If you’re not lucky enough to have a ticket for today’s game against Arsenal at The Emirates, there are plenty of other ways you can watch the game from the comfort of your own home, as you can see from the link attached below.
Having come away disappointed to only get a point from his first game in charge of the Eagles away to Watford earlier this week, Sam Allardyce will no doubt be looking for a spirited display from his new players when they step out to take on Arsene Wenger’s high-flying Gunners in North London this afternoon.
Whilst you can almost guarantee that it won’t be the most aesthetically pleasing of performances from us in front of the Sky Sports cameras, I don’t think I’m alone in stating that I feel infinitely more positive about our chances of travelling back to SE25 with at least a point than I would have done if Alan Pardew was still a presence in the Palace dugout.
For all of the criticism thrown Arsene Wenger’s way in recent years, this term has seen an improvement in his side’s general play, with a potential win today lifting them to within 9 points of a Chelsea side who tied the record for most consecutive wins in a Premier League season by beating Stoke City 4-2 at Stamford Bridge yesterday. It’s going to be an extremely tough ask for Big Sam and his players but it certainly won’t be something that he shies away from.
We may not have had the best of times in 2016 but with a new year comes fresh optimism of better things to come. Should we be able to come away from today’s game with a point or even three (I know, don’t be ridiculous) we’ll already be feeling a great deal more positive about the remaining games of the Premier League season.
