Marco Giacomelli, Deputy Sports Editor, Evening Standard joined Wake Up London to discuss all the sports news of the week.
The new Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew held his first press conference Thursday afternoon.
He said his work with Palace would be a challenge. The side are under threat of relegation. Pardew stressed it was “my decision” to leave Newcastle and said:
"I want to thank all the Geordies for their help and also to (owner) Mike Ashley and everyone at the club who helped me grow as a manager.
"My resilience and character has grown because of the nature of the club."
The press conference comes ahead of the Crystal Palace v Tottenham match, which will mark Pardew's first home game for the Eagles.
Marco also discussed the Burnley v QPR game, which promises to be a battle as both sides do all they can to avoid relegation. Rangers will be hoping Charlie Austin will continue his run of good form to secure the side a win.
Rugby scrumhalf Danny Care spoke to London Live about his season so far at Harlequins.
He said, "Every game you play for 'Quins is an opportunity to show what you're about."
