Can Arsenal handle Crystal Palace’s physicality this weekend? 0

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has stoked up their clash against Arsenal this weekend by insisting their physicality could be too much for the Gunners to cope with. The Eagles could start with former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Connor Wickham in attack, while playing direct to bulldoze their way to goal.

Arsenal often struggle to match the physical levels of clubs, and Pardew believes that could happen when the two sides meet at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. “Players of that size, power and pace can terrorise defences,” said Pardew. “That’s what we want Connor and Ade to do for us. Connor’s had some terrific games for us but just not enough of them.”

Arsenal will attempt to bounce back from their opening day defeat against West Ham with a win at Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Palace kicked-off their Premier League campaign with a 3-1 victory over league new boys Norwich on Saturday. Eagles new signing Yohan Cabaye had an instant impact with a goal on his debut and Alan Pardew’s side produced an impressive performance.

The Eagles have certainly found form under Pardew, having won their last three games in the Premier League. However, history is against Palace, as they have suffered defeats in their last five meetings with the Gunners.

Arsenal host Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night with a chance to go four points clear of Everton in the race for fourth place and Champions League football.

The Gunners seem to have regained some form in recent games, having defeated Hull City 3-0 in their last outing. That win over Hull followed a 3-1 win over London rivals West Ham which got the Gunners back to winning ways.

The back-to-back wins against the Hammers and Tigers ended a run of four top-flight games without a victory, with the Gunners losing two and drawing two.

In a frantic deadline day for many clubs, it was quiet on Tyneside with Newcastle failing to receive an improved bid from Arsenal for their deep-lying playmaker Yohan Cabaye.

The 27-year old was subject of a £10M bid on the eve of Newcastle’s first league game to Manchester City. Manager Alan Pardew allowed the Frenchman to return home after ‘having his head turned’ by the offer.

However, Arsenal have since failed to up their bid to Newcastle’s valuation, and Cabaye will be staying with the Magpies.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has told Arsenal to hurry up with making a second bid for midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

‘I don’t know until 11pm (on Monday). We’ve told his agent to we have to replace Cabaye if we sell him, and we can’t afford to spend before he goes because we’re not sure if he is leaving. (Arsenal’s) bid needs to come in. If not, it won’t happen.’

The 27-year old has been linked with a potential move after the Gunners made a £10M bid on the eve of Newcastle first Premier League game of the season.

Newcastle’s director of football Joe Kinnear has revealed Arsenal are in talks with the side over the sale of midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Arsenal have already made a failed bid of around £10M for the Frenchman, and Kinnear has said the club have told manager Arsene Wenger exactly how much he will need to spend in order to procure his signature.

The London side have been looking for a central-midfielder this summer, and they have been even more desperate to bring the 27-year old in as they are still yet to make a big signing as promised to the fans.

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye looks increasingly likely of joining league compatriots Arsenal, after he was once again an omission from the Magpies’ starting line-up for their recent 0-0 draw against West Ham United.

The 27-year old has been enquired about by the Gunners – who made a £10M bid on the eve of Newcastle’s first Premier League game against Manchester City.

Manager Alan Pardew revealed he told Cabaye to go home after having his head turned by the news – which he heard from a third party.

Newcastle United have rejected Arsenal’s £10M bid for midfielder Yohan Cabaye – citing the offer as ‘derisory’.

Arsenal made the approach for Cabaye on the eve of Newcastle’s first Premier League game of the 2013/14 season.

Subsequently, the Frenchman was sent home before the game after manager Alan Pardew revealed his player had his ‘head turned by the bid’. He’s furious at the timing of Arsenal’s approach and questioned why the London side didn’t wait until the following day.

Newcastle lost their match against Manchester City 4-0, and during the post-match interview, Pardew adamantly stated how the result would have been different had Cabaye played.
