Sutton's predictions: Crystal Palace v Arsenal

  • Published

A new season - and a new Premier League predictions expert.

BBC pundit Chris Sutton is taking on the challenge from Mark Lawrenson for the 2022-23 campaign and will try to pick the correct scores for every top-flight game against a variety of guests - and this season you can get involved too.

Joining Sutton this week is football commentator and BBC Fantasy 606 co-host Alistair Bruce-Ball.

Sutton's prediction: 1-2

Arsenal have had a great pre-season, while I'm not sure Crystal Palace are the same threat now Conor Gallagher has gone back to Chelsea.

It's still a tough game for Mikel Arteta's side, but everything is pointing towards a Gunners win.

ABB's prediction: 1-1

Another tricky away fixture on a Friday night for Arsenal to kick off the season. Last year they crumbled at Brentford, but they are made of sterner stuff now - certainly helped by the additions of Premier League winners Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus.
