Arsenal’s match winner says it’s the result that matters..

There was a great swell of relief around the Emirates when Aaron Ramsey bundled the ball in the back of the net to give Arsenal there first opening day win since 2009. But according to last year’s Player Of The Year, it is only the result that matters.

“It was very difficult,” Ramsey told Sky Sports. “They lost their manager but you’d never have known the way they played. They defended really well and it was tough to break down.

“But that’s irrelevant now – the result was what we were looking for and we got the three points.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Preview, Line up and Predicted score

It’s great to have proper football back now and there seems to be a lot of promise this season. Arsenal have just won a major trophy in May, we’ve made a major signing on and off the pitch and we seem to be raring to go after our win in the Community Shield.

I was expecting this to be an extremely difficult game with Pulis at the helm but he’s just left Palace by mutual consent and now they’ll face us without a proper manager. This usually means two things: They either struggle to stick to a game plan and are easy pickings or they work together and play above their normal level so they impress their new manager. Either way, we can’t take this game lightly because of Pulis’ departure.

Pick your Arsenal team to face Crystal Palace….

With the new Premier League season set to get under way, Arsenal find themselves in a very promising position to go all the way when compared to recent years. The breaking of the infamous trophy drought and the summer acquisitions by Arsene Wenger, most notably Alexis Sanchez, are a clear sign of the Gunners intentions for this season.

Arsenal kick off their campaign at home to Crystal Palace, who have just seen manager Tony Pulis depart from the club on debatable circumstances. With a promising start certainly a necessity against a deflated Palace side, just who should Arsene Wenger choose to get Arsenal’s new campaign off to a flying start?

Crystal Palace will be a good opening test for Arsenal

Facing Palace in the Premier League opener will be a good challenge for Arsenal by SE

Anticipation and apprehension have been aplenty in the weeks leading up to this one, and if you’re someone associated with Arsenal, the wait must have felt longer than it actually was.
From valuable acquisitions in the transfer market to have had a very good pre-season, Arsenal must surely be cock-a-hoop going into the new season. The FA Community Shield mauling of Manchester City should have raised the confidence levels, ahead of the new season, even more. But, the first Premier League weekend sees Arsenal take on Crystal Palace at the Emirates, and mind you it won’t be easy.

Arsenal v Palace, Preview, Line-Up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace preview, line up and predicted score by KJ

It was disappointing for Arsenal to only get the draw against Southampton midweek as it has allowed Manchester City to take the top spot and we know they won’t drop many points as the season wears on. However, Chitty will be facing Chelsea on Monday evening and we have the potential to apply pressure on them by securing a win against Palace.

Thankfully, after the transfer window goings on(or lack of them), Arsenal fans have a game to watch against Crystal Palce. It is a London derby, albeit a small one, but the stakes are certainly high, with Arsenal needing to obtain all three points in order to maintain a title challenge, whilst the opposition Crystal Palace need to keep grabbing as many points as they can in order to avoid what could otherwise be a relegation scrap for them.

Giroud not Ozil is assist king of Premier League!

Olivier Giroud has been a beast for Arsenal this season, and the French international is one of the main reasons why the Gunners are sitting on top of the Premier League. As well as showing himself to be a much better finisher than we thought he looked in his debut season, Giroud’s two assists against Norwich put him at the top of the table for league assists.

Wilshere believes Arsenal will bounce straight back

You get the impression from Jack Wilshere that he would love for Arsenal to be playing Borussia Dortmund again instead of Crystal Palace this weekend. The 21-year old was clearly disappointed, as were we all, with the result on Tuesday, but it has not even dented his belief Arsenal and their ability to turn the result on it’s head in Germany.

Bendtner’s words herald new start to his Arsenal career

I am one of the many Arsenal fans who hoped that this summer would spell the end of the road at Arsenal for Nicklas Bendtner. The 25-year old Denmark international seems to have been on his way out of the club forever, but he is still a Gunner after a deadline day transfer to Crystal Palace collapsed, according to Sky Sports, because Arsenal’s late move to bring in another striker did not happen.

Why the hell should Arsenal pay Bendtner to leave?

There is a strange development in the interminable case of Arsenal and their attempts to get the unwanted Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner off the wage bill at the club. We have tried to loan him out to help him secure a permanent transfer away from the Emirates, but subsequent spells at Birmingham City, Sunderland and Juventus have all seen the supremely confident(some might say deluded) striker return to Arsenal to collect his weekly wages.

The latest news, reported by Metro, is that Arsenal are willing to pay the 25-year old Danish international around £3 million to get rid of him once and for all. This seems incredible and does not seem to make much sense.

Conflicting reports surround Arsenal Target Zaha

Depending on which reports you read, The Gunners fan and Arsenal transfer target, Wilfried Zaha, has either already met Alex Ferguson and the deal is done, or had no contact with Manchester United at all. A few days ago, United apparently offered around £5 million for the 20-year old winger, which was rejected outright.

Crystal Palace were looking for well over £10 million for the highly rated championship player, so the decision to turn down the offer was easy. United want to pay as little as possible up front and were offering staggered payments, but Palace wanted a good sum up front.
