Fortunately our defeat at Crystal Palace has proven not to be too costly this weekend as we have come out of it with the same gap between us and our relegation rivals as we entered it
Our nearest rivals Sunderland lost 0-2 at home to Leicester City as their poor run continues, their game in hand is at home to Arsenal in a fortnight, a weekend which we have off
Newcastle travelled all the way down to Southampton to lose 3-1 to a team fighting for fith place and the final european spot
Aston Villa, very much out of the equation and as good as down lost 1-2 at home to Bournemouth
Looking up the table Palace's win has put then 6 points clear in 16th - a points tally that should now see them safe, and it is looking more and more like the match at Carrow Road next Saturday when we host Sunderland - a game that could leave us 7 points clear if we put on a performance similar to the Newcastle & Man City games recently.
