Crystal Palace and Arsenal will kick off the new Premier League campaign at Selhurst Park in South London on Friday.
Crystal Palace have had a productive preseason, with ending their tour off with a 4-2 win over French side, Montpellier. they finished their preseason schedule with a 5-2-2 record. Crystal Palace are in good forms, since they kept unbeaten in their final six home games last season and remarkably managed to keep clean sheets in each of their last five.
Arsenal played well and won all five of their preseason fixtures, including 6-0 and 4-0 wins over Sevilla and Chelsea. In addition, the team's defensive sides has also been significantly improved since they have completed clean sheets in half of their last 10 games across all competitions.
Arsenal reinforced their attack. With the high morale of the recent 6-game winning streak, I will choose Arsenal as favorite in this battle.
1X2 Pick: 2
