James McArthur scored a goal but it looked to be wrongly deemed offside and that summed up a forgettable day for Crystal Palace as they were run over by Manchester City at the Etihad, 3-0.
Palace took a safe approach hoping City would not have their usual attack flowing minus a true striker in their XI and for the first 45 minutes, the plan was working. Though City had the lion's share of possession and took 8 first half shots to just one for the Eagles, Palace's shot was the only one that was on target. City began to click as the second half picked up and Palace found themselves down 2-0 in quick fashion. McArthur looked to have given them a fighting chance in the 68th minute though, when he scored from a Yannick Bolasie cross. The goal should have stood but it was adjudged offside. A bitter pill to swallow as the outcome may have been different, but in all likelihood, City were going to get three points from this regardless. Dec 20 - 10:01 AM

Crystal Palace complete their second signing on deadline day with the capture of James McArthur from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

While the fee hasn't been made official, it is thought to be in the neighborhood of £7m , which would be a club record. McArthur should see himself go straight in as a regular for Neil Warnock, set to partner Mile Jedinak in the center of midfield. At 26, McArthur is in the prime of his career and should be an integral part of how the season plays out for the Eagles.

Leicester and Wigan have agreed on a fee for the rights to James McArthur.

The Wigan midfielder has been pursued by Leicester in recent weeks and the Foxes have finally made an offer big enough. Leicester boss Niger Pearson has repeatedly stated that he's happy with his players but needs more options to compete in the Premier League and it's hard to imagine McArthur as an every game starter. We don't anticipate to see McArthur as a great fantasy option this season.
