Last season we got hammered by Palace at Selhurst Park by a CP team in trouble. Today we go there in questionable form and Palace are once again in trouble. Recipe for an embarrassing defeat? Let’s hope not.
Any club that employs Roy Hodgson has my respect, he seems like a top bloke and it takes courage to employ a manager committed to football to take a team out of the relegation zone. Most clubs go for the Hoofball merchants like Moyes, Allardyce etc. I hope they stay up and go on an extended run of good form in the New Year.
Palace spent big money and have some excellent players, players whom the press were linking Arsenal with – Zaha, Townshend, Benteke and Cabaye. Defence is their problem and one we must exploit.
It is time Sanchez returned to the form we know and love. I do not believe it is lack of desire which is his problem, probably the opposite.
Monreal may be crocked, so is Ramsey. and OG.
Mustafi Koscielny Kolasinac
Bellerin Xhaka Wilshere Maitland- Niles
Perhaps Iwobi will get a start in place of M-N or Holding could replace Monreal. Who knows except Mr Wenger?
Our form has been strange, consistency conspicuously lacking. One week we are very good in defeat and the next poor in victory.
We need a win and an improvement upon our terrible away form….
Let it start this afternoon.
