Roy Hodgson has called upon Crystal Palace’s renowned home support to get behind his team at home to Arsenal on Thursday night.
Palace can rise to 12th with a win at Selhurst Park but the manager is under no illusions about the difficulty of the task.
“I watched their game last Friday night [3-3 against Liverpool] and I thought they were extremely good … I thought they played exceptionally well; their attacking play was stupendous,” Hodgson told Crystal Palace’s official website.
“We know that’s what we’ve got coming … and the only advantage we have is the fact that it is at home where our fans do give us enormous support.”
