A very good performance, completely in control. We still looked pretty toothless going forward until the Alonso free-kick but hopefully Lukaku will add another dimension to our game which will see us really kick on. 
Second half was a professional job, off to a winning start and that’s all that matters until everyone is back up to speed and we’re full strength.

 

My only complaint is we need to wait until next weekend to watch us again! We better beat Arsenal, you just know this will be the one game of the season that they decide to turn up!

That was suppose to be his first season with us wasn’t it? :laugh2:

It wasn't relegation battle though, this palace team wil lose a lot of games. You need to claw, scrap for points

Dominant performance

Special mention to Kovacic who put in 120 in midweek and still had a lot in the tank

Jorginho along with Kovacic ran the show

Great free kick from Alonso ...vital as we were struggling to break Palace down. He also put in a shift midweek

Chalobah with the perfect debut capped by a goal 

Perfect week

I think it's between Chalobah and Alonso.

Difficult choice, Marcos played well and just might keep Chillwell out if he continues to play like he did today, but I think against a top 8 side I'd prefer Chillwell as Marcos can't play a defensive game.

All of this hope and optimism, right in time for our annual stinker against Arsenal.

That is because they have no pressure playing us. There isn't a talk of Arsenal title tilt.

Great start. Havertz and Christensen looks combative today. Taken no sh*t from roughhousing by some Palace players.

Vieira's in for a tough season if he can't figure out a way to put together a coherent attack.

He had a great game, not to take anything away from him but you’re right. He was caught out for the Rudi block where he was way up the pitch and he doesn’t have the pace to recover. It was still a great performance but against the better teams it’s a risk.
