Big Sam's Crystal Palace have picked up where Alan Pardew's left off with a 2-0 loss at the Emirates on New Year's Day.
It wasn't so much that the Eagles lost on Sunday as how it happened. There isn't much to be done about incredible acts of skill like Olivier Giroud's opener but the rest of the match, including Alex Iwobi's goal, was characterized by sloppy play at the back. The Palace defense nearly gifted Alexis Sanchez a goal. Big Sam will have to clean up the defense if he expects results to improve at Selhurst Park. Jan 1 - 3:28 PM
