McArthur pleased with current Palace form

Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur feels they're displaying good form.

The Scot was happy with the point earned at Tottenham on the weekend.

"We defended as a unit up from Marouane Chamakh, he sets as example up top and we all followed behind him," he told the Croydon Advertiser.

"We created numerous chances and were unfortunate not to take any. I thought we defended really, really well and looked solid too.

"It was a complete performance except from taking one of those chances. We planned to go to Spurs and make it hard, stop them from playing and making sure they didn't get in behind us.

"We did that and didn't take any chances at the back. The clean sheet was well deserved and Julian Speroni hardly had any saves to make."
