Christian Benteke shows promise but Pardew must keep busy at Palace

Alan Pardew admits goals have been hard to come by for Crystal Palace.

The EFL Cup provided a welcome respite from the pressures of Premier League football for Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew this week, allowing him to give the unfit and untested an opportunity to stretch those muscles, kick a few passes about and to, crucially, win a game.

It wasn't a monumental victory. Palace defeated League 2 Blackpool with an ease that wasn't reflected by the meagre 2-0 scoreline -- but it was a win, and opened up an opportunity for the 7000 supporters that attended to see...

Klopp's Tottenham test, Tigers for Mourinho as Wenger battles Hornets

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol has his say on Daniel Sturridge's position problems at Liverpool.

Liverpool's trip to Tottenham is the headline match from the final round of Premier League fixtures before the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to bounce back following their shock 2-0 defeat at Burnley last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester United travel to Hull City, who are surprisingly defending a 100 percent record in the Premier League so far. That's not the case for Leicester, though, with the defending champions hosting Swansea still searching for their first win of...

Palace failed to make chances count in loss to Spurs as defence held strong

A goal from Victor Wanyama helped Tottenham earn a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace to secure their first win of the season.

Crystal Palace toiled for almost 90 minutes in desperate search of a point or more against a well organised Tottenham Hotspur side. A reliance on luck and sheer-minded perseverance wasn't enough, however, as the Eagles succumbed to an 83rd-minute winner from Spurs midfielder Vincent Wanyama.

Christian Benteke sorry after Twitter account said he played for Burnley

Christian Benteke's spell at Crystal Palace got off to a rather shaky start on Saturday.

After the big Belgian's move from Liverpool to Selhurst Park was confirmed, his Twitter account was updated to reflect his new club.

Riyad Mahrez has handed Leicester a boost before the visit of Arsenal by extending his contract.

Champions Leicester face last season's runners-up Arsenal this weekend in a match that could give fans some early clues in the title race. 

Elsewhere, the first Friday night match of the new season sees Jose Mourinho's home debut as Manchester United manager in the Premier League, with Southampton looking to spoil the party with a third win in succession at Old Trafford.

Crystal Palace owe Mile Jedinak for establishing them in Premier League

A goal from Salomon Rondon gave West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 away win over Crystal Palace in the first weekend of the Premier League.
Mile Jedinak and Scott Dann
Mile Jedinak was stripped of the captaincy this season.

It is a testament to Mile Jedinak's leadership qualities that when former teammates speak about him, they do so in glowing terms that highlight his qualities as a person and a player.

For most Crystal Palace fans, Jedinak has been an iconic leader -- up there with greats like Jim Cannon and Geoff Thomas -- as an establishing force in the side. It might also be why his current manager feels it's time for him to move on.

The Australia international arrived at Palace in 2011 with the club in serious...
