Rampant Arsenal put four past Palace to end winless run

Rampant Arsenal put four past Palace to end winless run

Arsenal showed there was plenty of life after Alexis Sanchez as they beat Crystal Palace 4-1 in the Premier League on Saturday without the Manchester United-bound Chilean forward.

Elsewhere, Manchester United moved to within nine points of runaway league leaders Manchester City with a 1-0 win at Burnley.

A shell-shocked Palace were being dismantled when Alexandre Lacazette got his name on the scoresheet and his side's fourth goal, within the first 30 minutes of a complete mismatch in terms of being a contest.

Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Wilshere, Elneny, Xhaka, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacaztte.

Oumar Niasse rescued a point for Everton against West Brom, but the game was overshadowed by a serious injury for Toffees midfielder James McCarthy, who was taken off on a stretcher.


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

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has endured a torrid 2018 so far but he at last has something to smile about. Palace boss Roy Hodgson warned in the build up to this game that his team are still involved in a relegation battle and, on this evidence, he was not wrong. Patrick Vieira was the first when he claimed a 90th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Derby at Highbury in December 1996.

Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny are back from their respective injuries for Arsenal, and Mesut Özil may be as well.

The first corner of the game merely five minutes into proceedings saw Monreal latch onto the in-swinging delivery at the back post where he was allowed to head home without opposition - a goal which proved to be an ominous sign of things to come for the visitors.

The good times seem to be back for Nigerian stars in England as Alex Iwobi joined the goal scoring list on Saturday; scoring one of the goals in the 4-1 demolition of Crystal Palace.
