Crystal Palace v Arsenal Preview | Team News & Key Men

Crystal Palace have struggled to put the ball in the back of the net to start the season and therefore have struggled to get points. Only Huddersfield Town have scored fewer goals to start the season, leading Palace to lose six of their first nine league matches. Their defense has been pretty good, but if they don't start scoring soon, they will see themselves sucked into a relegation race. Arsenal have won 11 straight matches in all competitions.

VAR and the Law

VAR and the Law

In the aftermath of VAR’s shambolic outing in Tottenham’s FA Cup meeting with Rochdale in February, Mark Thompson (@EveryTeam_Mark) penned a thought-provoking piece on the need to look at the laws of the game in the same way as the laws of the land.

The final international break of the season is over, and this weekend will see the return of league football for the final lap of the season. These last few games have the ability to turn a relatively good season into a miserable finish or a relatively miserable season into a good one. There is a strong fight for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th spots at the top and there is also a close fight to avoid relegation spots – 18th and 19th in …
The battle to avoid the drop is heating up, who will survive

The battle to avoid the drop is heating up, who will survive

With the title pretty much sewn up by Manchester City, there are two particularly interesting races that people are still keeping an eye on in England’s top league. Of course, the battle to finish in the top four is as close as ever with many teams vying for a shot at the big time of the Champions League. Manchester United seem secure in second but below them, it is very close and quite hard to tell who is going to …
Mamadou Sakho's Presence is Vital for Crystal Palace in their Fight for Survival

Mamadou Sakho's Presence is Vital for Crystal Palace in their Fight for Survival

After Roy Hodgson had said his central-defender Mamadou Sakho was too ‘‘scared’’ to play against Tottenham last month, the former Liverpool player was formidable as Crystal Palace picked up a crucial win away to Huddersfield. Having not won in seven games, Palace moved out of the relegation places with a vital 2-0 victory against fellow relegation candidates. Sakho returned to training the week before the game having injured his calf against Newcastle in early February, meaning his imposing presence was …
