And despite predictions and odds pointing to the Eagles as the likely losers of the match, the club managed by Patrick Vieira overturned the bookmakers' predictions. 

As a result, the Selhurst Park Stadium side moved up in the overall standings and are now in 9th place in the competition. 

These were the goals with which Crystal Palace buried Arsenal

Jean Philippe Mateta opened the scoring in the 16th minute of the match when Conor Gallagher sent a precise pass to the area that fell directly to Joachim Andersen, who did not shoot because he was far from the goal, but sent it across to Mateta.

The latter did not hesitate for a second and connected with a header that put the score at 1-0, thus hurting the Gunners. 

And this wound would get bigger as in the 24th minute, Andersen was the provider of the ball once again from an accurate pass, which went diagonally to Jordan Ayew, who finished with power to annihilate Ramsdale and thus, put the 2-0 on the scoreboard. 

But the final blow came in the 74th minute and from the penalty spot when Wilfried Zaha went to fight for a ball and was fouled in the area, and the player was awarded a penalty, which became the 3-0 of the match, thus sentencing Arsenal.

Mexican Marcelo Flores did not debut in the Premier League

After it was announced that the Mexican Marcelo Flores was called up for this match by Arsenal's coach, Mikel Arteta, in the end, he did not make his debut in the Premier League, due to the fact that the match was complicated and the coach decided to only move his defenders. 

But he did not modify anything above the midfield, so "Chelo" could not have minutes in the highest English competition, although it is interesting the fact that he was called up and it only remains to be seen if Arteta will call him again for the next matches of the Gunners.

The Mexican player has not stopped being news, not only because the Canadian national soccer team wanted to field him in their national team, but the player ended up choosing Mexico as his national team.

He has also been in the news since he started playing matches with Arsenal U18 and U23, teams for which he has scored 13 goals in total in the different tournaments in which he has played, which is why he aroused the interest of Mikel Arteta, who called him up today.

However, due to the surprise victory of the Eagles over the Gunners, the Mexican could not take the field and his debut in the Premier League will have to wait.
