Arsenal turned in another pathetic performance in the Premier League as they lost to Crystal Palace in the most predictable fashion.

Arsenal arrived at Selhurst Park late and didn’t arrive onto the pitch for their pre-game warm-up until 22 minutes before kick-off. Some might argue they never turned up at all, and they’d have a string case.

A dry pitch greeted them when they did finally get started, no doubt a tactic to slow Arsenal’s passing game. Arsenal, as you know, need no help doing this and it was a slow start again from the Gunners. And a slow middle and end.

Palace pressed hard and fast, a proven tactic against this Arsenal side, and they got results. One up midway through the first half, Arsenal had no answer. When Yahan Cabaye smashed home a second in the 62nd minute, it was game over.
