Today: best friends forever, strong clobber and fun and games at Genoa
Crystal Palace entertain Arsenal at Selhurst Park with plenty at stake for both sides. The hosts need a win to pull a little further clear of the drop, while the visitors could do with one to boost their ailing hopes of getting knocked out of the first knockout round of next season’s Big Cup. For added subplot, the managers of both sides have plenty of previous – this will be the 32nd time they’ve sent teams out to play each other (or the 28th, depending on your paper of choice – the Fiver is too lazy to check) – and in his book Big Sam: The Autobiography, the author said Arsène Wenger “has an air of arrogance”. It’s quite the claim from a man who once announced without a trace of self-deprecation he “would win the Double or the league every time” with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United or Chelsea and whose penchant for blowing his own trumpet would later cost him the England job after only 10 minutes.
