Stoke City 2-1 Crystal Palace – Premier League – 24th August 2013

Arsenal cast-off Marouane Chamakh finally got back on the scoresheet on Saturday, netting Crystal Palace’s opener against Stoke at the Britannia. However, the home side still managed to secure all three points after staging a second-half comeback.

Chamakh’s well-taken goal came on the half-hour mark although the Potters did have chances themselves in the first period. However, after the break the goals finally arrived for Mark Hughes’ charges, courtesy of Charlie Adam on 58 minutes and then Ryan Shawcross, from close-range, just four minutes later.

The Eagles tried hard to get themselves back into the game, but it was the home side who finished the strongest and ultimately, with all three points.

    It is certainly going to be a long season for Palace.

    I’m getting flashbacks of Blackpool a few years ago, but sadly without the cavalier attitude.

    Ollie is a welcome addition back to the PL interviews, but at this rate we’re not gonna see much of the happy boss.

    Long, hard season.

    As for Stoke, well what’s changed?

    Hughes will surely design them for a top 12 finish, but realistically they’ll finish 15th/16th.

    Solid, but with a “face” only a mother (fans) could love.
