Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace won their opening top-flight game for only the second time in 44 years. They have never won their opening two matches in the top division.

Alan Pardew has equalled the most number of wins by a Crystal Palace boss in the Premier League (11) even though he has only been in charge for 19 games.

However, Palace have lost half of their 10 home games under Pardew (W4, D1, L5).

They only kept three clean sheets at home last season, the fewest in the Premier League.


The Gunners have not started a season with successive league defeats since the inaugural Premier League season of 1992-93.

They have won five and drawn one of their last six away matches in the league. Only Chelsea earned more away points than Arsenal’s tally of 34 last season.

Arsenal have won 42 points in 2015, a joint-league high with Chelsea.
