Decade's best: Palace put three past Arsenal - 2017

25 December 2019

Just nine days after defeating top of the table Chelsea, Crystal Palace pulled off another astonishing victory when they over-ran Arsenal at Selhurst Park.

Palace secured a 3-0 victory in an evening that sat between wins over Chelsea and Liverpool - a period the club passed the 40-point mark despite playing five of the league's top six in eight games.

Andros Townsend kick-started the win over the Gunners with a close-range finish and Yohan Cabaye extended the south Londoners' lead to two after an hour. Palace contained Arsenal to the point the visitors failed to record a single shot on target in the second-half and ensured victory when Luka Milivojevic added a third from the spot.

The win was Palace's first over Arsenal since 1994.

That stand-out evening in SE25 will last long in the memory, but is it the greatest moment Palace has enjoyed over the last decade? Or does something else edge it out? Vote below!
