Why Eagles don't like Mondays
Crystal Palace fans knew just what the Boomtown Rats were getting at all those years ago when the bemoaned the first day of the working week.
Supporters of the South London side have had to endure their team winning just one of their last 15 Premier League matches to take place on a Monday, and losing eight in the process.
However, the one game that they did manage to win was a special one, the 2-1 smash and grab at rivals Brighton in February 2021.
This season has been somewhat better for the Selhurst Park side when it comes to Monday night football. Palace have drawn all three such games this term, including the reverse fixture at Arsenal in October which ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw.
