Ian Wright is backing Arsenal to come out on top in a five-goal thriller against Crystal Palace in the London derby on Monday night.

The Gunners are in fifth place in the Premier League table after a 3-0 win against West Ham United at The Emirates on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal ended a winless run thanks to their comfortable victory over the Hammers as Arsene Wenger’s side look to make a late bid to finish in the Premier League’s top four in the current campaign.

The north London side have finished in the Premier League’s top four in the past 20 seasons but Wenger’s men look in serious doubt of missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League.
