Arsenal lucky to have 11 men - Pardew

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says Arsenal were "lucky to have 11 players on the pitch" after a series of fouls by Francis Coquelin during his side's 2-1 home defeat by the Gunners.

Olivier Giroud got the opener for the visitors before Joel Ward's driven finish levelled it up, but Damian Delaney's own-goal won the game for the Gunners' as he sliced a Sanchez header into his own net.

The unfortunate Delaney was also responsible for Crystal Palace's last own goal in the Premier League, in May 2014 against Liverpool.
