'Guarantee' delivered on Crystal Palace transfer, 'succulent' offer from Eagles

"You look at that, a couple of decisions have gone against us in this run, a few injuries, so I'm not overly disappointed".

"The only thing that interests me - and I have said it right from the start - is where we are on the final day of May and being one place above the relegation zone".

Bakary Sako's 21st minute goal was enough to give Crystal Palace victory over Burnley following a battling performance in SE25.

With no points or goals from their first seven matches, the South London side are now knocking on the door of the top half of the table after their latest result, a 1-0 win at home to Burnley yesterday, and riding high on confidence ahead of a trip north of the river to face Arsenal next week. "I would like to hope he will be closer to one month rather than months".


Tarkowski was then well placed to turn a McArthur effort behind after linking up with Zaha, as Palace threatened to kill off the game with a second goal.

"He has done well very recently for us".

"The margins were tight early in the season when we were winning a lot of games, and the margins are tight now. We started to really try and be more productive than we were first half". We knew more questions would be asked of our back four and goalkeeper in the second half but I'm delighted that we were able to withstand that test.

His decision to return to management with the Eagles initially looked ill-judged when he lost his first three league games in charge.


"Now, we have to make them come our way".

"He has waited a long time at Tottenham but they have got a very deep squad so while he has tried to earn his chance there, it hasn't come round".

Burnley haven't come from behind to win in the Premier League under Sean Dyche ever, and almost found their task even more hard as James McArthur stormed into tap into an empty net, superb defending by Ben Mee keeping the midfielder out.
