Crystal Palace vindicates its effort
After nearly reaching the end of the season (there's one game left), Crystal Palace vindicated their remarkable effort to stay in the Premier League (which included massive upset wins over Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool, and a draw with the defending champions Leicester City) by finishing off Hull City 4-0. The win knocked Hull City down to the Championship.
For a team that was struggling to win a game in the winter, it's pretty remarkable. They have some quality players, but in order to stay up more comfortably and perhaps try to get another Top 10 finish, they're going to have to get more quality players. They have American investors; they should figure out how to improve the team. Relegation struggles are uneasy.
But for now, they're safe for another year.
