Arsenal vs Crystal Palace LIVE Football Score 19/5/2021
NAME: Crystal Palace – Arsenal
DATE: 19 May 2021
TIME: 18:00 UTC
VENUE: Selhurst Park, London, England
With European football still very much a possibility, Arsenal prepare for the penultimate fixture of their Premier League season against Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening. The Eagles soared to a 3-2 win over Aston Villa at the weekend, while the Gunners have had a week to recover from their 1-0 victory at London rivals Chelsea.
Amid speculation surrounding the futures of Roy Hodgson and a plethora of Palace players, the Eagles did not rest on their laurels with survival guaranteed, as they came out on the correct end of the scoreline in a five-goal thriller with Villa on Sunday.Dean Smith’s side were 2-1 up at half time thanks to goals from John McGinn and Anwar El Ghazi either side of Christian Benteke’s header, but Palace turned it around in the second period as Wilfried Zaha’s strike preceded Tyrick Mitchell’s chested effort in the 84th minute at Selhurst Park.
With two wins from their last three Premier League outings, Palace are finishing the season with a flourish and occupy 13th spot in the table, but Hodgson’s men can no longer push for a top-half finish and are only capable of finishing as high as 11th this season. A final-day fixture at Liverpool awaits for the Eagles, so their chances of picking up more points before the campaign concludes are not exactly high, and they welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park having shipped eight goals in their last three home games.
