On Thursday evening, Crystal Palace host Arsenal at Selhurst Park, looking to add a vital three points during the Christmas/New Year limbo period.
Amazingly, the Eagles have worked their way out of the relegation zone under Roy Hodgson and are unbeaten in eight Premier League games.
Recent wins over Watford and Leicester City were a huge boost, but the London club would have been disappointed to only draw against bottom side Swansea City.
Arsenal did well to come back strong against Liverpool, but Palace will see the three goals conceded by the Gunners as a possibility to cause an upset.
