Crystal Palace vs Arsenal Preview

  • Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: Clubs need stability

Sanchez was particularly impressive on a memorable personal night for his manager, who equalled Sir Alex Ferguson's record of taking charge of 810 Premier League games.

Although Palace went into the match without a defeat in their previous eight top-flight outings, Arsenal were well in charge for the majority of the first half and were fully deserving of the opening goal through Shkodran Mustafi in the 25th minute.

A brace from Alexis Sanchez ensured Arsene Wenger's men sealed the victory but there was still time for a late consolation from James Tomkins, off a Townsend corner kick.

Arsenal drew level with fourth-placed north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur but with a worse goal difference whilst Palace remain firmly embroiled in a battle against relegation just a point above the bottom three.

There must have been much satisfaction for Wenger, whose own future at Arsenal had never been more hotly debated than when his side lost this same fixture 3-0 at Selhurst Park in April last season.

What part Sanchez will play for him remains unclear but the Chilean, whose name has been consistently linked with a move to leaders Manchester City, could not be faulted and neither, naturally, could his skill.

62' - GOAL! Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal (Sanchez) Palace don't clear properly and Chambers lifts the ball towards the back post when the giant Sanchez wins a towering header, nodding down to Lacazette who does really well to hold up and tee him back up for an early spank which rushes past Speroni at his near post before he's noticed anything untoward.

"I am not fearful but as you said that will be a subject that arises because of his contractual situation", Wenger told Sky Sports.

"We have come here and it is a hard game for everyone in the league". For us, it is a question of keeping fighting.
