EPL Round 26: Major Talking Points
What’s gone wrong at Palace?
Alan Pardew’s side were doing so well in the first half of the season, and at point looked like they would book a place for the European competitions next season. But, surprisingly, their results have deteriorated since the turn of the year. They have yet to win a single Premier League game in 2016, and have suffered six defeats in their last seven games already.
Costa is on fire
The Spain international is brimming with confidence at the moment. He is making those decisive runs between the lines, and has found his goal scoring touch again. His strike against Newcastle was his 10th of the season, of which seven of those have come since the Boxing day.
@premierleague Insane considering Costa’s season started when Hiddink took over.
