One game at a time
Crystal Palace may not have been exactly dominant and convincing, but they did win against Southampton. It helped that the Southampton goalkeeper took a mighty swing at the ball in front of his own net to send it deep into the Crystal Palace zone, and instead kicked it about three feet right to Christian Benteke, who took the gift and put it where it belonged.
So they live to play another week, and Alan Pardew is still the coach.
Tune in again this weekend to watch another tightrope walk against Hull City, a game that they should be favored to win, but nothing is ever easy.
