Great result and the lads played well although I am a bit concerned about the possession United had in the second half a bit like the Chelsea game. Were we forced back or was the plan to concede the ball to the opposition and then hit them on the break?

David Luiz said they realise they're not fit enough yet (which begs the question what was happening before) but thing are improving. He and Sokratis were immense yesterday IMO.

Starting to look very good and Arteta has definately made an impression, not only on the players and fans to.
Not a fan of this score many as you can in the first half and defend like hell in the second tactic.
But as long as we keep winning who cares.
Thought Kolasniac played out of his skin and love the way Saka comes on and nothing fazes him.
Onwards and upwards.

For the first 25 minutes we completely dominated Palace, the next twenty minutes Palace had the better of it. Second half we reverted to letting ourselves be pushed back and in the end we were glad of a point. PEA didn`t mean to injure the Palace player but it was a bad tackle and he couldn`t complain about being sent off. Is it a two or three game ban?

I'm still behind the sofa for this one. They're this season's surprise package and are very good away. We should have had a blatant penalty at their place but VAR don't give us anything for some reason.

Mike Dean on his 500th game is ref , Martin Atkinson is 4 th official , On the VAR panel Paul Tierney .

We're screwed.

And the Pepe lack of VAR proves the point.

Frustrated that Arteta has given the poor performing players a chance and really apart from a slight improvement they still look poor.
Who would take Xhaka,Torrier,Ozil,Mustafi,the Greek in the prem apart from the relegation threatened teams.
I would have thought he would be thinking of getting rid rather then trying to make them work.
Season in the league is right off ,so start building for next.
For me it's same as same as ,and it's no good .

Any changes will come when replacements are available . Kicking out half a dozen now would be tantamount to asking for a relegation fight . Currently we are reasonably safe in mid table and becoming difficult to beat . Plans for next season should be upper most in the clubs mind only then will we see how much ambition it has.

Outplayed them for thirty minutes at our place and then ran out of steam.
Interesting if we are fitter and more savvy.
Fascinating game
