Arsenal survive Palace late scare to secure 3rd place

Well, Arsenal never looked settled for the entire 90 minutes at Selhurst Park. However, against the run of play, the Gunners somehow led 2-0 for the majority of game. Cazorla’s penalty and Giroud strikes ensured that all the three points went the Arsenal way.

Like I said, the game was not a walk in the park. Were it for not for the Eagles lack of composure and profligacy in front of goal, the Gunners would be talking a different language.

Pardew’s late substitutions caused plenty of problems for the Arsenal defense. A late goal by Murray after a goal mouth scramble brought a nervy finish to the game.

The Gunners are on a good run. Eight wins in nine matches is not bad at all to say the least.
