Palace 8/15 to go down, as Arsenal identify Zaha as Sanchez replacement 1

According to reports from the Metro (among others), Arsenal are lining up a £35million bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha as a replacement for wantaway Chilean international Alexis Sanchez.

The Metro reports that Manchester City could renew their interest in Sanchez in the winter transfer window. However, if the Chilean fails to secure a move in the January transfer window, he will likely leave the Gunners next summer as a free agent.

That obviously means Arsenal need to find a replacement for the 28-year-old, as well as Mesut Ozil who also looks set to leave.

Calls for Arsene Wenger’s head appear to be falling on deaf ears and as things stand at this point the Arsenal boss is likely to put pen to paper on a new two-year contract, despite a frustrating closure to the Premier League season.

The Gunners are coming off from a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park with their top-four chances sustaining a fresh blow in a game which saw plenty of first-team stars being slammed for their below-par performances.

Arsenal’s hopes of securing Champions League football for next season took a heavy blow as they went down to a 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just three minutes. A good team move eventually saw the ball fall for Yohan Cabaye, who got his shot horribly wrong and the Frenchman’s effort went wide of Emiliano Martinez’s goal.

It was Palace who offered the next threat on goal too, as midfielder Luka Milivojevic fired just wide of Martinez near post. The Gunners hit back on nine minutes. The ball fell to Mohamed Elneny who curled an effort towards the far corner of the net, only for Wayne Hennessey to produce a fantastic save.

Arsenal fell further behind their rivals for a Champions League spot on Saturday afternoon, as both third-place Liverpool and fourth-place Manchester City recorded victories. Sixth-place Manchester United face bottom club Sunderland on Sunday, so the Gunners could be sixth-place by the time they kick-off on Monday at Crystal Palace.

Pressure is on Arsenal

Arsenal’s continuous presence in the Champions League for the last two decades is in major danger of ending this season. The Gunners are now seven points behind City in the table, although the Gunners do have two games in hand on the men from Manchester.

Crystal Palace hotshot Wilfried Zaha is having a fantastic season at Selhurst Park and the increased interest from Premier League’s top sides can hardly come as a surprise.

The Ivory Coast international is menacing the opposing teams on weekly basis with his impressive exploits at both club and international level.

The March break brought an incredible solo goal from the Crystal Palace man against Russia, whereas his form continued in the Premier League with a goal and assist in his team’s morale-boosting win over title runners Chelsea in what has become one of the shock results thus far in the season.

Arsenal claimed a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park on Saturday, with goals from Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud, before Glenn Murray claimed a consolation goal late-on for the home side.

Arsenal had a goal disallowed on four minutes after Mesut Ozil was ruled to be offside by the referee’s assistant. The Gunners were awarded a penalty kick on seven minutes, as Danny Welbeck was brought down in the penalty area by Pape Souare.

Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla stepped-up to take it and sent Palace keeper Julian Speroni the wrong way with the spot-kick to give the Gunners the lead. On ten minutes Fraizer Campbell headed an effort straight at Gunners defender Calum Chambers from a corner kick.
