The start to the new Premier League campaign was tricky for Arsenal back in August but in September, they came back firing with big wins over Norwich, Burnley and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. They went from outside relegation contenders to possibly launching a top six surge in just a matter of weeks but as we all know, it’s going to be a bit more complicated than that.

There are more steps required and more hurdles to overcome before Arsenal fans can be sure this isn’t just a red herring, and that’s understandable. The draw against Brighton was an “okay” way to get October underway, but instead of looking to the future, let’s take the international break as an excuse to heap praise onto the shoulders of Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal knew they were going to be in for a bit of a war when they met a Brighton & Hove Albion side that has, up to this point, done a pretty solid job of maintaining their place in the top six mix. In the end they proved to be as tricky as advertised with Graham Potter’s side perhaps feeling disappointed to only come away with a 0-0 draw from their meeting with the Gunners.

After the match, Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about his thoughts on how it all played out.

Arsenal have been on a pretty solid run of form over the course of the last few weeks with September marking a real turning point in their journey – or at least, that’s what the club hopes. The Gunners will want to make a sustained push for the top six and even though that’s still some distance away, a win over Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend would be a huge statement of their intent.

Ahead of the game, Mikel Arteta spoke about the size of the challenge ahead against an in-form Seagulls side.

There was a lot of anxiety and trepidation heading into Arsenal’s latest North London derby at the weekend – but it turns out, they needn’t have worried. Tottenham Hotspur barely put up a fight in what proved to be one of the most dominant NLD displays in recent memory as the Gunners ran out 3-1 winners to vault above Spurs in the Premier League table.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media as fans continue to celebrate what may well prove to be a turning point for the club.

Arsenal have had a rollercoaster ride of a season thus far and it looks set to continue on Sunday when they meet the old enemy – Tottenham Hotspur. It’s a North London derby that has largely been laughed off by the masses as being a bit of a joke in comparison to what we’ve seen from them in years gone by, but we don’t actually know what we’re going to get until we see it in person.

Prior to the game, Mikel Arteta has spoken about what he expects to see this weekend.

Arsenal fans were feeling pretty pessimistic after losing three straight games to kickstart the new Premier League season and we can understand why. It didn’t seem as if this team had any real ideas or identity and instead of fighting, they were simply rolling over and admitting defeat.

Now, though, after consecutive wins over Norwich and Burnley, some are hoping a corner has been turned – with Mikel Arteta crediting the Gunners faithful as being one of the reasons for that during a recent interview with

Arsenal may have gotten off to a bumpy start in the Premier League this season but the win over Norwich last weekend, at the very least, got them back on the board with some points under their belt. The next task comes in the form of a trip to play Burnley at Turf Moor – a side that hasn’t been able to get a win as of this writing.

Still, Mikel Arteta wants to take things one step at a time, and he made that clear during his pre-match press conference.

The Premier League is back again this weekend and in a refreshing change of pace for Arsenal (depending on how you look at it) they would’ve had an entire week to prepare for their next game after beating Norwich City last Saturday. The reason for that is a simple one – there’s no European football for the Gunners to get involved in this season with their only focus being on the three domestic competitions remaining.

As such you’d imagine they would be thriving but by now, we’ve all come to learn just how unpredictable being an Arsenal fan is.
