Crystal Palace Player Ratings: Arsenal (A)

Crystal Palace Player Ratings: Arsenal (A) Crystal Palace capitalised on a shocking defensive display from Arsenal on Sunday afternoon to win 3-2 in a thrilling game at the Emirates and mathematically ensure their Premier League status for another season. Christian Benteke scored his first goal in nearly a year to give Roy Hodgson’s side the lead early on, after he was left unmarked from a Palace free kick. Mesut Ozil equalised two minutes into the second half as Arsenal came out flying following the break, but poor defending from Shkodran Mustafi allowed Wilfried Zaha to restore Palace’s lead on the hour mark.

Crystal Palace are never a side to overlook in the Premier League, especially when visiting the Eagles’ home at Selhurst Park.

Although they have struggled to certify themselves as anything other than a mid-table team over the last few seasons – their best finish being 10th place in 2015 – their ability to keep even the best teams at bay is often astonishing.

They did so this term after reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, defeating London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the process, only to bow out to a tough Watford side.

Zaha insists his future is at Crystal Palace

Zaha insists his future is at Crystal Palace Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has dismissed rumours that he is looking to leave the Eagles this summer, according to a report on Goal. The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move back to Manchester United in recent weeks. But Zaha has insisted that he is fully focused on the task at hand with Palace. He said: “My future is at Palace.” “I am at Palace, I am not thinking about anything [else]. I’m just playing my football and I will just see what the future holds for me.” The forward signed a new contract with Palace in August and the deal is scheduled to expire in 2023.

Roy Hodgson is hoping to eclipse the Houdini act he once performed at Fulham by plotting his ‘greatest escape’ from Premier League relegation with improving Crystal Palace .

Crystal Palace are now seven points clear of the relegation zone after two goals from Christian Benteke Liverpool v Crystal Palace : Premier League – as it happened. Getting to the end of the season against a plethora of similar teams who will offer the same challenges as today will be torture.

What they lack is an attacking threat that can properly challenge the top half of the table and earn more points to help challenge for European qualification.

Their star player, Wilfried Zaha, has accumulated plenty of interest from the top six clubs over recent transfer windows.

With eight goals and eight assists this season, the Ivorian is a vital part of the Palace attack; should they let him go this summer, it is vital they begin to look for a worthy replacement.

In any case, though, the Eagles need more attacking muscle. Here are five players who would add something different to Roy Hodgson’s squad.

Palace interested in deal for Borre.
Crystal Palace are interested in a deal to sign River Plate striker Rafael Santos Borre in the summer. According to ESPN, via Sport Witness, Palace are keen to bring Borre to England as they look to strengthen their attack. Palace signed Michy Batshuayi on loan in January, but appear to be planning for life after he returns to Chelsea at the end of the season. The report claims that Borre would cost Palace €30m, as that is his current release clause at River Plate. Mexican side Monterrey are also said to be keen on a deal for the former Atletico Madrid front man.
