Crystal Palace 2-3 Arsenal

Winning the double Wenger became the first foreign manager to win the Premier League and FA Cup double in England in 1997-98. Arsenal overturned a 13-point deficit to win the title before beating Newcastle in the cup final

Arsenal will be desperate to close the gap on the top four when we travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace this evening.

The result leaves Arsene Wenger's men sixth in the league but level on points with fifth-placed Spurs and only a point behind Liverpool in the fourth Champions League spot.

Although Palace went into the match without a defeat in their previous eight top-flight outings, Arsenal were well in charge for the majority of the first half and were fully deserving of the opening goal through Shkodran Mustafi in the 25th minute.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims he is "not fearful" of losing Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window.

They pouted up a storm for a joint picture before Kim zoomed in on Khloe's rounded tum, over which she'd placed a protective hand. In a clip posted to Khloé's Snapchat today, the 20-year-old confirmed that she had been at the party.

At that point Palace were in the ascendancy but Sanchez's quick double soon killed off the home side's hopes.

Arsenal needed time to recover from this setback, and it was only after a lethargic clearance from Palace striker Christian Benteke after the hour mark that the Gunners were gifted the chance they needed. When Benteke half-heartedly cleared a corner to Calum Chambers, the defender returned possession to the Palace box and watched as Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez combined to create space for the latter to strike into the bottom left corner.

As is so often the case with Arsenal, only with a further goal would victory begin to look likely, but on this occasion it followed four minutes later. Jack Wilshere lifted a terrific pass over the top, Sanchez controlled on his thigh, delivered into his stride, and slipped past Speroni.

However, it was not enough and the Gunners ended Palace's recent unbeaten run with a decent, if not entirely convincing win.

But as full-time drew nearer, Palace perked up and Arsenal sat deeper, so it was not entirely surprising that James Tomkins nodded in a livener with four minutes of injury-time still to play.
