Palace ready for Arsenal test

Last Updated: Sat, 01 Feb 2014 19:08

Crystal Palace coach David Kemp insists he is relishing Sunday's daunting trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates.

The Eagles were busy on transfer deadline day with manager Tony Pulis bringing in five new faces in a bid to help the relegation-threatened side move themselves away from the drop zone.

Palace have been on a good run of form lately and currently sit in 16th position in the table having recorded back-to-back wins in the Premier League, with 1-0 victories over Hull and Stoke.

Pulis brought in Tom Ince, Wayne Hennessey, Scott Dann and Joe Ledley on Friday, whilst Jason Puncheon's loan deal was made permanent by the former Potters manager, and with the squad now looking to have strengthened in several different position, Kemp believes they have a real chance on Sunday.

"It is a great stadium and Arsenal are doing well this season," he said "We have performed well in these big games so far, so let's take it a step further. It is a learning experience - the players will certainly take some confidence from those performances."

Palace will be looking to make it three consecutive Premier League wins when they take on Arsenal and with the extra firepower of Ince and Ledley, punters may decide to use their free bet to back Pulis and co to come away with all three points.
