Comments:

League position: 13th Crystal Palace’s only win at home against Arsenal in a league game was on 10 November 1979 when David Swindlehurst scored the only goal. This was only their second defeat in their last eight Premier League games. They have won seven of 30 home London derbies in the Premier League. On making his Palace debut, Shola Ameobi increased his record of making more substitute appearances than any other player in the history of the Premier League (139). Yannick Bolasie made his 100th appearance for Crystal Palace. Glenn Murray scored in the fourth minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Arsenal are now unbeaten in their last 12 visits to Selhurst Park in all competitions. Today's winner was Olivier Giroud's 50th goal for the Gunners in all competitions. Five of Arsenal’s seven London derbies so far this season have ended 2-1, winning four of them. They have lost three of their last 19 games in all competitions.
