Reeling Palace loses steady midfielder McArthur for season
When it comes to Crystal Palace’s struggles, the hits keep on coming at Selhurst Park.
Reliable midfielder James McArthur -- he of the 1933 minutes, 2 goals and 2 assists -- is out for the season with torn ligaments in his ankle.
The 28-year-old Scottish center midfielder was injured in Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat versus Bournemouth.
Palace has dropped to 12th in the Premier League after a remarkable start to the season, and is 10 points off the relegation zone. The Eagles have lost five-straight PL matches.
Looks like season over for me with ankle ligaments tore. Just another challenge in my career to make sure I work hard and come back stronger
