Arsenal 4 – Crystal Palace 1
Make that two defeats in 13 games for Crystal Palace.
From an Eagles perspective, they’d have take those results and the club’s current 13th place Premier League after they lost their opening seven games without scoring a goal.
Yet Saturday’s defeat against Arsenal was rough in the first half. The Gunners scored four times before the half hour to kill the contest.
Nacho Monreal, Alex Iwobi and Laurent Koscielny had Arsene Wenger’s side 3-up after 13 minutes. Alexandre Lacazette added a fourth in the 22nd minute.
A goal from Luka Milivojevic saw Palace ‘win’ the second half with a clean sheet.
Yohan Cabaye: Crutches & protective boot
Roy Hodgson must be cursing his luck in the injury department right now.
The Eagles came into the Arsenal game with a long list of first teamers out.
On Friday fresh fears about Ruben Loftus-Cheek were revealed.
Connor Wickham and Mamadou Sakho are still a few weeks away from returning.
Jason Puncheon, Scott Dann, and Jeffrey Schlupp are all long-term absentees.
While Palace can now add Yohan Cabaye to their long injury list after the Frenchman, who is out of contract at the end of the season, left the Emirates Stadium on crutches and wearing a protective boot.
Cabaye went off on a stretcher with three minutes left in the game.
Will this be the last time Palace see Cabaye this season?
