Crystal Palace defender Brede Hangeland hopes to start against Arsenal

BREDE HANGELAND says he is fit and up for selection this weekend for the Premier League opener at Arsenal.

The former Fulham star has only played a couple of games in pre-season since signing for the Eagles a little more than two weeks ago, but he had been training on his own prior to his move to Selhurst Park.

The 33-year-old says Palace have "nothing to lose" in north London despite the hosts having the odds stacked in their favour.

Speaking earlier this week, before the departure of Tony Pulis, said: "We are definitely hungry, everyone is looking forward to Arsenal.

"We know it's going to be a really, really tough game and they will be favourites, but as Palace showed many times last season you can cause an upset if you work really hard, being well organised and take your chances.

"We go to Arsenal with nothing to lose. I am ready to play. It's been a short and sharp pre-season for me but I kept fit over the summer and there's no problem on that front.

"I am ready for selection should the manager choose to pick me.

"It's the same for every game in the Premier League. This is one of the bigger teams playing one of the smaller ones, but there are no easy games.

"If we manage to play well and stay compact and work really hard, it's possible for us to get a result. Anything is possible."

The Norwegian international was happy to see a number of Eagles supporters make last weekend's trip to Germany.

"It's one of the great things about this club - lots of people talk about how good they are," said Hangeland.
