Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is convinced about the ability of Marouane Chamakh.

Pulis sees something in him, perhaps like Arsene Wenger once did, and there is a suspicion that the former Arsenal striker is Palace's solution just waiting to be unwrapped.

"We have to get him the box more,' Pulis said. 'It's one thing we have talked to him about.

"I think if he scores then like all strikers he might become a bit streaky and get a run of goals.

"Technically he is a very good player. He is very good in the air and has good awareness. We need him to score the goals and that's the main thing."
