Crystal Palace 2-3 Arsenal

Winning the double Wenger became the first foreign manager to win the Premier League and FA Cup double in England in 1997-98. Arsenal overturned a 13-point deficit to win the title before beating Newcastle in the cup final

Arsene Wenger matches Sir Alex Ferguson's Premier League record of 810 games as manager this evening having outlasted a number of touchline rivals in the capital.

Crystal Palace had been undefeated in its last eight games and, though it next hosts Manchester City, it again demonstrated it can survive by often resisting Arsenal and going level with Andros Townsend's goal.

Following Arsenal's win, Wilshere was asked: 'Another game under your belt...are you back to your old best yet?'

They stay sixth, level on points with Spurs, while Palace stay 16th.

Experts predict a bad flu season for Texas
Overnight, the Center for Disease Control reported 23 states, including the Carolinas, have widespread flu activity. Individuals with weak immune systems and healthy individuals are equally likely to catch the flu virus.

That defeat inspired the Gunners' successful run which ended with an FA Cup triumph and Wenger will now be hoping this victory could start another impressive sequence at the start of 2018 as they chase Champions League football for next season.

Jack Wilshere, Sanchez and Granit Xhaka had efforts blocked by Palace's robust defending, but their resistance was ended just after the midway point in the opening period.

Crystal Palace's pressure and obvious ambition produced a goal in the 89th minute when, after a corner, Townsend crossed to James Tomkins who, under too little pressure at the back post, headed in.

Sanchez's excellence prompted the inevitable question to Wenger afterwards about whether he was fearful of losing the Chilean, especially with the striker's contract expiring at the end of the season.

The success of Congress was largely credited to the extensive campaigning conducted by party President Rahul Gandhi. However, Kakadiya's age - he is 73 years old - seems to have gone against him.

In typical Palace fashion however, the south Londoners performed admirably when heavily considered the underdog, and raced into a 2-0 lead at half time courtesy of John Salako's first half brace.

"We have come here and it is a hard game for everyone in the league. Even at 3-1 down to a team of this quality, there was no resignation or sign of not doing the right things", Hodgson said.

Wilfried Zaha was particularly sharp for the Eagles, setting up Yohan Cabaye for the first real chance, while Calum Chambers was perhaps lucky to escape punishment for handball on the edge of the area.
