Like the look of Gallagher this season
Dean bottled it by not sending off McArther for volleying Saka, however glad he added the extra time for when Gallagher was down in stoppage time.
Overall probably the right result. Palace very impressive especially after half time. Had the ascendancy and then the goals to show for it whereas Arsenal didn’t in the first. Lots of late chances to equalise and Lacazette was arguably Arsenal’s best player despite only playing 25 odd minutes.
Saka on the RW has been great this season. Pepe on the right has been an absolute failure. People keep bringing up the shot, that was parried and scored by a switched on Auba, but he gave the ball away a lot. And at times when he would drop deep to RWB to help, if he got the ball he turned it over on the left rather than making a safe pass on the right.Saka on the left just doesn't seem to work for Arsenal, has to be a choice between Pepe and Saka starting IMO. They looked very subdued in that first half after the early goal, and then just went further into their shells when Saka was withdrawn.
Outsanding save for Ramsdale just before HT denying Gallagher.
