In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast’s, I review the games against Arsenal and Leicester City by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match.

Palace outclassed Arsenal to a 3-0 win — The Eagles’ first win against the Gunners in 23 years, and their first in SE25 since 1979. Goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic sealed the win in a performance which showed commitment, energy, physicality and creativity.

How much better is Townsend? Should Luka be the new penalty taker? Will Palace avoid the drop?

All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast.

Palace came from 2-0 behind to draw 2-2. Goals from Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke got Allardyce’s men back into the game, which they could have gone on to win. The performance showed backbone and bite and where the players would previously have allowed their heads to drop, they instead reacted immediately.

Is Cabaye better in an advanced role? Is Townsend the best improved played under Allardyce? Will Palace avoid the drop?
