Crystal Palace goalscorer James McArthur: We have pace, power and quality up front

Crystal Palace goalscorer James McArthur hailed their performance for the 4-1 win over Leicester City.

Speaking candidly, McArthur gave an honest assessment of the clash.

He said: "I don't think we were great in the first half, we didn't control the ball as much as we'd like but they're a good side who put us under a lot of pressure. Getting that goal changes the game and in the second half we played with a lot more confidence.

"We scored at a really good time in the match, they were obviously growing with a bit of momentum but with us, we've got that much pace, power and quality up front that we're always dangerous."
