Luckily for them, they face one of their favorite (many) whipping boys in their next fixture as they host Crystal Palace. The Citizens have only lost one of their previous twelve fixtures against the South London club. It shapes up as perhaps the best possible opponent to face after losing to the Hammers mid-week (besides maybe Norwich).

After a somewhat shaky start to this year’s campaign, Arsenal seems to have steadied the ship.
