Video: Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal: Giroud’s Sends Gunners Third

By on February 21, 2015

Arsenal secured a hard fought 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this afternoon to move up to third in the Premier League table.

We opened the scoring early on when Santi Cazorla tucked home an eighth minute penalty after Danny Welbeck was fouled in the area.

It was 2-0 on the stroke of half time as Welbeck’s shot was parried out by Speroni and Olivier Giorud was on hand to poke home from close range.

Palace made it a nervy final couple of minutes after pulling one back in fortuitous circumstances when Glenn Murray bundled the ball home from close range for 1-2 in the 93rd minute.

The striker then hit the post in the final minute of injury time as we held on to claim a huge three points.

Here are the goals from the game:

    Whoa! can’t imagine we’re third? guess that an ugly win is so nice than doing the display game or rather what i call sometimes as showcasing skills and having more set pieces just only to get fans upset with the end result,mr.arsene if you and your players can continue with this philosophy then it’s even possible to earn the no.2 spot at end of the season.wish you a fantafabulous run of the remaining games!
