No Sanchez, No Problem As Arsenal Rout Palace

No Sanchez, No Problem As Arsenal Rout Palace

Sead Kolasinac seems to have not done enough to start but the big news is the absence of Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal host Crystal Palace.

Arsenal will hope to seal deals for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the transfer window, but neither has been completed yet.

Burnley 0-1 Manchester United Anthony Martial's third goal in as many Premier League matches earned second-placed Manchester United victory at Burnley as they kept up the pressure on leaders Manchester City. Assuming their score holds against Palace, they will still be in sixth.

Ozil exchanged passes with Jack Wilshere and upon receiving the return, flicked a sumptuous backheel into the path of Lacazette, who swept home first-time into the bottom-right corner.

Four minutes later it was 2-0 as a loose clearance was picked up by Monreal and his ball in from the left was converted from close range by the arriving Alex Iwobi.

Luka Milivojevic converted from Christian Benteke's flick-on from the corner to pull one back for Palace in the 78th minute.

Arsene Wenger made four changes to the team beaten 2-1 at Bournemouth, with Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil and Mohamed Elneny handed recalls.

To make matters worse, Yohan Cabaye was carried off on a stretcher with what looked like a knee injury in the last minute.

City, however, will restore its 12-point lead if, following a 4-3 defeat by Liverpool last week that ended its unbeaten league run, it beats struggling Newcastle in Saturday's late kick-off at the Etihad.

Arsenal's Nigerian striker Alex Iwobi (L) shoots by Crystal Palace's Welsh goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey during a football match at the Emirates Stadium in London on January 20, 2018.

Monreal limped off with a knock before the interval, but Arsenal were in such command that Wenger could afford to send on 18-year-old forward Reiss Nelson for his Premier League debut in the second half.

Despite Arsenal's woes, Palace boss Roy Hodgson believes the vilification of Wenger is unjustified.
