Resilient Crystal Palace defence and clean sheet key to victory over Watford

Sam Allardyce discusses Palace's quality of late, and why it's made it easy when it comes to choosing his matchday squad.

Crystal Palace secured a hard-fought three points with only their fourth home win of the season, the first time this season that the club have had consecutive wins at home. While Palace didn't have a shot on target all game, the defensive performance and midfield resilience ensured that the Eagles would continue their good form.


Sam Allardyce has repeatedly made the case that Palace should respect the point, key to which is the need to keep clean sheets. Palace now have their third clean...

Watford provide Palace, Sam Allardyce with a chance to show their progress

Sam Allardyce and Crystal Palace drew with Watford in his first game as the club's new manager back in December.

Throughout the football season, there are occasions that stand to be a reminder of progress or deterioration, points at which results of the past can shine a light upon performances of the present. Sam Allardyce will see Saturday's match with Watford as one of those opportunities: it's a chance to right the wrongs he felt Crystal Palace committed during his first game in charge at Vicarage Road back in December 2016.

Having just been appointed manager, Allardyce went into that game against Watford...

Can Man City rebound vs. Liverpool? Wenger under pressure at West Brom

The Exploding Heads break down who would win in a showdown between the cities of Manchester and Liverpool.
The ESPN FC crew present their Premier League relegation predictions, but are there any surprises from the group?

Manchester City and Arsenal are both coming off the back of embarrassing European exits, but City's will hurt more as they were ahead against Monaco. Pep Guardiola has to rouse the troops against Liverpool, who tend to disappoint against smaller clubs but should be perfectly comfortable against the Catalan and his style of play.

Arsene Wenger is under major pressure, so has to get the fans back on his side with a big win over West Brom, while Manchester United's Europa League exploits might see...

The cost of Premier League relegation enough to make clubs panic

The ESPN FC crew present their Premier League relegation predictions, but are there any surprises from the group?
Alejandro Moreno ranks the performances of the Premier League's most expensive transfers so far this season.

Relegation is not the end of the world for a Premier League club but it is undoubtedly costly. With just over two months of the season left, the top division's current bottom three -- Sunderland, Hull and Middlesbrough -- may well be making plans to avert the financial flux that demotion will bring.

The blow can be cushioned, chiefly by getting back up as soon as possible with the benefit of parachute payments, as Hull and Burnley were able to do last season at the first attempt, but that requires...

Andros Townsend, Wilfried Zaha instrumental in vital Crystal Palace win

Crystal Palace won consecutively for the first time since last September with a performance of defensive strength and creative, clinical finishing. Palace matched West Brom's physicality throughout and deserved their 2-0 win.


Sam Allardyce will be delighted with the clean sheet. The manager has drilled the importance of defending into a side that was porous for much of the season, with each player doing their bit to keep West Brom at bay -- Tony Pulis' side just couldn't find its rhythm....

The bromance between Mesut Ozil and Mathieu Flamini shows no sign of waning despite the French midfielder having left Arsenal.

The former teammates are even taking their friendship to a cringeworthy new level by making it the topic of a new Mercedes Benz advert.
