So I think it would be very easy to get carried away, and ultimately the scoreline flattered us.

We didnít really do a great deal in terms of making chances. I can think of walcottís 1v1, a few Gylfi half shots from outside the box, and gylfiís 1-2 with Coleman. Really at home we should be running over them I think.

They are purely a deep block and break type side, and it continues to be a theme that we struggle to make something happen against these sort of sides.

Silva rolled the dice and brought on 3 attackers - to be honest to me it felt like a bit of a freak result that they all contributed in the last 10 mins and we won the game, but what can you say?

Would have preferred it had plan A been enough to comfortably turn them over, but we are still struggling with creativity, especially with AWB shutting down Bernard and Digne.

Gomes - donít get carried away is what I would say. Looked alright, big and powerful enough to get involved in the prem, but their CMís are not really ballers or top destroyers so at home against palace not the toughest gig in he world if you want to just stroll about and pass the ball. Great to see him slot into the side so well like but I do think the game state allowed him to.

Still predicting a year of being flakey and anonymous but tidy without ever actually doing anything from Andre, but hoping to get proved incorrect.

Lookman, needs to play imo. Get him minutes. Potential superstar. Weighed up and beat AWB within minutes. Stood him up and curled one round him instead of constantly trying to race him.

Not really a rating post but thought Tosun looked very sharp when he came on today and I thought looked pacy when he ran on to score his goal, superbly well taken I thought. Gomes looks like a Rolls Royce of a player, always calm on the ball, seems to have so much time and plays it quickly and intelligently. Could we at last have found a replacement for Arteta ?

I'm just made up with the win, not the best game in the world, Palace are a horrible team to play against at the best of times, they always somehow manage to bring teams down to their level, that's what happened to us yesterday, we got there in the end though. Whisper it quietly, but I think we'll beat United next week, nothing to fear going there anymore

Stonewall pen, zaha has absolutely roasted him and not for the first time.

More of a fence than stonewall mate. He felt the touch and played off it. Cheats never prosper which is why they missed the pen... I'd like to think anyway.

With regards to the game and our game generally. I'd like us to attack the box more when we break. Several times we go down the left with Digne and Bernard but instead of going for the byline or the box we slow it down because of lack of options for the pass.. We need players in there to get on the end of them. We have pace now and can hit teams fast but we need targets in the box.. As for Zaha? Just smile at him, hurts more.

Thought he was a little ponderous on the ball. Palace didnít press so he had time on the ball but he took too much of it and allowed them to get their bus parked. Itís why bernard and Richardson hardly got a sniff.

Itís his first game and heíll will get better but hardly set the world alight against a very average Palace team
