Arsenal vs Crystal Palace

Yohan Cabaye has less than half a year remaining on his Crystal Palace contract

Luka Milivojevic scored late on, but Palace slipped to 13th in the table. They are now placed at the 6th spot in the league table with 39 points to their name after 23 games.

The Eagles showed one adjustment to the side who beat Burnley 1-0 last time out, with Yohan Cabaye starting in place of Jairo Riedewald.

The home side got off to an explosive start against Crystal Palace with Nacho Monreal heading home after just six minutes from a corner.

After their encouraging goalless draw against league leaders, Manchester City, Roy Hodgson's troops have won back to back league games, against Southampton and Burnley and thus, they are certainly a side against whom Wenger can not afford to be complacent.

The misery was not yet over for the visitors as two then became three, then four before the clock even had chance to tick-over its 23rd minute.

Roy Hodgson watched on glumly as Arsenal added another from their next corner as the static Palace defence allowed Monreal to drift it at the back post and cross for the fit-again Koscielny to bundle in a third.

Laurent Koscielny made it 3-0 to the home side just three minutes later, and Alexandre Lacazette netted in the 22nd minute to wrap up the three points for the home side before half-time.

The Gunners are not in their best run of form of late, having won none of their last 3 games across all competitions.

Palace finally forced Petr Cech into his first save, but it was a routine one for the Arsenal goalkeeper as Bakary Sako's shot was a weak one.

The second half was played as expected, with the Gunners saving energy and Palace trying hard to not conceded any more and embarrass themselves, but other than Wilshere and Xhaka going down and looking injured there was little to tell until Luka Milivojevic finally got one back with 12 minutes to go, but we were hardly anxious.

Arsenal will now switch gears to the second leg of their semi-final League Cup tie against Chelsea on Wednesday before continuing their league campaign with a trip to the Liberty Stadium the following week.
