Crystal Palace were one of the surprising teams last season, who got into the top half of the table , thanks to their manager, Alan Pardew. However, the position in the table was not enough to hide the fact that Palace had fared terribly at their home and had to win a lot of their away games last season. Pardew, would like to turn the tables this time around and would like to have better numbers, especially with their home games.
With a perfect start, Palace were beaten by a better team in Arsenal however it was by no means an easy win for the Gunners. Palace fought hard and would find peace in the fact that they could challenge and stretch Arsenal to their limits. They would like to do the same, coming weekend, when Aston Villa visits the Selhurst Park.
Pardew seemed positive going in to the match on Saturday and said
“Every home game we need to be thinking about that [improving], we have got to win our home games,” he said. “I thought we played well [against Arsenal] but we got beaten by the better team. Our levels were really high and I was pleased with the performance, but we need to turn that into results at home; we need to win more than half of our home games.
One lesson we must take away [from the Arsenal loss] is their ability under pressure to retain the ball, we have improved on that, our training is geared towards it, but Arsenal were magnificent at that.”
Pardew will still be without Chamakh but will have to accept what he has on hands. Aston Villa on the other side have found it difficult in the Premier League thus far. They would be disappointed at their efforts against Manchester United last weekend, where they lost 0-1 at home. They did well in patches but lacked consistency and would like to bring that in their play for the coming matches.
Aston Villa attack has been buoyed by the incoming of Adama Traore, the Barcelona Forward. However, Tim Sherwood is not completely satisfied with Traore’s fitness levels and would like to wait to introduce him. He said:
“Adama looked very short of fitness to me,” Sherwood told The Birmingham Mail. “He is going to need the exercise to get himself up to speed. I don’t expect too much too soon, he is a player who is developing.
We are hoping he is something for us immediately but I don’t think we should be putting too much pressure on him.”
