  • Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: Clubs need stability

Palace were fortunate to remain in 16th place without even kicking a ball after a dramatic round of Boxing Day fixtures, meaning a win against their London rivals would put them in a very comfortable position in the scrap for survival.

Following Arsenal's win, Wilshere was asked: 'Another game under your belt...are you back to your old best yet?' If the whispers are to be believed, Pep Guardiola plans to make an obnoxiously large offer for Sanchez, and Arsenal would be tempted to accept it. But without him, whoever they bring in instead, they will have far less chance of returning to elite competition, which will cost them a fair whack of that fee.

Crystal Palace: Speroni 5, Kelly 6, Danny 5, Tomkins 6, Schlupp 6, Milivojevic 5, Cabaye 5, Loftus-Cheek 5, Townsend 6, Zaha 7, Benteke 5.

Manchester United loanee Timothy Fosu-Mensah may be available once again after a recent hamstring complaint, whilst Christian Benteke is back again after serving a one game ban. Subs: Maitland-Niles 6, Coquelin 6.

Six minutes later, Arsenal would have been two up but for Speroni who produced an excellent, one-handed reaction save after Ozil had latched onto Sanchez's superbly weighted through ball. "I can only repeat what I said until now".

Crystal Palace. 2, Arsenal.

Zaha made the point he believed he deserved more protection too vigorously to referee Michael Oliver as they left the pitch at half time and could have been sent off after sarcastically reacting to the match official's decision to show him a yellow card.

At that point Palace were in the ascendancy but Sanchez's quick double soon killed off the home side's hopes. Wislhere, given time on halfway, lifts a wondrous pass over the top for Sanchez, who takes it beautifully on his knee, opens his body, and slips a finish past Speroni.

James Tomkins gave Palace a lifeline on 89 minutes with a headed consolation from Townsend's corner but the Eagles ran out of time.
