We have rather surprisingly had our backs against the wall during the first half at Selhurst Park, despite going ahead early on in the game.
Olivier Giroud has made things far more comfortable as we head into the second half however, with a last minute goal doubling our lead before the break.

Arsene Wenger Claims Arsenal’s Attack Is The Best It’s Been Since Thierry Henry
[Video] Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal – Santi Cazorla converts from the spot, but was the foul in the box?
Alexis Sanchez played Danny Welbeck down the line, and perhaps pushed the Englishman a little wide. He managed to get a shot away, and Julian Speroni could do nothing but palm it into the six yard box.
Giroud was waiting to smash it in – a comfortable 2-0 lead despite a less than comfortable first half.
