Speaking to cpfc.co.uk earlier in the year, the club's record appearance holder – who clocked up 660 games for Palace, having come through the club's youth system – believes Palace can take pride in its decade-long stint in the league – and its future prospects on and off the pitch.
Cannon explained: “The expectations here have changed. When you first come in, you just want to make sure you stay in the Premier League.
“In the earlier years after getting promoted, the quality of players maybe wasn’t as good as we have now. Being a more established team now, the players you’re looking to bring in have to be a little bit better than maybe what we had five or six years ago.
"You can't take anything for granted. Southampton have been in the league for 10 years and they’ve just been relegated.
“I think we’ve proven that we can bring in quality players. We’ve got two of the best centre-halves in the country [in Marc Guéhi and Joachim Andersen]. I think we’ve got one of the best right wingers in [Michael] Olise, and [Ebere] Eze has just found a new lease of life, when you think about how long he was out for.
“The whole thing has changed and once you become a bit more established it gives the club more leeway to work on things. We’re not the richest of clubs, but if we keep moving up slowly and doing what we’re doing then I’m sure we’ll continue to do well and compete.
"For every club, it’s really a case of trying to improve every year."
