Palace: Player Ratings

A bread and butter win against a poor Palace, with Özil out, presumably to flu, it gave us a chance to see what life would be like with a proper Mesut injury and to my surprise it didn't look as bad as I feared. His absence seemed to embolden some; freed from having to pass it to the German Genius whenever he is available; players started to express themselves more than usual and it worked well.

Arsenal managed to pull off a last gasp draw with Manchester United yesterday, with the Gunners scoring an equalising goal in the 89th minute. A Olivier Giroud header was enough to peg back the hosts, who had looked far superior throughout the match, against an Arsenal side that just didn't look on the ball.

He may be a big, strapping lump of a man now but Olivier Giroud has admitted that, as an impressionable 10-year-old, he developed an irrational fear of 1980s sitcom puppet ALF.

Discussing the phobia in the Arsenal programme for today's big ding-dong with Tottenham, Giroud revealed that his young soul was tormented by the very existence of ALF, the cat-eating alien star of the American sci-fi sitcom of the same name.

Character building, yes, character building is the way I would describe that win and probably the best preparation for Sunday we could have had. What, I hear you say; surely another six-nil win would have been better giving us the chance to rest Ozil and Sanchez after seventy minutes? Not necessarily, there is no way it is going to be a stroll in the park on Sunday and if we go a goal behind we will have had very recent experience in knowing how to put it right.

To be quite honest I had absolutely no idea which country PFC Ludogorets Razgrad came from until I started writing this. Bulgaria is the answer and I sincerely hope my appalling ignorance and downright lack of awareness is not matched by the manager and team of Arsenal Football Club.

Looking at Ludogorets' record in the Champions League, their biggest home win was 1-0 v Basel in 2014 and their biggest away defeats were both 4-0 to Basel (again) and Real Madrid (both in 2014).
