Stalemate At Dean Court
Crystal Palace's Premier League season continued with a nil-nil draw with Bournemouth at Dean Court on Boxing Day.
Palace had to be content with a point at Bournemouth on Saturday, which was still enough to move the Eagles up a place to fifth as the unbeaten run was extended to four-matches. This might have been all three but for Simon Francis clearing Damien Delaney's effort off the line.
These were the other results.
Saturday 26th December 2015
Stoke 2-0 Man Utd
Aston Villa 1-1 West Ham
Bournemouth 0-0 Crystal Palace
Chelsea 2-2 Watford
Liverpool 1-0 Leicester
Man City 4-1 Sunderland
Swansea 1-0 West Brom
Tottenham 3-0 Norwich
Newcastle 0-1 Everton
Southampton 4-0 Arsenal
Some 'Christmas crackers' weren't there!
The pressure was pilled on Man United boss Louis van Gaal even more with another defeat, slumping to a two-nil defeat at Stoke with Norwich, victorious over United the weekend before it was back down to earth with a bump losing three-nil at Spurs!
Liverpool ended their own poor run with a win over Christmas Day leaders Leicester who, in something of a rarity failed to score in a one-nil defeat at Anfield.
Arsenal blew their chance to stamp their authority on a title challenge, following the win over Man City before this (who got back to winning ways thrashing Sunderland), when they were battered in a shocking four-nil defeat at the St Mary's Stadium!
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
